Kanye West, Rihanna & Fonzworth Bentley
How about musically?
Beyonce influences me to be on top of my game and never let my mind become cluttered with bullsh--. She's the epitome of how women of color should be. Jay-z because he shows me that my hustle can go beyond working in retail. I learned a lot through that American Gangster album. But... Blueprint was the best. And last but not least Lupe Fiasco. He shows me that the mind is very much endless in thought. My imagination can stretch beyond blogging and writing out thoughts through poetry. He lets me know I can aspire to be... myself and be cool with it.

I see the person youve grown to be, but not who you were before..what was it that changed your life to get where you are now?
Earlier in my life I lived without a care. Huge tomboy. Started being labeled gay.. So I ended up femming it up. I fell in love in 2007. That ended out of midair in 2008. The emotional time I had bombed me. I hit rock bottom. And I developed a stronger relationship with God. He helped me to get out of it. He helped me get here. I learned how to put Him myself and family first.

Finally....last famous words
Friends come and go. Lovers come and go. But God and family are always there no matter what. Remember that all great achievements require time (quote from Maya Angeleou)
