Blair Cassuto

You never really know where your path is leading until you get there. At 18 Blair moved from her hometown of Miami to pursue a career in Fashion and instead discovered just how much she loved music. She started a music blog interviewing influential artists way back before it was a “thing” and because our…

Cassidy Jordan

PR aka public relations aka you basically just need people skills right? Can’t be that hard, right? I think we have this perception of certain careers as being “easier” than others, especially when it comes to “influencers” or “bloggers” or “models” and the list goes on. It gives many of us some leverage to feel…

FreakJawn

More and more we are finding allies in our own kind. But is that womankind or only womankind that looks like you and values what you value? How do you feel about sex workers? Today we meet the woman behind FreakJawn. She drives me insane, but she’s also taught me a lot.  She’s one of…

Day 24: Niki “Venus Roots” Thais

Niki, or better known as her ig handle and pen name “Venus Roots”, is a modern marvel to me because to this day I have never met any one as woke, conscious, and opinionated as her that still manages to be all inclusive. She is as bougie as they come yet it applies to her…

Day 23: Paige Shari

Paige is my official girl crush. I legit messaged her one day “hey idk you but your vibe is BANANAS and I want to be friends. Bye.”   I don’t think those were the exact words but even just from IG (and I never make assumptions off of IG) I was convinced she had the…

Day 22: Carole Hollant

Growing up with people can be so rewarding. You get to watch them evolve. I’ve known Carole since I was a gap-toothed shawty and back then I would’ve sworn she would’ve pursued an acting career (although its certainly not out of the question 👀). We reconnect at FIU orientation and it was such a rewarding…

Day 21: Nastassia Simpson

Nastassia is a breath of fresh creative air. I know how hard it can be to stay original and inspired and not subscribe to what trends say that you should be doing, but she makes it seem effortless. If you’ve been in her presence you’ve felt her grace and experienced her aura. She’s amazing in…

Day 20: DJ Luna

When I was in about the 9th grade, I wanted to be a dancer. I took ballet when I was younger but quit, then all of a sudden I had a dance class in high school and there was a dance team, and I wanted to be a dancer! Problem was, I wasn’t flexible and…

Day 19: Fara Charles

Your style speaks for you before you even have the chance, but not all of us are gifted in the styling realm. I think the same way our intuition speaks to us and some of us are equipped to listen, there are people in this world with a super power that allows them to create…

Day 18: Cristina Pimienta

I’ve been watching Cristina hustle for years! Her tiny stature and big canon always squeezing, bobbing and weaving through crowds getting all the right shots and making memories. You might not even see her at first , that is until a large ball of curls comes bouncing your way. She’s spicy (like her last name)…

Day 17: Glenneisha Darkins

Today goes to a woman that has taught me, there are no excuses. It somewhat irritates me to have to mention that Glenny was in a terrible accident that made her paraplegic because she is a powerful, smart, and ambitious woman PERIOD, not in spite of her circumstances and she continues to inspire those around…

Day 16: Jessica Catalano

I met Jess the same place that I met art. Trying to escape the horror that is the International Baccalaureate program at Coral Reef Senior High, I opted for IB ART instead of Psych, which would have been more pressure and mental torture, (plus in art we got free sketchbooks!) I figured it couldn’t be…
