One of my favorite initiatives to date! These beautiful women are grinding it out being the best mothers that can be, and in most cases doing it alone! Purchasing school pictures can be tough let alone doing a whole photo shoot. So, @believinginforever helped organize a FREE photo shoot for the Mothers and their sons so they could have keepsakes that will last forever. Shouts to photographers Jeff Botts, Shuling Fister, Earl James, Randall Routt, Mark D McKinley, Femi Oyeniran, Anna Poteet, Audrey Wagner, and Nacy Kowalski for taking the time out and capturing the essence and beauty of the bond these mothers and sons share! Can’t wait to send mothers all of their pictures this week!!!!
My daughter @jai_spaul at the intermission of her Miss Kentucky OutstandingTeen Pageant today.
I got a chance to speak to a few classes on Career Day at Simpsonville Elementary School about Community Development and Hip Hop! I was surprised a couple of weeks ago with some letters from some of the students! Perfect timing because my dad had just passed... The awards and stuff are cool, but it’s stuff like this that inspires me to keep going! All I ever wanted to do whether through sports, music, events, or community work was to make a positive IMPACT! #BelievingInForever
I took advantage of being on ABC 36 today (shouts to them for always supporting our efforts through Believing In Forever Inc.) to add on to my ever growing photo hashtag, The #IdiosoChronicles... One of the better series of photobombs that you will see!! Today was subtle yet poignant... I had to get my boy Troy!!!
As usual, Poetry In Motion Youth gave me life today! Expressive art helps our young people build confidence, cultivate their voices, and most importantly EXPRESS themselves so that built up emotion doesn’t lead them down negative paths! Can’t wait until next month!!! #BelievingInForever
