I’d been on set all day for a commercial shoot. I’d planned to attend the Janelle Monae concert for Social Media Week at Club Nokia. I had my tickets, but didn’t think I would make it because of work. I was able to get off in time, but my day went to crap and I wasn’t going to go.
I discovered one of my fav models, Nikia Phoenix would be there, so I talked myself out of a slump. I had my ticket, so I asked her to hang with me since my brother wasn’t able to attend. I was Mrs Solo Dolo. She was totally down. I rushed over and had the time of my life. I’m so glad I didn’t allow my circumstance to ruin my opportunity. I planned to go in my apartment and try to sleep away the evening. had I done that, I would have missed A. An amazing concert and B. a chance to hang out with an amazing person.
I had an amazing time, she was so welcoming to me and as you can see, she’s radiant. I don’t know how to describe it; she’s one of those people that brightens up a room and I definitely needed that energy in that moment.
