Meet Our Featured OWNers
"I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in management from Grambling State University. A true jack of all trades, I'm currently making my mark in the publishing field."
What are your three favorite things?
My family, life and following my dreams of becoming a famous writer.
What would your superpower be?
The ability to read the minds of others. The art of discernment is worth its weight in gold, but the ability to read the thoughts of anyone in the world would be priceless.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Turn on the news.
What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
Check my email and social media outlets one last time.
What is your favorite OWN show?
The Haves and the Have Nots. I didn't think I was going to like that show, but from day one I have been addicted.
What is the one item you can't live without, and why?
The Internet. I am always checking my email, faxing documents online, tweeting, posting to Instagram and so forth. If I'm not connected to what's going on in the world, I feel lost.
Who is your hero?
My mother. She has a heart of gold and is the most sincere person I have ever known. Even when things didn't always turn out right, or when people turned out to be less than honest, she would never get upset. Her philosophy on life has always been to "put people in the hands of the Lord" when they do wrong. That speaks volumes regarding her character because very few would react in such a manner. She's a firm believer in family and would do anything to help us (my siblings) if we were in need. She's my rock and I would be lost without her.
What are you proudest of?
My bachelor's degree in management. Although I am currently pursuing another path, no one can take this degree from me. I worked hard for it and cherish it tremendously.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Complete strangers getting too familiar with me, meaning that just because I'm from the South, that doesn't automatically mean I want to hear about your divorce, diet, life story, job, etc. I'm cordial in all instances and prefer to keep it that way, especially with people I really don't know like that.
What would you like to learn to do?
Speak Japanese. I find the language interesting, and with a degree in management, it could come in handy one day within the corporate sector.
What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
Calling people. Unlike most women, I hate talking on the phone. I prefer to text/email and keep it moving. Life is short, and I don't want to spend mine having a phone conversation about absolutely nothing. :-)
