I am from songs and music that "Makes me wanna holla and throw up both my hands," dance like "I Got Ants in My Pants," feel like I could fall in love "Always & Forever" I don't want a "Trouble Man" but a "Superman"… I am from "Cooley High"… I am “Just Right,” and I am “The Best Holiday”. . . I am from Cali, southwest side of LA, home of Leimert Park where reflections of my culture are displayed. . . I am from a long line of straightforward forward thinking sistas, and too many kinfolk to count. . . I am dusted with the dialect of the South, a bit of attitude from the West, and drenched in a style called “ME”. . . I am from great joke tellers and BEWARE - my laugh tends to be contagious sometimes I laugh so hard my eyes fill with tears! . . . I believe that what goes around comes around, so treat others as you wish to be treated. . . I am from hope, dreams, and the belief that I CAN instead of “cannot”. . . I am from GOD!
