Single Saved and Social: Conversations in the City (Brunch Edition)

All signs pointed to Baltimore as Jennifer Trotter and Cheston Green hosted their second Single Saved and Social event. But this time... we had brunch! I had the pleasure of once again serving as the media correspondent for this culture-changing movement.

The topics for the day centered around the Hill Harper book, The Conversation: How Men and Women Can Build Loving, Trusting Relationships. The discussion was dynamic as both men and women pitched in to share their opinions and refutations related to Christian dating in today's society. 

Who wouldn't want to have a dope chat over good food?!

College Day at Ark of Safety Christian Church

The awesome panel! 

The awesome panel! 

It brought me great pleasure to be invited to share wisdom with middle and high school students who are interested in attending college. My fellow panelists and I shared the good, the bad, and the not so wonderful realities that come with that chapter of life. I find it important to pay it forward in sharing insight so that the next generation can be best prepared for the future. 

More than anything, I want to see others succeed and make the right choices. 

And lastly... go Terps!

Diversity in Media Panel

Diversity in the media is often a double-edged sword. While we're beginning to see more people of color representing on radio and television, there is still much progress to make. I and two of my colleagues sat on a panel to discuss the state of diversity in the media. We touched on topics from how we are portrayed in the media as people of color to how we are able to create our own narratives. 

It was a fruitful discussion on a topic that should indeed be discussed more on a larger scale. 

Special thanks to the Beta Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc, for the invitation! 

Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily

How cool was this?! On June 3, my co-host and I represented The Remedy Podcast at Cover Talk with Claire Sulmers event hosted by WOE Magazine. Claire was their spring/summer '17 cover star.

 This event was lavish and quite phenomenal. Held (literally) in the shoe department of Lord & Taylor in Friendship Heights, D.C., this event brought to us a fashion show and inspiring panel conversation with Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily and Ayo Thomas of WOE Magazine.

 It goes without saying that Claire is indeed an amazing person. During her meet-and-greet, she took her time to speak with every single person who came to see her. Not to mention, she had a photoshoot taking place very shortly after. We don’t see that often with notable figures. Her humility and grace was so contagious that it brought me great comfort to stand next to her while recording this short clip.

 We were fortunate enough to interview her for our show and it was a great one! Check it out here.

Single Saved and Social: Conversations in The City

What an awesome event this was! Jennifer Trotter and Cheston Greene recently started a movement that will soon grow to exponential levels. Single Saved and Social is a network of Christian singles who come to together simply to talk.

In the Christian world, it can be awkward for men and women to come together casually in a social setting because of many “rules” and “myths” surrounding the context of dating.

Conversations in the City was an event that broke down that wall and allowed young adults to hear from dynamic Christians about their views on dating and how we can relate to one another as believers.
