Proud of my Culture Event



Took a little time out of my schedule In August-September of this year, to collaborate with this Non Profit organization to produce Charity Event "Proud of my Culture Heritage Show". This image showing the Top guy, Issac and he is driven by his passion. He loves his country "Kenya". The cause he had in mind was to build a water well for the children in the out skirts of the country. The children attending a Primary School are in need to a fresh sustainable water source. This was no small effort, the number of performers organizers, and contributors that came together for this cause was tremendous.

Water Well Project


This was a very successful endeavor. We had a full audtioruim with people who were every enterained. Myles of Great Hopes rasied alot of money through ticket sale, silent auction, and the Kenyan Cheff provided a delicious dinner.The Gofundme page is still up and we are still working on reaching the goal.  We want these children with have fresh water... I hope that you find a way to not only donate, but like share post this everywhere.
Its a simple ting that we take for granted here in the U.S. but it means so much.

Town of Cary Hosted Diversity Summit

Diversity Summit
We all had the same look of confused amazement when told that Town of Cary would be hosting a conversation of this nature. I admit I too was optimistically cautious. This Diversity summit was held in the Cary Arts Center, a beautiful location. They had 3 separate panels to discuss Diversity in Church, Community and Corporate America.

The Martin Luther King Jr. quote : "it is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning." was the inspiration for the first panel. This was a fitting way to start the discussion on such a still touchy topic. The panelist were composed of 5 of the largest and most noticeable church leaders in The triangle area. 


Each pastor has a unique perspective on Diversity in church and why more church are not diverse. 2 of the panelist Pastor Benji and Pastor Lewis both stated that their churches were at least 40% non white. While Pastor Andy could boost that he had the most watch churc…

African Wax Prints in the Triangle

Ankara, Kente, Wax Print so many choices!! 
So I admit I have  slight love affair with the print. It's the colors like red which I wore for a year. and Orange that i wore another year, i alway had an affection for nice colors. African wax prints lets me have several at once. The patterns are beautiful. This obsession is not exclusive to me. Internet searches had proved that its a slight trend in this look. Okay not a big enough trend for Google but enough for my Facebook feed to be a little brighter. 

My lovely husband brought back these 3 dress after a trip home and that was it. Did you know that custom made dresses is common in Africa. If you want a dress just send your measurements.
