I love life! The essence of being! I am a powerful woman who inspires love, healing and light whenever I go! My lifes journey has been interlaced on a spiritual trek since the age of 5. Sick with chicken pox while the fires of the Watts riot consumed neighboring cities, I lay in a feverish sweat, unable to catch my breath from the diseases attack on my insides and external extremities. In the city of Compton where I was born and raised my mother walked 5 miles to retrieve my medicine determined that her only daughter and 4 sons would make it through to their destiny. She was a strong, educated woman whose shoes I now feel honor bound to fill. I knew even then that I was put here on this earth for a purpose.
I left Compton at age 18 to serve my country in the Unites States Air Force as a Jet Engine Mechanic. I worked in airplane hangers at R.A.F. Lakenheath England, and later performed as a USO dancer in 45 countries over a 75 day period bringing smiles while uplifting the morale of our soldiers who bravely put their lives on the line . Back then women soldier's weren't protected and I faced sexual harrassment and an unfortunate rape underneath the umbrella of our United States government. This incident took my power away and after 2 failed marriages of 9 and 28 years - 38 years consecutively, I decided that my platform would be to show the world that women are survivors and conquerors! I want to let the world know that a woman can rise from the ashes at any age, and show her power within and without; let them see our light shine in spite of the challenges that are set before us.
I have four children, an attorney daughter, an active duty special forces now 5 star chef daughter, a son who speaks 5 languages and a youngest son who's an Electrical mechanical engineer. Two of my four children are proud members of the LGBT community and I love and support them all.
I now stand in my power and want to show women from all walks of life that they can too, no matter their background or social economic circumstances.
This is why I want to be a contestant in your pageant.
