Pretty Little Liars:The Perfectionists TV Premiere (Slight Spoilers!)


Hi guys!

Thanks for reading and I hope that you're all doing well. I am reporting to you all about the amazing experience that I was blessed to have, attending the exclusive Chicago Premiere Screening for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists! The event was a collaboration between Freeform and Refinery29. 


Where do I even begin? I had such a great time with my play sister, Lovely Arielle, that I am almost lost for words. Let's start at the beginning. From the moment we walked in, were greeted with smiles and impeccable treatment on behalf of the staff. From checking us in and distributing our free merch (Thanks for the cool T-shirts, BTW!) to serving us the free snacks, beverages and getting us seated, they were phenomenal! They deserve a reward.


Moving forward to the actual show. I have quite a few thoughts that I want to cover. First, I thoroughly appreciated the fact that The Perfectionists centers around young adults in college, as opposed to high-schoolers. This was a smart move as most of the fans who've grown to love the original over the years, such as myself, have grown up! I'm 23 and I am glad that the series is featuring people closer to my age that are relatable in the scenarios, pressures, and issues that my age group faces. Second, I've gotta say that I'm loving the relationship dynamics between the main characters and it's very interesting, a nice twist from the original. I think it makes the plotline more interesting knowing that they aren't actually friends, at least not in the beginning, but they're moreso classmates who just are drawn together by a common enemy. Thus, my curiosity was spiked and I'm excited to see how their plotlines play out in future episodes, and how their ties will develop or diminish as the story progresses. Lastly, I want to say that I love that Alison is the central focus of the show, foreshadowing that she is less the villainous, antagonist, or bully in this series and is actually a heroine, a savior if you will. It gives her character such a juxtaposed complexity that I'm really feeling. It's great character development and maturation from the original. As quoted in the premiere episode, she went from "Mean Girl to Mentor."

I feel that this is a much better spinoff to the original series compared to "Ravenswood." And, I feel that many people would agree. Caleb, while being an awesome supporting character and very engaging love interest for Hanna (and Spencer), he was not a strong enough leader to drive viewers to a new series that had no other characters from the original. However, with Alison and Mona, I feel they together have the power to make this series EXPLODE just like the original! Also, I must add that Mona definitely makes her comeback in such an interesting fashion for the first episode. Like, didn't you just have people imprisoned in your basement at the series finale of "Pretty Little Liars?" The casual transitions from bullying victim to undercover bully to Liars' ally to antihero to mysterious HR employee at an eerie university that's hours from Rosewood that Alison just so happens to apply to is INSANE. But, I'm here for it!

Honestly, as someone who's been to many TV Premieres and Movie Premieres at a variety of theatres, I can say that this one was probably the best! I am very excited for more episodes and seeing where this will lead! In short, it's a PERFECT SCORE from me :) Thank you again to Refinery29 and Freeform, I hope to have the privilege of going to more of your events.

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
