I'm a PR Politico who has spent the last ten years teaching politicians and business people how to use their voice to achieve their goals. Now, after all the highs and lows of owning a boutique PR agency, I am taking time to find my own voice and purposefully slow down to live a more simple and sustainable life. Through this journey, I started WKND Mood, a sustainable lifestyle brand, encouraging black women to make more conscious shopping decisions and enjoy leisurely living, every day.
Slow living is a philosophy of life that encourages a purposeful and fulfilling approach to every day living. Encouraging you to slow down, reflect and seek to be in harmony with oneself, the people around you, and essentially, the earth.
Slow living is understanding that everything has a purpose, everything is not disposable and should be thoughtfully and intentionally used. Slow living helps you cultivate a life filled with intimate moments and value, and wards off the tendency to be loud, busy and unfulfilled.
I played trombone and marched with the Spartan Legion Band. To say that I love NSU would be an understatement. My four years at that institution made me who I am today and I am eternally grateful. I'm an advocate for HBCUs and also a lifetime member of NSU's Alumni Association.
In 2015 I ran my second political campaign. My client received the highest number of votes, ever, in the history of elections in the Virgin Islands. That record still stands.
I discovered the land of Toussaint Louverture in high school through the writings of Edwidge Danticat. My first book was Krik? Krak! then The Farming of Bones, and so many others that personally recount the beauty and resilience of the people and the island. I first visited to support recovery work after the 2010 earthquake and have since been back several times. Each time I've been in complete awe of the spirit of Haiti.
