I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on a sunny day on May 25, 1989. I have always been known for my bubbly perky positive energy. Throughout my childhood, I endured bullying and suffered from low self-esteem. I was often compared to my mother’s beauty and that comparison made me believed that I was not beautiful. I experienced a lot of humiliation and rejection from my fellow peers which made me nervous and afraid to attend school. I was ridiculed for the way I talked and teased about my weight and body frame. Men would only approach me because of my full breast and their intention was to take advantage of my low self-esteem.
I attended Clark Atlanta University and experienced so much adversity
and broken moments that it was by the grace of God that I graduated on
May 21, 2012.
I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Mass Media Arts with a concentration in Radio, TV and Film. I had a difficult time landing a job in television. I was often rejected and told; "You are not good enough" or "Your voice is annoying". I cried many nights and once thought my dreams were dead and that God forgot all about me. God would often reassure me in my dreams, and I would see myself hosting a show or on stage in front of thousands.
God had to groom and help me to believe in myself and to know that he doesn’t make mistakes. He often reminds me that the rejection, humiliation, pain and the suffering I endured from childhood to adulthood was used to make me stronger. I currently have my own television show called Broken into Beautiful that airs on WATC TV 57 and People TV. I was the first Gospel Radio Host on the IBNX Radio Network; the show is called “The Praise in You”. This gospel radio show was the network’s top-rated show. In 2017, Clark Atlanta University recognized me for being a Distinguished Alumni. In 2018 I received the Girl Power Award from the NOW Conference. I have been a regular host for Atlanta Live and I’m often booked for speaking and hosting engagements. I just recently published my new book entitled, “From Brokenness to Marvelous.” This book could be found on Amazon, several bookstores in Georgia including my alma mater Clark Atlanta
University’s bookstore, East Chicago Public Library and my hometown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Springfield, WI and Appleton, WI.
I have experienced a lot of rejection and heartache from my industry. However, in my weak moments when I faced rejection, heartache and pain God was there
