I began meditating everyday as a way to cope with my stress. The positive shift I felt was profound. My meditation practice led to a series of inspiring life achievements. I became a reiki master, meditation teacher, energy, crystal, and sound healer. I also started to hold full moon beach events, and built a community of healers dubbed as the “vibe tribe”. We have now expanded our events to all different venues around south FL. Read more>>


I’m from Riviera Beach, FL. Born in January. Raised by a single mother along with a younger brother. I also have a half-sister who’s older and lives in Detroit. I grew up without a consistent father figure in my life so I played sports growing up and my coaches always became my father figures. Because of this, I developed a sense of responsibility to help young guys who grew up similarly to the way I did. Read more>>

I was born on Valentine’s Day in 1971. But, instead of celebrating my birthday with my family on Valentine’s Day, 2018, I was grieving with parents who lived less than 20 miles from my house. You see, that was the day that a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida, killing 17 students and staff members and injuring dozens of others. I will never forget the fear that was in my daughter’s eyes, as we watched the horror unfold on the television. Read more>>


I started posting frequently, getting more views, and supporting other YouTubers by collaborating. When I turned 16, I simply wanted to become an influencer and a businesswoman. I wanted to prove that teens my age and possibly younger can do anything adults can do. Which is why I started a clothing line called OS Styles and it stands for “Our Society’s Styles”. Read more>>
