Have you ever met someone and knew almost immediately that they were a world changer, and a force that wouldn’t let anyone or anything stand in their way? I felt this way upon my first encounter with Melinda Watts, the founder of G.L.A.M. Camp for Girls. I saw a model call for a photoshoot that was associated with this ministry and the Lord immediately said to submit my photo to them. It’s even interesting how that moment came to be because it was after browsing a few Instagram profiles that led me to media content creator Dr. Peace Amadi who was creative directing the photoshoot along with her friend and fashion blogger Seyi Famuyiwa. I have a special place in my heart for other women God leads to start ministries that focus on building up young ladies because I know they truly understand my calling to do the same. I could go on and on about Melinda, but I’d rather you see for yourself. Browse the website and check G.L.A.M. Camp out on their Instagram to see what they’re up to now.

I attended a few events at the Oh, Hello Friend shop before meeting its owner Danni for the first time. Once I laid eyes on her humble and beaming smile, I couldn’t help but hug her as if we had known each other since childhood. Her store has a feeling of home as she welcomes you in with messages of “You are loved” on display throughout the space. In the short time since her brand was founded, God has move her into directions she never dreamed, and is constantly expanding her vision for it. I can’t even imagine where her business is headed, but I’m glad to be along for the ride. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Oh, Hello Friend”

Acting Like a Christian

This article was originally written for Our Witness, a website that highlights personal testimonies of Christians all over the world. Since this is my first post for L’amour in Christ, I thought I should let you in on who I am as an artist and a child of God. Thank you for reading!

Being beautiful on the outside isn’t something I’m always striving to be, but knowing that I’m exuding beauty from within is very important to me. Unfortunately, it’s taken me a while to know who I truly am and to accept that person. Before my relationship with God, I struggled to feel beautiful and that’s one of the reasons my mom enrolled me in modeling classes when I was 15 years young. I didn’t know this at the time, but it was her way of boosting my self esteem and helping me to accept my femininity.

I used to think anything form-fitting was sexual, and I didn’t want the wrong kind of attention coming my way. After learning that how I carried myself spoke more about me than what I was wearing, I felt comfortable looking like a girl. These affirmations and the newfound love for myself helped kick start my modeling and acting career. Continue reading “Acting Like a Christian”
