If you all haven't heard of the movie Secrets of a Housewife...you all are in for a treat! This start studded cast is sure to get you talking about the secrets in your life! The shows Executive Producer, Tressa Azarel was a pleasure to meet and just a sweetheart and genuine. The passion for her movie making is apparent once you meet her. The movie was filmed in the DMV and a lot of the cast is from here or the surrounding areas. Be on the look out for this to come to a theater near you really soon!
In early October, I had the honor of capturing the Ms. Veteran America award celebration. These ladies are amazing and have proudly or are currently serving in the military. These women as part of the competition take on the platform of raising money and awareness for homeless female veterans and their families. For this campaign the women raised $80K towards the initiative and the organization of Final Salute Inc.
This competition is far from a beauty pageant! These ladies not only compete in talent, questions and stage presentation; but they also competed in a push up competition right on the stage in front of the spectators. It was great to see those that dropped cheer on their comrades in this section of the night. From 25 it went to the Top 10 and then the Final 3 and then the final question. Congrats to Captain Molly Mae Porter who was crowned Ms. Veteran America 2016!
An amazing time was had by all that attended the WOE Magazine Launch that happened at the Nordstrom's in Annapolis. Let me begin by saying that it was a first class event and Candice Nicole PR came through on all the details of the event. Ayo and her team was amazing and it was a very uplifting event. The panel gave words of wisdom on daily life as well as starting your business and building your dreams. There was a mini fashion show to showcase the WOE women which has many facets to her life and also makeup staff was on hand to glam up the participants.

In March I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Inaugural Women's Breakfast for the Princes Georges Chamber of Commerce. The women of the chamber really put together a lovely breakfast to celebrate women in the county that contribute and do amazing things. Hosting the event was Shomari Stone of the Channel 4 News. Honorees included the States Attorney General and the Prince Georges Community Colleges President. Amazing speeches with life lessons were shared and there was nothing but love in the room. I can't wait until next year's breakfast and I only see this event growing and being bigger and better.
