The best part of growing up in Cleveland Heights,Ohio is all the amazingly talented people you meet. From writers,actors,rappers we have so much talented in such a small diverse city. And me being the loving individual,Im going to let you know about all of them...

 10 people to watch out for,that are from Cleveland Heights.

1.   Niesha Davis a writer,and actress currently teaching English in ROK. She has created a web series based loosely on her life,career,and dating abroad. For more information check out her site and intro video here

2.Ski Mask Malley a rapper hailing from the Heights who adds diversity the Cleveland music scene. He has had a few successful mixtapes and his latest video, Apt 5a already has 166,028 views on Trill HD. You can view Apt 5a HERE

3. I have had the pleasure of being in the presence  of rapper-producer, Darren Anthony of the daily and watched his talent grow over the years. Anthony released his first mixtape in 2009, 'The Restaurant'  and I still play it to this day.

4- You may know him as the star of , 'That Guy' , I however know him as high school classmate and class clown, Jeremy McBryde. After relocating to California, he has already been on 4 different series. 'That Guy' just wrapped season 2 and preparing for season 3.

5- One of the Heights finest has lived around the corner from me almost my entire life, Renard better known as Nard Dibi. You can listen to his latest song from upcoming mixtape,  here .Self proclaimed 'underground King' already has a few videos and songs worth listening to.

6-Growing up Jimmy Hu$tle was like a kid brother to me,who knew he was gonna be one of the dopest rappers of the mid-west AND west coast. New song, 'All I know' was released earlier this week and is fire. Listen to 'All I know' and his other songs here

7- As kids,I  thought SoEz would have been a basketball star,not accomplished rapper or producer..... Glad I didn't bet on it,lol. To hear his songs,including his 'Og Bobby Johnson' freestyle click here

8-Singer,Conductor,Composer Adrian Dunn has been touring with one of the hottest tickets to come to Cleveland,Chicago,and NYC, Hopera. A combination of hip-hop and opera created by Dunn. Be sure to get your Hopera tickets HERE

9- Then of course there is Antonine Dunn,an up and coming singer. If nothing else is in those Dunn genes,I know talent is! Such a loving and humble spirit has been seen opening for a few of your favorite r&b singers. For more information on Dunn and his music click HERE

10-Now with one,I'm slightly biased but she is still amazingly talented. Gwen Maul is embodies so much depth and soul in her music,its almost addicting....

Ironically most of the people on this list, are products of the Cleveland Heights School district music program,if this isn't proof that tax dollars are hard at work,well I really don't know what is.

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my sy

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like
