Description

I am a multi talented artistic Entrepreneur, Trainer, Designer, Experienced Model, National title holder, and Marketing guru. I am always pointing my career towards public speaking and love to speak about my life and all the wonderful things that have come from it so far. Like the fact that I keep my hair half way through 6 months of chemotherapy. I account keeping my hair to the fact that I eat healthy and have a healthy routine.

I have a strong passion for my personal platform call G.A.D.E.N.S. ; Growing Awareness Regarding Diet& Exercise by Nurturing Seeds. As an advocate I speak to America's youth in schools on Health issues they are facing today. I speak about wieht-loss from my personal experience of losing 110lbs and I have added my experiences and lessons from battling and defeating cancer to my database of life information that I speak on. Along with educational speaking I organize regular workout groups and classes. I hope to help others and spread a message that everything is possible.

 

I am also the Creator of C.A.N.D.Y. M.O.D.E.L.S Caring Attractive Notable Determined Youth Motivating Others & Demonstrating Excellent Leadership Skills. A online social club and talent management for models and entertainers in Florida and South Georgia hosting events year round and a yearly Pageant.
