Answer: Attending Bennett really helped me become more tolerant when it comes to certain situations I am faced to deal with.
Question: At your website you mentioned how your parents didn’t allow you to watch TV: Did this help or hinder you, and should more people especially in the black community, adopt this practice for their child’s own success?
Answer: Yes more people especially in the black community because it takes away from study time. When you watch too much TV it takes away your ability to think for yourself especially at a young age. You’re so focused on what these characters are doing on these shows every single week you start to become consumed with their roles without even noticing it.
Question: How did Tameka Raymond change your life?

Question: You wanted to be a lawyer and now you’re elsewhere, so what’s your take on focusing on what you want to do for the world rather than what you want to be?
Answer: I realized becoming a lawyer wasn’t what I was passionate about. Beauty and Fashion are my passions so I choose to go in that route without thinking twice about it. It wasn’t an easy choice but I couldn’t be happier with my choice.
