Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

I will say that I started to fall in love with fashion during my high school days. This is because I went to a boarding school and this meant that we had to be in uniforms all through school sessions. I always liked school holidays because it gave me the liberty to actually wear whatever I liked and not some boring uniform.

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?

I will not say I have a signature style because the way I feel dictates my style each day.However, I like to pick outfits that accentuate my curves, bright and comfortable.
My style is more about pairing inexpensive pieces with expensive accessories to make the whole outfit standout and unique

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

To be honest I have never really been a person who fancy big brand names when it comes to clothing. I am happy to wear simple and inexpensive clothing as long as the material is of good quality and fits me perfectly. However, when it comes to accessories, bags and shoes; then designers like Gucci and Louis Vuitton are my current favorite.

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?

My current style crush is Rihanna because anything she wears just looks super dope.

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

When putting together my outfit, I basically plan ahead and already have a good idea of what the whole outfit will look like before I go out.
Trends also plays an impact on put together my outfit because I want people to be able to relate to what I am displaying.

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

These days I mostly shop online and I basically shop from stores like missguided, fashionova, Boohoo, H&M and the likes

I Developed AIDS At The Age of 22 From Someone In The Music Industry

At the time, I was a sophomore at Sam Houston State, planning to pledge Alpha Kappa Alpha and ride out my college experience. But, I was also at that point in life where I longed to have Prince Charming sweep me off my feet so we could live happily ever after. Admittedly, I felt that without this element of my life, I was incomplete. I was a broken, lost, and scattered soul – not at all prepared for what I was about to endure.

I met him in a nightclub parking lot in Houston, Texas. I was 19 years old.

Our life was filled with power, sex, drugs, and strip clubs.

I got anything I wanted – designer clothes and shoes and entry into the hottest parties. I was rubbing elbows with the biggest names in music and the lifestyle pulled me in. So, when the cheating, lies, disrespect, emotional and mental abuse started, I had no exit plan because I constantly pacified the severity of our unhealthy relationship. Our relationship came to an abrupt end when I found out through a mutual acquaintance that he had impregnated another woman. That was the last straw and I finally left him.

A few months later, I passed out in the shower.

When I woke up, the paramedics were doing their best to keep me conscious. After being released from the hospital that day, I went back home still not feeling like myself. I had chills so bad, I was shaking like a leaf. I had a fever of 105 and I felt as if my body was starting to leave earth, and I was powerless to stop it. I tried over-the-counter medicines to bring my fever down, but nothing worked.

Eventually, I was rushed back to the hospital where I fell into a partial coma.

Immediately, my priority became advocacy. I never wanted another woman to feel how I felt the day I was given my diagnosis, but I didn’t know where to begin. Who was to blame? Was he to blame for being careless and abusive? Was I to blame because I chose not to ask his status? Either way, everything in my life was changing. I vowed to share my story with the world and inspire others about the importance of self love.

As my advocacy journey took off, I veered further away from my life in the music industry. A friend convinced me to confront my ex-boyfriend and share my truth. When I did, he was hardly receptive. Even as I walked away, he disrespectfully called out to me and said I should give him another chance because my ass got fatter. I was disgusted, but proud of myself for standing up to him, telling him what he’d done and showing him that he hadn’t broken me.

Now, I travel the country speaking to people of all ages about what it means to live with AIDS. I’m still baffled by the level of unawareness associated with the stigma of AIDS and HIV. Often, I get asked questions that remind me how far we have to go as a society to learn about this virus, which is the first step in eradication. I’ve been living with AIDS for 11 years and my virus is currently undetectable, which means that is is absolutely untransmittable.

People I encounter are often shocked that I’m still alive.

It’s still a little known fact that medicine has come a long way, and that staying on top of your medication and taking good care of your health can help people living with AIDS and HIV live long and happy lives without the threat of spreading the virus to their loved ones.

Not only do I dedicate my life to educating people on the facts behind the HIV/AIDS epidemic, but I also facilitate self love workshops. This is what it took for me to find this incredible understanding of my own power and of my unstoppable ability to push through.
