The Miss Voluptuous Diva 2016 Pageant

Greetings!

I hope all is well with everyone! Thanks again for reading :) I am coming at you guys with a blog post covering The Miss Voluptuous Diva 2016 Pageant. First, please allow me to give my gratitude from both myself, and my lovely assistant, Nikhaule, to the Founder, Miss Barbara Ellzey. Because of her, we were able to experience fun, fashion and fellowship at this beautiful event! We hope to be able to attend her evets in the future, as this one was so impressive.

If you are wondering what this pageant is all about, here's a quick summary from the Facebook page: "The Miss Voluptuous Diva USA Pageant celebrates full-figured women's curves-beyond a size 14. It is a empowerment pageant for next level women. In partnership with the Reach Leadership Program For Girls." As curvy women ourselves, Nikhaule and I can certainly appreciate that this program gives recognition to us thick women and acknowledges that poise, passion and praise can come in all sizes. 

I first send my congrats to the winner, Latonya Bright, and to all of the women who were able to place and win awards. They are very well deserved as every single last contestant was absolutely fabulous and a joy to witness. I wish all of the contestants the best in their future endeavours as they clearly have bright futures ahead of them. As I can tell from their back ground biographies that they shared during the ceremony, all of them stand for something positive. Some even came from nothing yet have ascended to great heights in life. 

Besides the contestants and Miss Barbara Ellzey, as a result of my attendance, I was able to meet some inspiring individuals in the industry that I will remeber forever and hopefully even get a chance to work with in the future. These including, but not limited to, the former Miss Volutptuous Diva USA, Miss Illinois Petite, and Miss Illinois USA Universal. Themselves and the organizations in which they represent are moving. 

Needless to say, I had a phenomenal time, along with Nikhaule and I feel honored to say that I was a part of it. Share the message and spread the word. Check out the links below and enjoy the images!

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
