Hey New World,
Happy 4th of July!
I am amazed at how well this Saturday posting is working for me. I am able to come up with a topic and freely write on it during the week. I totally love this.
So, you may ask, any events on the calendar?
Starting in August, I will be working with stylist Khalilah Neals, on building our ports. I know this will be extremely cool move for both of us. I believe the prior post will give a better description on what my feelings are on collabing. I just put in for my Press Pass for Latin Fashion Week, for both New York and Washington D.C. I am hoping this goes through. Next month, in July, I will be registering for the Komen Race for the Cure, in NYC. I believe this will be coinciding with Latin Fashion Week, NYC. I am not sure if I want to do DC Fashion Week, this year. I have done DC Fashion Week, before, and I heard that the creator of DC Fashion Week, Mr. Ean Williams, has a line out, called “Magnum”. I believe it is a men’s underwear line. Not totally sure, but none the less, should be interesting line. So, the debate still rages on about that.
The Sasha Bruce Teen Day Party.
So, okay, I want to start off with a little background into the organization. The Sasha Bruce Youthwork Prevention, Outreach, Wellness, Education and Risk Reduction (P.O.W.E.R.) Program launched an HIV testing social media campaign, over the weekend (#Never2Early). The founder of the organization, Debra Shore, started the organization in 1974 to help out runaway and homeless teens. Two years later, the organization gained the recognition of Evangeline Bruce, Ambassador David Bruce wife, following the tragic death of their daughter, Sasha. Mrs. Bruce donated the money to the organization in her daughter’s memory.
The party was held at LIV Nightclub, on 11th and U Streets’ in NW. I have passed by this club, several times, and never realized it was a club. The spot actually reminds me of when I used to club, at the spots I used to frequent. There were several media outlets, in attendance, including the Washington Informer and WPGC radio. I believe the host, for the event, was Mr. Redz from WPGC. Now, I’m not even going to front. It’s been a while since I listened to the radio. The last host I remember vividly was Donnie Simpson and EZ Street.
DJ Fat Cat, was vicious with mixing. Then, a dance crew came in and gave up some vicious moves. One guy, popped his shoulder out of wack, on beat. I thought it was very different, and cool, at the same time.
Now, if you follow me on my Facebook page, you will hear me demean today’s teens. Mainly because of the post I have seen online, or what I have seen, on the Metro in DC. I’m not even gonna front on half of the situations I have witnessed. I am not trying to make it sound freakin’ horrible, but there are some really ignorant situations I have seen, just for attention. This event was a perfect opportunity for teens to be viewed in a more responsible light. So, with that being said, I applaud the teens that showed up to show that they care about their lives. It was a beautiful event with a decent turn out.
