Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young.

Indiana Love Sweeps
Long Beach Step Show




This past weekend there was a whole lot of stepping going on in California. I attended t he 19th Annual Long Beach Step Show. The Pretty Poodle All Star team, representing my lovely sorors of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. took 1st place again for the second year in a row! EEE-YIP!! And a Bay Area team representing Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. took 1st place for the men. Both orgs were founded in Indiana. Congrats to both teams.






Up north in Sacramento the Millerizm Group's 3rd Annual Step Show took place. Special shout out to my sorors from the Bay who took 2nd place. They stepped in the rain. I have a press so I have to give them their props. My name would've been AfRHO if I was performing that day. LOL! They should have won for being the only team to step while it rained.


Hopefully both step shows won't be on the same day next year. I'm just saying....

If you want to get an idea of how the Pretty Poodle Step Team gets down, check out their award-winning performance from last year.
