Since I was in my early 20's, I was always on a quest for "What Am I Here For?" and by golly, I am so thankful to 'seek and ye shall find'. Every time I think I 'have arrived', I realize there's more than meets the eye AND more to come - how exciting!!
With that, I had such an amazing and inspiring week! I was given the privilege of being invited to the Brazilian Chamber of Commerce as they celebrated the Brazil Fest. It was really amazing, VIPs of the city and from the country of Brazil including the Consulate General of Brazil were in attendance and everything from the 2014 World Cup and its opportunities, the 2016 Olympics and increasing tourism to the beautiful state of Bahia, Brazil where Salavdor is located were items of discussion. (Forget what you heard about Rio de Janiero, there's a new destination in town!)
That was followed by a wonderful panel discussion held at Spelman College by Friday Girl TV's "Talk Back Series", The Sex Kitten vs. The Super Brain: A Panel Discussion of African American Women in Media The panel included:
- Renee Knorr, Fashion & Beauty Director of THE 19TH HOLE Magazine
- Nina Brown, Producer of WXIA (11 Alive)
- Nicci Gilbert, Writer, Director and Producer formerly of the R&B group Brownstone
- Saptosa Foster, PR Maven and co-founder of 135th Street Agency
- Jazzy McBee, On-Air Personality Hot 107.9
- Angela Gomes, Writer & Director at TBS
As I venture into another week of uncertainties, I know it only holds the best of the greatest possibilities that are limitless and full of purpose. And I know that all that I encounter, people, places, things and sit-che-a-tions (LOL), are purposed for my good!
Enjoy the pics, more will be posted soon and let this inspire you to KNOW your life has tremendous purpose and positive power!
