Interests

To know me, is to know that I'm a HUGE Hip-Hop and R&B head — everything from the aesthetics (you will rarely catch me without my gold hoops), the cadence, and the pure joy I feel when a track is playing in the airwaves. When I'm not listening to music, I'm knee deep in a podcast (Still Processing, Bottom of the Map, Passing Through ... the list goes on), binge watching or catching up on my favs (A Different World, Living Single, The Real Housewives of Potomac, insert anything by Ava DuVernay) or reading a book (memoirs are my go-to). What can I say? I love amazing storytelling and content in any format.
