I am the author and founder of “I Am Unique!”- a children’s book series and self-love brand aimed to inspire kids and adults to rise above their insecurities and share their unique gifts with the world. My interest in entrepreneurship piqued when I heard a life-changing sermon from Bishop Dale Bronner on New Year’s Eve 2012: “Don’t die with your gifts on the inside of you; impart to others what was entrusted to you.”
In 2014, I published my debut book entitled, “My Channeled Energy” - a collection of poems and short stories written from age 6-26, becoming an Amazon #1 Bestseller in two categories. My main focus now is building the I Am Unique! brand. My work has been featured in national online publications such as Forbes, Black Enterprise, Thrive, Essence, and Today.
I sit on the board of STUK Designs, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides self-love and art programming for girls of color in underserved communities worldwide.
I am a Southern California native with Jamaican roots who holds a Bachelor’s degree from Loyola Marymount University, and two Master’s degrees from Azusa Pacific University.
What I’m most proud of, though, is being able to inspire others to tap into their natural gifts and live life with purpose and intention.
Cats or Dogs:
Earth and jewel tones
The hardest thing I’ve had to unlearn:
I had to unlearn that life is not a syllabus where we’ll know everything that we’ll need to do ahead of time in order to get the desired result. That it’s not about a sequential list of things to check off in a particular order. Oftentimes, we’re called to create our own blueprint.
Favorite recess activity as a child:
That I’m always serious...many don’t know, or get to see my goofy side.
