Tell us a little about your family.
I have a family of four. The boss lady is Tiffany – enough said. My beautiful, energetic, busy, talented, doesn’t like to sleep at night daughter is Prayse. And the latest addition to our clique is Xavier Ray (X-ray). He’s a blue-eyed, fair skinned gentleman who’s on a mission when he’s placed in his bouncy seat.
What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
My turning point was the day my mother (Lola Faye) reminded me that she’s the boss after I started to become popular at my high school. I became arrogant and disrespectful due to my newfound status amongst other things. I tried to address her with the terrible curse words “yeah” and “no” instead of “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am.” Shortly after I remember the winds came and the room fell dark. I woke up two years ago, running a business, family of 4, and the polite and respectful words “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am” carved in my spirit.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
I like to hunt! Yes, I really like to go hunting for turkey, pheasant, or anything that’s legal to shoot at. I grew up in Texarkana Arkansas where my family fished just about every Saturday. I miss those days of waking up early to travel to the destination, listening to my uncles whispering jokes to one another while setting the lines. They have great patience, character and high spirits. I could learn more from them.
What are you the most proud of?
Graduating college. I was the first person in my entire family to graduate college. I felt more compelled to obtain a degree than to attend the many division 1 schools who offered me a scholarship to play collegiate sports. Since graduating, six of my relatives have completed college. I feel most proud of doing what was on my heart and blazing the trail and set the precedent for my family.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
