I’m that Chic who had influences from the women some label Crackheads to Bougie Chic’s, they all instilled in me nuggets of themselves that made me whole. So, when you come across me trying to figure me out, just know I am that Chic you look in the mirror at.

I’m every Chic that was told she wouldn’t make it & did and still climbing to the top. I know what the walk of life that we go through looks and feels like. One minute you up and the next you are down, but we never give up and we keep on pushing thru this life of ours, praying knowing the best is yet to come. I’m here to tell Our Story, but I need You to be a part of it too.
