March Of Dimes – Drive Through Parade

March Of Dimes – Drive Through Parade

April 30th i had the pleasure of participating in the March Of Dimes – SC drive through parade.

March of Dimes is a United States nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies. “We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.”

During the drive through we were given a scavenger hunt that taught us a bit more about March of Dimes and why is so important for their initiative to be alive.

A premature baby may look tiny and fragile to touch but don’t underestimate the courage, strength, and determination of a baby born too soon.

I stand with all moms and parents who are taking action to help provide better care, awareness and resiliency to child birth 🤰🏾💖

Sweet & Savory Charity Event

Sweet & Savory Charity Event

I had a BLAST volunteering for @palmettoplace ’s annual Sweet & Savory chef competition! 🍽🌟⁣

This event is designed to be a virtual silent auction along with having the most talented chefs across the Midlands cook up bomb dishes. Guest were able to vote on their favorite sweet and savory dishes from each chef. 🗳🍡🍗⁣



All funds raised from Sweet & Savory directly support @palmettoplace programs for residents.⁣

I was able to network with so many people and gather over 1000 dollars in sponsorships for resident needs at their housing 😱💲✨💫⁣



It was an incredible day in honor of April being #NationalVolunteerMonth – I encourage you to get out in your community and make a difference❤️⁣

Black History Month

Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.

In 1915 after the 13th amendment abolished slavery in the U.S Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent.

As we are approaching the end of what society considers ‘Black History Month” – black history should always be celebrated and recognized all 12 months of the year.

It’s important to recognize, appreciate and show gratitude to those who came before us and the sacrifices made.

Below are some links to different articles you can read to further the discussion of black history and what it really means. – I encourage you to do your own research too.

Human Rights Day ✊🏾⁣

Human Rights Day ✊🏾⁣

December 10th is #HumansRightDay ✊🏾⁣

As we all know in 2020 we have seen a lot of changes, both on a global scale and in our personal lives. It seems that this year has forced us to confront the many ways our society has fallen short in its ability to take care of everyone, especially the members of its most vulnerable sectors. ⁣

This human rights day let us acknowledge these struggles and speak up for them where we can.✊🏾 ⁣



May we continue this advocacy, because we all deserve human rights. Let’s not just talk to people inside our own bubble about equality, let’s reach outside.✊🏾⁣

The Gables at Cobb Village

The Gables at Cobb Village

I had the lovely pleasure of being with my teen for North America (@missteenna) at the ⁣The Gables at Cobb Village 👩🏿‍⚕️👩🏾‍⚕️

With social distancing and safety precautions taking place we were able to sit down and talk with some of the lovely residents and put a smile on their face despite the odds with COVID.

I got to talk more in detail about myself, the behind the scenes of winning the title and what it means to me while also discussing how I plan to make a difference. 

It was very fulfilling. ⁣🙏🏾

Also getting some quality hang out time with Alex and getting to know her more was a nice plus 💗⁣

(for those who are concerned; mask were taken off for photos but were worn around residents and for the safety of others.) 😊
