Live Out Loud Charity Ball

Hi guys!

Thanks again for reading. I hope you all are well :) Today, I am coming to you to share a blog post about an amazing, literally life saving event that I was allowed to cover for you guys with my mother as my guest. This cause is very near and dear to my heart and I look forward to working with this organization as long as possible. This was the Live Out Loud Charity Ball and Fashion Show. This was produced by Sherrie Gearheart the Founder of Live Out Loud Charity and the Ms. Illinois America 2018 titleholder Thank you! 

A Little Bit About The Organization: 
Sherrie Gearheart founded Live Out Loud Charity (LOLC) in 2010 after losing her childhood friend to suicide. He was only nineteen years old at the time of his death. Since its inception, LOLC has educated millions of individuals globally on the signs of depression and suicide prevention. Live Out Loud Charity focuses on core character development, anti bullying, and suicide prevention. 

What we experienced at the event: 
We enjoyed a variety of designers and models, alongside performances that were very entertaining. Photos are below. But, the thing that really made this event stand out amongst the countless fashion shows I have attended is the fact that they had a lifesaving cause, suicide prevention, and they took the time to educate the audience on the subject. The main concept was the following: 

Q: Question the person to see if they are suicidal. 
P: Persuade them to choose life. 
R: Refer them to support systems

  • Wafaa Lahlah - Flew In from Paris to present her collection and support, was awarded 2017 International Designer of the Year
  • Mario & Jorge -The Millenial Collection by MJ
  • Meme Rollins- M.H.O.D.
  • Jackson Skyler – Royal Rose Fashion and Embroidary
  • Nuno Martelle -Hekature Designs and creations
  • Sharisa Freeman – Sharisa Couture Designs and Jewelry by: Danaya Designs 4U
  • Abraham Garcia – Moonlight Collection
  • Garciela Liorenta
  • Jynah James – Kiti Kouture
  • Bella Lucci -DaLab 650 E Fashion and Science
  • Natalia Marie- Prana Maker
  • Annette Evans – Shear Gold Fashions
  • Anjana Misra - Flew In from India to present her collection.
These 3 steps come from the QPR Institute's suicide prevention course which Sherrie Gearheart shared at the event along with her personal stories of what to do in a social media cry for help when you can not follow these steps.

We also got a chance to run into Fresh Faces Partner, Miss Jaine Lopez, CEO of Miss Planetary and Golden Essence Models. Love her dearly! We both had such an amazing time and I fully advocate all of my readers to PLEASE check out the organization at the links below, and enjoy the photos provided by Mr. Jim Baranski!

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
