Meet Our Featured OWNers
I have been married to Allan for 17 years and am a mother of a 15-year-old daughter, Ashten Rae. My motto is that I love you the moment I meet you. I love flowers, the color pink, coffee, movies, baths, cotton pajamas, biographies and being authentic. I pursue joy with a vengeance and am attracted to others who reek of it.
What is your favorite OWN show?
My favorite show on OWN? Too hard to choose, but it is Iyanla: Fix My Life. I resonate with this show because it is important for every human being to "do the work" in order to become whole. We are complete when we accept our truth and allow that truth to usher us into the greatness we are destined to be.
What are your three favorite things?
My three favorite things are coffee, cotton pajamas and any kind of movie that is not a horror movie!
What would your superpower be?
If I had a superpower, it would be to look into someone's dream and make it come true.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Sing the song that is in my heart.
What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
Peek in on my daughter.
What is the one item you can't live without, and why?
Honestly, I could not think of one item that I can't live without, because items are things and they don't mean as much to me as people and relationships. (I know that is boring, but it's my truth).
What do you like that most people dislike?
Going to the movies alone.
What are you proudest of?
I am proudest of my family. Our ability to love unconditionally.
Who is your hero?
My hero is my godmother, Constance. She did not realize that she was providing young girls with self-esteem, while making a difference in our lives through dance. She was just giving the best that she had, which was her time. Her passion for dance eradicates limitations of age, race, gender and ability.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is negativity.
What would you like to learn to do?
What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
