Boss Lady, CEO, owner, coordinator, Mogul. Just a few of the hats worn by Tia Hamilton. When I first met this wonderful lady, it was a quick phone chat and a car ride to and from and event that would put us on the road to working with each other. Little did I know that the effects of that meeting would be as far reaching as they are now. She does not claim to know everything, but what she gets her hands on turns into something you want to be a part of once you find out about it.…Continue

I was watching in the media, they seemed to focus on the POTUS and his aging over his tenure in office. Some related it to stress and time in office and others, like myself, likened it to age. But no matter who you are your hair is your crown!
There are many famous and non famous people who wear their crowning glory as an achievement and a testament to what…Continue

This law also requires Photoshopped materials to include a caveat “retouched photograph.” This law is to take effect starting Jan. 1, 2017
Have you ever watched the gleam in an artists eye when they are truly feeling their music? The slow fire that builds up and seems to surround them. The embodiment that surfaces when you see the dedication to the craft. As the room started to fill on this rainy Monday night, I knew it was about to come alive with hip hop and movement for the album release party for M.A.M.…Continue

The other day on my personal facebook page, someone posted a list. This list was the names of the individuals killed in the Baltimore area. Why did they post this list? She had something to say. Family members were on this list, cousins, friends, childhood memories and laughter. My heart hurt with her as she described how it felt to learn of…Continue

My boyfriend and I sat down to watch DVD movies this weekend. As usual, I had Law and Order on the TV and they were showing their marathon on Domestic Violence and how to support in the fight against domestic violence. I was not really watching but the TV noise kept me company for awhile. One of the movies he had was…Continue

We have been through thick and thin, partied together, crashed together, been to the hospital together, we have done life together. I was there to support her when her mother passed, her father and her sister. I adopted her as my own sister knowing I would never take…Continue

A typical conversation about domestic violence has the victim asking…Continue

Not sure if that was because my dad was with the police or if he just did not feel the need to. One…Continue
