HUSH No More

HUSH No More

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

I was very fortunate to have have met Dr. Vanessa Guyton and her awesome nonprofit that she’s running to raise awareness and to educate others about domestic violence in South Carolina. ⁣

speaking at event about the importance of this issue.

We walked for the victims who are now survivors and those who are still suffering. ⁣

meeting awesome people for a cause.

Domestic violence is a real issue in South Carolina and it’s only through educating others around us and educating ourselves that we can recognize the signs to help others, utilize resources and make a difference. ⁣

I choose to #HushNoMore ✊🏾⁣

With Dr. Guyton

if you or anyone you know is in need of help don’t hesitate to go here NOW:

you have the right to tell.

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.) 😊

Spreading Positivity During COVID-Crisis

Spreading Positivity During COVID-Crisis

South Carolina has definitely become a hot spot for the rise of the covid crisis happening around us. This means our health care workers are laboring tirelessly to keep people healthy while risking their own lives. They are honestly the true heroes.⁣

So on behalf of some of my @northamericabeautypageant sisters @officialelitenorthamerica ( @marylynnfuller )and @jrmissna ( @adriana_maliamay ) and myself, we decided to collaborate and make thank you cards for these awesome people.⁣

With deepest sincerity, I want to thank you all for risking your lives for us day in and day out. Front line workers like you deserve our respect, encouragement, and praise for doing what you do. Thank you! ⁣

Although I wasn’t aloud (with great understanding) to visit the hospital itself, I gave everything to Diane, the liaison and I trust they’re in good hands to hand off to our South Carolinas heroes.⁣

⁣if there is any way i can try to spread good energy during this time, i will. Everyone around us deserves it.
Stay safe guys 💚⁣

Sustaining Way

Sustaining Way

“Everybody deserves clean air, water and a healthy food supply” ♻️💚⁣

Connecting climate change to the community. I was excited to sit in at the @sustainingway ‘s virtual open house zoom meeting yesterday evening.⁣

Learning more informative ways on how to protect the environment and it’s natural resources for my community’s health and prosperity was super informative.⁣

Listening to the guest speaker James Woodley talk about his experience and what we can do to get involved now got me really inspired.⁣

I’m working on solidifying my own nonprofit ‘Its More Than Food” which provides sustainable and ethical resources for food while educating others on their carbon footprint and how they can get involved now. So being able to be a part of this gave me lots of information to get more ideas together. ✍🏾📚⁣

We are fighting for a livable future. We are organizing our communities to ignite a transformational era that ends the climate crisis by centering economic and racial justice. For more information and to sign the pledge
