Crime fighting in Midtown

Flare sent the signal from Down Under. She was in charge of operating the computers this time, and she didn’t like it one bit. Dazzle, Pao Pao, and Bionica emerged aboveground, on the hunt for one of the most powerful sex trafficking bosses in North America. They’ve been studying his every move since he arrived in New […] Read more…

Lost in Bermuda

Last year was adventurous. I was invited by Bermuda Fashion Festival to participate in their annual week-long fashion festivities this past July, and it was nothing short of amazing.

Dear LX

Lately, I’ve been receiving a lot of emails from young women about career choices. I get to read their dreams, and what they’d like to do.

What does a feminist look like?

Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie posted a photo of Beyonce from the 2014 MTV Video Music Award with the caption: “On Monday morning I woke to images of Beyoncé, striking a dramatic pose – dressed as the world’s most beautiful disco ball – in front of the word “FEMINIST” and felt like an excited kid all […] Read more…
