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.

Th...

How We Met

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.

"You guys have about two hours to film and then I have a date. So, hurry up!"


Monique already knew the...

How We Met

When Shani Curry- St. Vil took the stage, I abducted my neighbor's pen and I pulled my notebook in close.

With every bullet point, I attempted to capture the words that escaped her mouth. 

*waves hand from back pew*

Amen. Amen.

I know that's right.

How We Met

With her fingers locked, knees bent and back straight, she took my foot in her hands and lifted me.

During one of the most challenging times of my life, Brionna Jimerson used her bright eyes, warm smile and inspiring words to stir up a fire inside of me.

When w...

How We Met

Careful not to let the sweet goodness run down my arm, I devoured the popsicle like it was my last meal.

When it was gone, I sat in the corner with my back against the wall and my knees in my arms reminiscing about the good times we shared. It was the best fiv...

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...

How We Met

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...

How We Met

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...

How We Met

Anyone who has ever attended college knows that the experience is 10% what you learn in class and 90% what you learn about yourself.

In 2006, TaiQuay Smith helped me learn a lesson that I was not ready to receive.

We were paired together in ENC 1101. For t...

How We Met

One minute she's soaking up the sun on South Beach and the next she's snapping pictures in Hong Kong.


The minute after that, she's in New Zealand.


Every time I look up, Deidre Mathis is serving up a new episode of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
