Earlier this year I received an email congratulating me on being nominated for the 100 Woman Of Color award in my home state of Connecticut! This honorable award ceremony is given by motivational speaker, music producer, author June Archer! This award is given to women of color who have excelled in their career and who are giving back to their communities and peers. I was honored to be an honoree for this prestigious award along with 99 other thriving women of color.

The pandemic changed so much in everyone’s lives it broke some of us and built some of us up; it also built friendships as well. This gala was supposed to be held indoors in April but was pushed back all the way until August. During that time some of the honorees’ connected and I happened to connect and become very close to Children’s Author & Speaker Anna Nyakana. Besides Anna being an amazing soul, a great motivator and friend her book Niyah Zuri And The Pharaoh’s Throne was absolutely spectacular. My two daughters who are 12 and 8 years old took turns reading the book to me and they loved it.
