I don’t think “Thank You’s” are a thing for personal brands & websites but I’m doing one anyway so here goes… I wouldn’t dare try to list everyone by name… I’d be here all day but you know exactly who you are.
First and foremost Thank You to My Creator, My Savior, My King. All glory to him because my very being wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for him. Thank you for entrusting me with this light.
My mother, Joan. You are all I want to be. My strength comes from you. Watching you sacrifice and raise 5 children practically on your own. I’m a better woman and mother because of you. I Love You. To my baby sister, Snookem, I don’t know what I’d do without you. Period. Every person should have a “Snookem” in their life and the world would be a better place. I Love You. To My Baby Brothers, Gary, Chris and Quincy, I am so proud to be a big sister to you three and I hope that I make you proud as I lead you in the best way I can. I Love You something serious. To my Babygirl, JadaBear. You are the reason my heart has a beat. I still can’t believe I have a baby and you’re 11 now! Don’t grow up anymore, okay? I hope I make you proud! I LOVE YOU BABY!
And now to everyone else! If you’ve ever supported me in any way, form or fashion, I THANK YOU! Not just for your support, but your friendship, companionship, love and believing in me and my vision. I am OVERWHELMED with the love and support that you have all shown me over the past 20 years. I wouldn’t have been able to create my art if you didn’t buy me that first camera, if you didn’t be my Makeup Artist, if you didn’t model for me, if you didn’t babysit my daughter, if you didn’t hire me to shoot your concerts, if you didn’t hire me for your wedding, if you didn’t open your studio to me, if you didn’t trust me, believe in me and the vision I’ve had since I was a little girl.
We are so consumed by a world that puts more value on social media LIKES than LOVE from the people standing right in front of us. We’re all so lost, spinning on darkness. all wanting to be seen, touched, heard, and paid attention to. But too often we still stand in emptiness. We’ve given love to some who weren’t brave enough to love us back but YOU! You all have been endless, no matter how much time has gone by since we last spoke. I give hard and I love even harder. Many will never understand this.
Thank You for being apart of my journey in my pursuit of happiness and encouraging me to display my vulnerability through my art and manifesting my dreams.
Your connection to me is more valuable than you’ll ever know. My creative work is more than my creations, this is you, this is me, this is my legacy, your legacy that I’ll leave behind even after my last sun set. You all are a part of this and I LOVE YOU for that.
