How We Met
The story of my life seems to be a never ending plot twist.
Sometimes I win.
Sometimes I fail.
And, sometimes I'm too confused to make a move so, I just stand there.
No matter the victory and no matter the storm, Cecka Rose Green is there to love me through it.
It was 2010 and Marsha Buchanan and Monique Mitchell were using my house to finish up their documentary, but things went left before the guests ever arrived.

For months, I camped outside his office, sent excessive emails and even followed him to classes that didn’t have my name on the roster.
I needed an internship and Professor Kenneth Jones was the plug.

When most people invite their friends to a restaurant, they expect the usual:
Slide four tables together, drop off 16 cups of water, bring one dessert with 7 spoons and everyone pays for their own meal. Then, peace out.
In 2015, Felecia Williams changed th...

You may not see it in the bounce of her hair, the length of her nails or brand of her bag.
Her queenly contributions cannot be measured by the style of her shoe or size of her bra. She is not defined by labels.
If you boldly look beyond her tie, her vest and th...

Dominique Johnson is a mystery. I've known her nearly three years and I still can't tell you what she does. The one hour we've spent in the same room was eerily similar to an episode of Scandal.
It was late in the night in a city that shall remain namele...
