Only in 8th grade, the girls started a clothing brand to help spread awareness on #Blackeniese.
I gave them insight on photography and modeling. How to use lighting and directing/focusing on thier subject.
In October 2017 I had the amazing opportunity to present at Pines Charter's Career day in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Nervous but the nerves were not enough to miss out on the chance to show kids that there is possibility to succeed with a creative career in the Arts.
Thank you to Simone Russell for having me.

Showing the kids who were interested in photographing some tips while those interested in modeling were posing!
In December 2017, Dominique decided to pursue one of her passions of creating a safe space to speak on a taboo topic, mental heath.
She extended the invitation to have me as one of the panelist curating the questions for the audience and share a bit of my background with mental health.
While we were not looking to give any professional advice on mental health issues, the space was intended to be a place where people can express and talk about their personal experiences with the matter.
It turned out to be a very successful event that no one wanted to part ways with!
On Feb 25 I followed my intuition and curated a female only photo walk to kick off Women's Month 2018. Check out the promo vid & recap, both edited by Yogi of Soul Dreamin (aka me)
I'm Every Woman Photo Walk is for beginner and advanced photo enthusiasts, whether you are a photographer, muse or simply a feminist. During the photowalk we will be exploring the nature and streets of Miami. Focusing on how to capture the raw essence of your subject and how to express that essence. More importantly, we will be coming together and sharing a representation of women by women so join us in uplifting the divine and connecting with your local G I R L. Come comfortably dressed, with your choice of shooter weapon and your cutest, cozy outfit for a day out exploring and learning in the girl-gaze <3
On Wednesday, March 21,2018 I had the honored to join a panel at FIU campus in Miami to talk to the students about my perspective of art and activism. Lead by Alina Rubio and joined with South Florida artists who are creating a change with their movement we joined the LGBTQA initiatives at FIU.
