Beginning her journey as an entertainer She would sing from a child to a young adult from church, in front of ARs, even on subway trains, and downtown. Seeing how many people supported her led her to turn to music as a serious career. She believes singing is a God-given gift and one of her greatest passions. Becoming an R&B Recording artist, she gained a lot of major industry opportunities from singing and modeling. She met a lot of people that would lead to her having access the professional knowledge that she has about the music industry, artist development, marketing & so much more. During this time, she met her first mentor who worked for Microsoft & Google at different times while mentoring her. He was an expert at branding, naturally, she approached him in the hopes that he would brand her career. Instead, he had a different plan that was for her learn how to brand. Giving her the “programs” to do so. At this time, it was the beginning of her learning how to operate as an entrepreneur (outside of the music industry). After about a few months of studying various designs systems, she didn’t just brand herself as an artist. But branded other businesses and business owners around her this started with some of her closest friends gaining experience & creating portfolio. Going back to her mentor showing promise and progress he gave her the remaining tools of contracts to use & how to protect herself when doing business. He was beyond proud and told her “You are ready to begin your own company.”

All of this experience birthed her first company “Royalty Designs Pro” which specializes in the industry of visual communications in the areas of Graphic & Web Designs, App Development & Programming, 3D Designs, Motion & Animated Graphics, Photography, Cinematography, Global Marketing, Technology/Robotics & any form of branding presentation for any trade of business and so much more.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It’s has been definitely many challenges as a woman entrepreneur I had to work extra hard to prove in a male-dominated entertainment industry that I am the best at creation, to be taken seriously. I’ve studied for years to know about business branding, development & contracts, especially contracts to protect everything I’ve created. I became an entrepreneur in the first place because my mom was a single parent during my teenage years & I had to help her with taking care of my sister so I wasn’t able to get out and work a 9 to 5. I had no experience in any other fields outside of entertainment. So me studying and getting my mentors changed my life. I had to learn how to make money in a legit way that would also help people to solve a problem.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
What I do is, I am a Celebrity Creative Director & GFX/VFX Senior Designer, Business Coach, Filmmaker, Mdw Ntr (Ancient Egyptian) Translator & Educator, and Author. I specialize in the industry of visual communications from Graphic & Web Designs, App Development & Programming, 3D Designs, Motion & Animated Graphics, Photography/Cinematography & Films, Global Marketing, Technology/Robotics, and overall, any form of branding presentation & market for any trade. I am known for first being a Recording Artist, Entrepreneur & Pageant Queen. I am most proud of my development of other creatives that have turned to have design firms as well helping some business owners to get funding of over 10M dollars. What sets me apart is my story, my focus on producing excellence that shows up in my work & the way I teach people to follow their purpose.

What were you like growing up?
I definitely was always highly creative, a problem solver, giving, and friendly. My interest was mainly in telling a story through creativity, provoking people to feel something that can be life-changing.
