All in Together Girls Reading

On Tuesday, November 24, 2015 I read All in Together Girls to the children at Easter Seals Center and Southeast Ohio. These little kids were so adorable. I had the pleasure of reading my storybook to four groups of students, which consisted of about 10-20 students in each group. They were between the ages of 3-5 years old.

My favorite part of reading the book was when I talked with the kids about the book, the costumes of the characters, and if they had any questions. Their responses were classic, such as: their birthdays being in November, the characters being dressed up as pumpkins, and having a question, but not really having a question.

Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Boss Event

Inspirational Quotes- Mrs. Bernard
This past Saturday, I attended the 2nd Annual, Think Like a Lady, Act Like A Boss Event in Jersey City, New Jersey. The event was held at Saint Peter's University by Alexandra Bernard, who is an entrepreneur, choreographer (The Evolution of Hip Hop), and motivational speaker. Mrs. Bernard was very insightful in providing helpful quotes, ways to get over misfortune, and my favorite, ways to turn negative situations into positive ones. She definitely had a heartfelt story to tell, which she shared with all of the individuals in the room. She empowered individuals on how to strive when things do not go as planned and making the most out of every situation. 

While at the event, I had the opportunity to speak to one of the speakers one-on-one, Jessica Moss. Ms. Moss told me that she was going to speak to individuals about financial planning using a 401K plan, 403 B plan, and personal savings. She also was going to disuss school, colleges, credit scores, and other things that she would fit within a 30 minute presentation. Although 30 minutes was not long to speak about everything, She assured me that she was willing to meet with individuals on a one-on-one basis to discuss their financial planning initiatives and opportunities. What was amazing to Ms. Moss was that her degree was in Criminology, but her focus was financial planning. I am sure a lot of us can relate to going to school for one thing and then working in a career for something else. Definitely a story I can relate to and welcome. Our discussion also lead to entrepreneurs having to do numerous things to continue to grow, develop, and succeed.

Some of the other interesting and amazing people I talked with at the event were Juice Plus, Traci Lynn Jewelry, Blue Zaria, Leilo's Sweet Shop, and of course my author friend, Sonya Felice Jenkins. I purchased books, networked with vendors, and increased my drive on why I must succeed. Check out other pictures from the event below.

2nd Annual Independent Authors Book Expo

This past Saturday, I participated in the 2nd Annual Independent Authors Book Expo. The event was very well organized. The event coordinator, Renaee Smith, did a great job with developing the event and being very accommodating to the authors. Definitely an event that I would take part in the future. 

At the event, I had an opportunity to discuss my books, perform a poem, network with authors, talk to guests, and read my children's book to the children at the event. The event was a family friendly event, so kids and people of all ages were welcomed. I smiled with joy as I got an opportunity to interact with the kids and adults at the event. It was great being around like individuals who also were determined to make a difference.

A memorable moment at the event was talking to Se'Quince Aikens. Se'Quince was an 18 year old author who was diagnosed with having cerebral palsy. I was moved by this young lady who was very jubilant. I just had to buy two of her books about life being a journey. I am sure my nieces in middle school and high school will enjoy their gift.

Much success to Se'Quince and the other authors at the event. Below, you will find other pictures from the event.

Enjoy! Aaron is a wonderful Illustrator

All in Together Girls Children Book Fun Shop

This past Friday I participated in an event developed by ADC Kid and Ferry Ave Branch Library. The event was a Children Book Fun Shop for individuals between the ages of 5 to 12. The fun shop was amazing. ADCKid is a "company dedicated to the advancement of empowering and enlightening though literacy, fitness, and animation.

Much of the company's strategic focus was displayed at the fun shop. The kids danced, listened, sang, drew, and socialized. The program even had teenagers and adults participating in the event. The children were so full of life and had no worries.

It was a delight working with ADC Kid. Stay tuned for future events that I will be attending.

All in Together Girls

Excited about the Children Book Fun Shop that I will be doing in Camden, New Jersey on Friday, September 4, 2015. I will be raffling off two kid's shirts from the book. The kids between the ages of 5 to 12 will complete a kids activity with me and then put together a small little goodie bag. All in Together Girls is about a childhood jump rope game that some kids use to play as children. It teaches children about all the months, the weather associated with those months, how to work in a team, and that it is ok to lose. 

If you are in the area, check it out. Bring your kids, nieces, nephews, and friends.

A Meeting with Tina C. Hines (Life Transformation Specialist)

Today was a great day. It started out by me waking up early this morning to take my car to the shop to get new tires. This trip led me to walking to Subway and having breakfast at the restaurant. I cannot tell you how long it has been since I have eaten breakfast or lunch for that matter at a local Subway. I usually just grab my order and go. Today was different though. I had time to share, so I relaxed and just let my mind be free.

Next, I returned to the shop and had a friendly conversation with another patron who was waiting for his car. The conversation was about the family on the TV and their nationality. This led to other discussions about food, health, and youth. This definitely helped the time go by as I waited for my car.

My next adventure led me to meeting with Tina C. Hines, Life Transformation Specialist. Tina was a breath of fresh air as she opened up about her life and other information that is unusually for a first meeting. I felt connected with her. Although my emotions did not display this in the beginning, I started to open up more and more and we continued our discussion. So glad I was able to meet her face-to-face and I look forward to future collaborations or meetings.

Straight off the press. Ready for you to digest. Read with an open mind. No longer will your third eye be blind.

New edition of ME! Newsletter. Welcoming our new writer, Deven Williams. So impressed with this young man who expressed his interest in writing for this and future editions. He really took to his article about Invisible Shackles to a whole new level. Educating folks about the many disparities faced by African-Americans. Congrats Devin on an article well done. My other writer T. Ayan Nelson​ also did a wonderful job in writing about reparations. She focused on both sides of the story and provided great links for people to make their own conclusion. They both did a great job!
