In life you may have heard, you’re too short, tall, thin, curvy, light, or dark. If so, that should not stop you from moving forward on your dream. When I was younger I wanted to be a model and some of those standards were communicated to me. That definitely has not stopped me from achieving my goal. Although not a model, I fused that energy in my fashion and I display it with confidence, wherever I go. Confidence breaks down all the standard requirements and gives you the opportunity to fulfill your dreams.
I stand 5’0 tall with no heels and 115lbs and I ripped the runway March 15, 2014 at the Houston Museum of African American Culture with several beautiful ladies. This fashion show was geared toward HBCU’s (Historical Black Colleges and Universities) to raise money for scholarships. It was sponsored by Teriya Richmond creator of MMW (Mocha Millennium Woman) and Project 1855.
Some models that participated attended HBCU’s and even I represented Southern University and A&M College Baton Rouge. It was a fabulous night filled with fashion, networking, and entertainment.
There were 5 Boutiques that were showcased in the fashion show.

Not only was this a party with a purpose but it set the tone that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Seeing all these beautiful ladies ‘strut” on the runway was amazing.
I am looking forward to the next MMW event.
