Over the Labor Day weekend, I was spotted in New Jersey sitting on the stoop. I rocked a white pair of Armani Exchange cargo shorts $70, Armani Exchange tee-shirt $30, with a pair of all white Nike Air $80. If you know me, you know that I always keep a hat on my head. With this outfit, I rocked a red Robin’s Jean hat $90.
If I could just get your attention, for about 2 minutes; I will like to start off my thanking each and every one of you guys for visiting my blog and leaving negative and positive comments. Without you guys, this blog wouldn’t be as big as it is; so I will really like to say thanks and I appreciate all the support. It really means a lot to me. On September 10, it will be six months since I started this blog. Growing up, I always wanted to be a journalist and write for XXL, The Source and Vibe magazines, but I wasn’t too sure if my dream would ever come true. I knew if I work hard at it, there will be a possibility that I can achieve my dream and I did. Now I have an article published in the May 2010 issue of XXL magazine. PLEASE KEEPING READING.
NEXT PAGE: PLEASE KEEP READING TO HEAR MY STORY
Being a journalist/blogger and music manager, were just two of my smallest dreams. My biggest two dreams were to graduated from college and to let my voice be heard. On May 17, 2010, I graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Journalism and Media Studies, with a minor in Africana Studies. By starting this blog, it helped me let my voice be heard and I touched so many Peoples around the world. I NEVER knew that I will be an inspiration to people all the way in Jamaica. This internet thing is unbelievable. It gave me the opportunity to touch others, saved young Blacks and Latinos males from selling drugs and joining gangs. When I first started this blog back in March, I was a senior in college and was lost mentally. I was dealing with a lot of stress because my oldest brother and best friend both were murdered. So, I used writing to express my true thoughts and feelings.
Many doors were slammed in my face, but I kicked those same doors down and walked in. If I can make it coming out of the projects you can to. When I speak, go to interviews, and meeting, I am representing for ever Black and Latino male that comes from the inner cities and projects. People can take many things from you; your money, your love, your family and friends, but don’t ever let them take your dream. Always remember that a dream is just a dream without a vision. You have to have a vision and take action to turn your dream into reality.
During my senior year at Rutgers University, I took an internship in the editorial department at XXL magazine. During my eight months there, I wrote news stories, got an article published in the May 2010 issue and interviewed rapper Juelz Santana backstage at his concert. After graduating from Rutgers University in May 2010, and ending my internship with XXL, I landed another internship with www.globalgrind.com. During my short time at Global Grind, I wrote news stories and covered VH1 Hip-Hop Honor: Dirty South red carpet. On the red carpet, I interviewed Gucci Mane, Slime Thug, Juvenile, Ying Yang Twins, Dem Franchise Boyz, J Prince, and Bun-B. As of today, I am a contributing writer for XXL magazine, a media consultant intern for ThedaDotCom LLC and aspiring music manager.
“One thing that separates me from other Journalists/Bloggers is that when I do interviews and post my blogs, I don’t have any friends. I post the truth and asks the questions that the fans want to know.”
