A Purposeful Life


Life is absolutely beautiful. Take a look outside and see how happy everything is around you. The trees sway with the wind no matter how harsh it blows. The birds soar high without fear. You walk through the very atmosphere that provides the air you need to exist. The universe loves you. We are here to share this amazing experience. We are here to enjoy what God has created for us. Your purpose is just, to be. To be happy. To love without fear. To live without regret. Regret is just a shadow of your desire to change the past. If we could change the past, what kind of future would we have? Life is not about knowing what the future holds. Life is about trusting what the future holds. You have to know that no matter what comes your way, you will be okay. What does life mean to…

What Happens If?


Evil, Racist, Chauvinist, and Anit-Jew… the naming calling can go on and on…. For the people who do not agree with Trumps views, you have the right to voice your position it’s called VOTING.  What will make America Great again, is to have leaders who will actually perform their duty to the people, and not use their position to fulfill their own sick agenda. WAKE UP AMERICA! This is not a joke there are thousands and thousands of people throughout the United States who agree with Trumps ideology. He is DEAD serious about what he wants to accomplish. The power is with the people. I challenge you to organize a voter’s registration drive and let America’s voce be heard. Send this message to Trump that we will not go back to the days of SEGREGATION and SLAVERY. We are one nation under God.

Let’s Talk About “BLKOUT II”

I’m sure we all can agree that everyone loves Friday’s. Although, this past Friday many people in the vicinity of the Barclay’s Center were given a greater reason as to why. On Friday February 26th, 2016 the Mindlezz Thoughtz Media and Arts brand hosted an amazing event at a community

center in Brooklyn, New York. The center is located at 501 Carlton Avenue and is open to the youth on Monday’s and Fridays from 6:45pm-9:30pm. One of the main attractions of the Mindlezz Thoughtz brand is their large scale dance showcase events which are held on a monthly basis and vary in theme. Litefeet,which is a style of dance which originated about 10 years ago is what the spectators of these events come out to see.

This previous Friday’s event was titled “BLKOUT” (not a spelling error) which is a successor to an event of the same name held last year February. The objective of the event was to close off Black History month with a positive vibe. These events not only take the youth off of the streets, but they are a display of positive self expression and creativity in its greatest form. The crowd was heavily populated by youthful people ranging from the ages of 14-19 years old. There are many other things that these kids could be doing but instead they invest their time into the support of one another.

I also took the time out to interview some attendants of the event so they could speak for themselves. Alexis Hendricks says it was her first time attending a Mindlezz Thoughtz event and she explained that she’s already anticipating the next one. What drew Alexis in most were the female battle as it was an all around great performance from both battlers. Princess, who in the Litefeet community goes by the name Shorty Q was one of the performers from the night. Princess stated “the battles we’re so good that you didn’t want to tag your eyes off the dance floor while someone was in the circle.” Malik also known as Flight is a well known producer within the Litefeet community said if given one word to describe the event he’d say “packed.” Flight explained that the energy of Mindlezz Thoughtz events is what has him attend each and every event the brand hosts.

Thank you to those who took the time out to read and now here’s one less thing that “you don’t know.”

voices crying out in the wilderness



On March 8, Intnational Women’s Day will be celebrated in various ways to recognize the contributions women have made to society. In the minds of some people, they think wow! “We’ve come a long way, baby” from the days of slavery, suffrage and the feminist movement.  We had Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman elected to the United States Congress, Condoleezza Rice, the first African American woman to serve as Secretary of State, and Sonia Sotomayor, the first Supreme Court Justice of Hispanic heritage. Even though women have made progress, there are still social challenges that women worldwide struggle to overcome, such as the problems associated with forced marriages and the denial for women’s rights to education due to cultural and religious constraints.

Throughout history, women have experienced strict rules that have kept them from moving forward socially, politically and economically.  For instant, the barbaric practice of female circumcision that cripples and kills countless innocent girls. The horror of murdering female babies because in some societies they are perceived as useless and a financial burden. Currently, women continue to endure chauvinism, sexism, verbal, physical and sexual abuse. Women are constantly being reminded that they should be seen and not heard. These narrow-minded beliefs is what motivates women to continue to press on to strive for greatness.
