Liebster Award Recipient

I was nominated by Robbie of Brave Turquoise to receive the Liebster award last month, thank you! I haven't participated in one of these things in forever but I'm feeling talkative so here goes. I have to answer the questions she left and share 11 random facts about myself so let's get into it.

1. What’s your #1 fear?  Fear of not being in control (of things in my life). It's like I know better but I still have to remind myself from time to time that just because things don't play out the way I thought them out in my head doesn't mean they won't happen. I have to trust God/the Universe, they know my desires and want what I want more than I do. :-) 
2. What’s the strangest thing you want to do before you die? Hmm, I don't think I have anything strange, per say, that I want to do before I die. I just have A LOT of things I want to do. One big thing I want is my own scholarship fund for students of color to pursue degrees in the arts, the fund would eventually be able to send 1-4 students to a university or college for their art studies all 4 years.
3. What is one song that people would not expect you to know all/most of the words to?  Any song by Rick Ross!  

4. What was your favorite childhood TV show, or book if you didn’t watch TV? One of my favorites was The Muppet Babies because they would use their imagination to go on all kinds of adventures so my sisters and I learned the magic of how to use our own. I also loved Reading Rainbow because I loved reading and the show always shared new books for me to get from the library to read. Favorite books as a kid were hands down the Babysitters' Club series. I had a huge collection, almost every book, and because of them I couldn't wait to be old enough to babysit. Some friends and I even created our own neighborhood babysitters' club when we were old enough to. 
5. If there were no repercussions (loosened curl pattern, strange looks from your boss), what’s one color you would want to dye your hair? I'd be a red head for sure!
And now for 11 random facts about me:

  1. I hate pigeons. They creep me out to the core. I live in a city where there are tons of them almost everywhere. Smart move, Milan.
  2. When I was a kid one of the things I wanted to be when I grew up was a marine biologist. I love dolphins. I also love the stars and wanted to be an astronomer and work for NASA.
  3. When I was about 10 or 11, I got selected from the crowd to pet a dolphin.
  4. I love old Hollywood and vintage black glamour. I love the hair, makeup and classic chic style everyone possessed, they were sharp. Everyone, including the men, looked great rather they had a little or a lot.
  5. Dorothy Dandridge is my favorite actress and favorite black beauty icon.
  6. Selena is one of my favorite singers. I didn't know who she was until after her death and the movie came out.
  7. Sometimes, I sleep with my eyes open. My sister and my father do it sometimes too.
  8. In my middle school and high school years, I practiced Taekwondo and loved it. I went to a tournament and won a silver metal.
  9. I'm a pretty good hula hooper
  10. Though I am very artsy and creative, I can also be very analytical and enjoy reading and talking about personal finance and money.
  11. I was unemployed at one time for almost 2 years. Though it was a roller coaster experience, I was living off of unemployment in one of the most expensive cities in the world and had a blast.
