The Fashion Arts of Humanity Fete Awards!

Hi guys!

Thanks again for reading! I hope you all are doing well:) Today, it is my absolute pleasure to inform you about a very important cause that I support. This fall I had the honor of attending the televised Fashion Arts of Humanity Fete Awards as media. I must say that my experience was grand. Everything was well worth the commute. So, a huge thank you to the Executive Director, Renita Garrett and all of her staff!

You would think that my favorite part of the event would be the fact that I was gifted a $50 gift card that I thoroughly enjoyed. However, my favorite part was interracting with so many awesome talents. I got a chance to meet a phenomenal photographer who was nice enough to snap some shots of me. I got to meet a fierce fashion model, Deandrea Brown, who really touched my heart with her beauty both inside and out. And, I even got to briefly chat with the lead singer of the rock hard performance band, The Fox and The Hounds. You will be seeing them featured on the blog as Fresh Faces soon enough because they were amazing ;) This, along with meeting such nice staff made me feel so welcome and I am grateful that I had this experience. I hope to be able to come back next time!

Here's a little more information about Miss Renita Garrett and the FAHF Awards:

" Fashion and Arts Humanity Fete ( FAHF)  is an annual live event production that honors humanitarian achievements in the fashion and arts industries. FAHF honors non-profits, individuals, and  businesses that use the arts to advance human welfare.  This awards show is infused with arts entertainment, performances, and special guest appearances.  FAHF wants these humanitarians to know that their work is not unnoticed and appreciated by even those who may not benefit directly from their service. We are all one; one good deed helps all. Additionally, this awards show provides encouragement and motivation for others to become volunteers and/or humanitarians. "

"Renita Manley-Garrett earned her BA in English from Northern Illinois University and her MPA from Governors State University. She has worked as a Life Coach for the formerly incarcerated, an English teacher, and a professional image/style consultant. In 2010, Renita created what is now The FAHF Awards and in 2013 used its successful platform to found The Arts of Humanity, a 501(c)3 dedicated to creative humanitarians. Both 2014 and 2015 productions of FAHF sold out and currently, the production is being developed for nationwide broadcasting. Renita’s successful production of The FAHF Awards has earned her a feature on, an interview on the Ernest Fenton radio show, and lead to the creation of a new web series, The Arts of HumaniTEA. In 2014, ComEd awarded Renita with a Neighborhood Hero award for her works with The Arts of Humanity. Renita is also the Chicago Correspondent for, the web’s number one source for celebrity charity news where she’s interviewed Ta’Rhonda Jones from Fox’s Empire and Clay Aikin among others."

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
