DAY 054 – Be Who You are Created to Be
It becomes increasingly hard to be yourself in a society where every action is under the microscope. While in corporate America, I hid my connection to Atlanta’s hip hop scene for over 10yrs. We organized events, fed the homeless weekly on Atlanta’s classic Auburn Ave, and produced theatrical shows around the city. I learned the hard way that you can’t be so hungry to please the masses that you fail to represent yourself. The skills that I learned as “DeBlak” aka “Black” were what made me such an asset on the job. I understood marketing and branding from a grassroots perspective. I could manage event and resource budgets to assure that projects were done on time and at cost. I have a passion for team building as well as mentoring young talent. I’m thankful to have discovered a path that allows me to be true to who I am while continuing to advance my skills and build the brands that I love. The reward for conforming to what everyone else expects of you, is that everyone likes you except yourself.
