Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) and Women of Wellness, LLC invite you to the Total Woman’s Conferenceon April 9, 2016 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Milford Public Library, 11 SE Front Street, Milford, DE.

Nationally, African American Women have the highest death rates from breast cancer of all of the racial groups, and are 40% more likely to die of breast cancer than white women. Medical research indicates that comorbidities, such as having diabetes in addition to breast cancer, increase the risk of dying from the disease. Studies also show that Black women have a higher incidence of diabetes and other comorbidities such as hypertension that reduce survivorship.
Proper exercise, healthy nutrition habits, and stress management could substantially decrease a woman’s chance of developing comorbidities, including reducing a woman’s chance of developing breast cancer. However, studies show that many women experience a barrier to engaging in stress management and a healthy lifestyle because they do not understand what those terms mean and how to integrate them into their current lives.
Through this free, one day conference, DBCC and Women of Wellness, will teach what it means to lead a healthy lifestyle in a way that is easy to understand and implement, promoting breast health, nutrition, exercise, financial fitness, and stress management.

Meet Kingston Jones, an African American professional who appears to epitomize success, but is weighed down by several secrets. Despite his Ivy League education and workplace accomplishments, he is treated like a common criminal after being stopped by the police for a traffic violation. The event marks a pivotal point from which he is unable to return to his former life. The novel sheds light on someone who shows up one way in public, but is heavily burdened in private.
In 2006 Nahjee took a creative writing course because as a failing student he needed the extra credit to graduate on time. In 2010, after a series of working odd jobs, he changed course to pursue a career as an author. Three years later, his first book went into publication. Seven years later Nahjee has written seven picture books to encourage every child regardless of their age, color, or religion to be comfortable with who they are and gain the confidence to strive for success.
He was host of a daily television show for two years on Main Line Television from 2015 to 2017.
In 2016, Nahjee was presented with the Main Liners Who Give Back Award in recognition of his achievements as a top philanthropist on the Main Line.
Also in 2016 Nahjee founded All Children Equal Success to inspire children to keep from falling behind, pursue their dreams, and motivate them throughout the school year to stay focused on their goals.
