Hi, this week’s Blonde Intelligence Blog is on female Hip Hop Artist, Bad Azz Becky. I first saw Becky a few years ago on Facebook doing a Monica “So Gone” challenge. I thought by far that Becky’s challenge was one of the best. She has a beautiful singing voice and a strong lyricist.
As an artist it is important to have a signature style and sound that sets you apart from other artists. Lauryn Hill comes to mind, in respect to having a powerful rap voice and an angelic singing voice. After writing the blog on some of the “So Gone” challenges, I observed some of their personal projects. I think Jay Z is resurrecting the element of truth in Hip Hop as do Bad Azz Becky in her lyrics. Who is she? I think she best introduces herself with her single, My Story. This song gives some synapses of her early struggles in life; child abuse, loss of a parent, domestic abuse, and her relationship with God.
I can see Becky as a spokesperson for young women/girls empowerment due to her style and the truthfulness in her lyrics. Becky’s way of sharing her experiences through music is an attribute of a true artist.

Hello everyone. This week’s blog is about criticism. According to Merriam Dictionary the act of criticizing involves observing unfavorably. I taught a class that teaches criticism in negative and confrontation is positive. The reasoning is criticism focuses on the negative that confrontation is positive and promotes clear understanding between two parties. According to Business Dictionary, constructive criticism usually ends with suggestions of positive change. Yourdictionary.com describes another type of criticism, destructive criticism. Destructive criticism is described as criticism performed with the intent to harm someone, derogate one's creation, prestige, reputation and/or self-esteem.
So, if a professional provide criticism how do you take it? How do you determine what type of criticism is being provided? If you are a professional how do you give criticism? How do professionals handle the confrontation process of their criticism? Just food for thought, be conscious as a professional between constructive criticism and destructive criticism because it matters in the confrontation process.

This week’s blog is on a very phenomenal woman, Ms. Kimberly White. She is an artist, and educator, and a mentor. I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. White on last week after viewing a documentary on her that she co-created. Kimberly shared her emotional scars and journey of being in an unhealthy relationship that lead to depression. She shared her experiences and physical scars of becoming overweight and developing health problems, which added to her emotional trauma. Kimberly also shared her spiritual journey and how her support circle was important on her journey. Her circle includes both her mother and father, step-mother, her pastor and his family, and special family and friends.
On this journey Kimberly temporarily lost her mobility and ability to care for herself leaving her with a life changing decision to make. She had to decide to have gastric bypass surgery in which part of her stomach was to be cut out. She had to weigh the safety risks against her life. She stated that the process in her decision-making process involved heavy input from her support circle, the people whom she knew loved her.
For as long as I can remember Kimberly had a love for drawing and art as a whole. Kimberly used art to positively channel her energy. Many people internalize their struggle and develop destructive behaviors towards themselves and others. This is not the case for Ms. Kimberly M. White!!!! She externalized her struggle to achieve positive outcomes through art and shares her triumph with anyone who needs her. She has always had a warm spirit and a soft heart. I label her a phenomenal woman because through all that she has been through she still has joy and spreads her light. #Facts. Maya Angelou wrote in her poem, Phenomenal Woman, “Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies”. Phenomenal Woman is about a self-confident woman and expresses it to the world with class, style, and grace just as Kimberly. Kimberly's secret lies in her soul. She is extraordinary and a remarkable woman because her focus is to help others despite her own trials with life. In her own words she states, “You never know what a person is going through and I may be the encouragement that they needed for that day". In my expert opinion that makes Kimberly a phenomenal woman.
Soon Kimberly will debut some of her original art pieces, watch out world!!!! She shared that the counseling she receive at Arkansas Baptist Health was wonderful. Shout out to Arkansas Baptist Health in Little Rock, Arkansas. Please let her story be an inspiration to you 😊.

The Mt. Olive C.O.G.I.C. Refurbishing Our Youth Program has teamed up with youth group, Gloves Not Guns. The collaboration is to help curve underage drinking and encourage positive life choices. The ROY Program (Drinks ? Drugs? Nah!) is currently recruiting participants. . The collaboration between the two organizations focus on character building, youth leadership, parent/child interaction, physical fitness and activity. The event itself took place this past weekend in Pine Bluff, Arkansas at the Merrill Boxing Center. I can see the strength-based component of each program by the large turnout of parental participation. Good job!!! Coach Brewer said he wanted to promote self-discipline, positve self-efficacy, and healthy lifestyle..
If any youth or their parent want to be a participant in ROY contact Lavern McDonald at email@example.com. To participate in Gloves Not Guns please contact Coach Brewer at (870) 329-3875.
