How do you define success for yourself?
FS: Walking in your purpose. Making an impact (big or small) and inspiring others to share their story to inspire someone else. It’s a domino effect.
What are two ways you characterize yourself that might seem contradictory? How do these make you who you are?
FS: Introverted and yet, very opinionated. I think and analyze things deeply but may not express it 80% of the time. I think I put those thoughts into my work instead of just talking about it.
What are three influences from your childhood on what you find beautiful today?
- Black women:
I was always surrounded by strong black women role models as a child, specifically my mom, sisters, aunties and cousins,
- Raven Symone - she was doing everything (singing, acting, entrepreneur) and looked like me.
- Whitney Houston & Aaliyah - some favorites as a child (way beyond their times)
- 90s era - natural beauty was such a huge thing and the culture was very different than now.
- Spoken word- always has been my favorite form of inspiration, hearing people’s stories, creativity of delivery, and vulnerability to say what is on their heart. That’s beautiful to me.
How do you keep joy in what you do?
FS: Remember my why/purpose - inspire others and creating spaces for people to flourish and finding ways to be creative. Whenever I’m stressed or unmotivated, I pray and find creative outlets to reset.
What is some of the best advice you received?
FS: Remember your why. Your goals might change, but your purpose doesn’t and share your story, you don’t know who is waiting to hear it.
