1.) I was named after my maternal grandmother (Jordan—RiP Grandma Lillie, one year gone this May).
2.) I’ve sung with Bobby McFerrin (with my college choir Kuumba Singers).
3.) I played Carnegie Hall when I was 18 (orchestra/viola).
4.) I started truly writing when I was 12 years old (poetry).
5.) I haven’t been kissed since I was 18 (I’ll be 28 this month).
6.) My favorite part of my body is my eyes (they are brown, but nothing plain about them to me).
7.) My favorite novel I’ve written thus far is Reconstructing Jada Channing, which is, incidentally, the first novel I’ve ever written and my worst reviewed novel on Amazon (#kanyeshrug).
7.) My favorite desserts are cheesecake and my Grandma Katie’s pound cake (RiP, Grandma Katie, 10 years gone this August).
8.) I love the feel of my natural hair against my fingertips, and it’s a quirk I’ve inherited from my mother, apparently (RiP Mama, 19 years gone this November).
9.) My favorite movie ever in life is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (Frank all day; this was also my Grandma Lillie’s least favorite movie because we watched it all the time…back to back…#can’t be tamed).
10.) I have a ride-or-die personality when it comes to friends, and length of time between talking doesn’t negate that.
