Community Culture Life Memoir New Orleans

I am New Orleans

NOLA Chic is a Culture Ambassador for New Orleans, Top New Orleans Blogger & claiming the crown of New Orleans Urban Queen 👑 How can I do that, why do I figure I’m worthy, who do I think I am???? Please read my #blog and check out my pedometer, Babe.

I puts in #footwerk, community werk and business werk 👣🚵‍♀️🤸🏿‍♀️🎥🎬📸 But seriously I rep for my city ⚜⚜⚜ My voice, my platform, my life is proof that the powers that be, that made it so hard for us to see beyond the courtyard, had us scared to go to Jefferson Parish, made it hard for our parents to keep the lights on without leaving us at home alone.

I’m here to not only show, but prove that we are New Orleans & the Essence Festival turnout is proof that we can pack Bourbon St without incident, its proof that we have the dollars to open doors.

I want to be a vessel of many others that will show just how deep the culture, the blood, sweat and tears that makes New Orleans what it is, to show them that New Orleans belongs to us.

Crime is not a problem in New Orleans, because of the color of our skin, crime exist where there is an affliction of poverty, a wound, which can be healed if the powers that be are fair to us.

It felt good to be in the Ritz Carlton full of my #people, people who spent thousands to come experience my #culture, the culture my #ancestors paid a painful price for, but I got angry when I remembered that my man opening the door for me makes $8/hr & the hotel is $700+/night, #Airbnb has pushed my #family out the city, there’s a huge problem called tent city where they happily build luxury condos.

So, yes I have to find me a crown, get me a scepter with a fleur de lis on the end and lay claim on my city, because my family worked to hard for me to just hand it over.

My goal is to show all of New Orleans, my New Orleans & that can vary from day to day. It will not always be fun, fancy and free, because we have some real issues to address. So, if you would please jump on my bandwagon & let me show you my NOLA.

I need you. ⚜

We deserve to reap the harvest of tourism industry too, we work it, we are the hospitality Ambassadors of New Orleans and we get no credit. ⚜

This is not just a black issues here, there are poor white people and just people period who are living under t the $5k shoes on the powers that be…
