Akande (She who arrives full of determination)

I'm wishing my fotki fam all the happiness your hearts and hands can hold this holiday season. Keep me in prayer ...you already know I'm keeping u.

I have 3 BA's (Theatre, African American Studies and Business) and am working on my Masters on Arts Management. I also (along with two business partners) own my own theater company that is based out of Farifax, VA and Bethesda, MD. When I'm not at work with the theater or in another state/country, I counsel teenage African American girls through a system I call the Pleasure Principle.

The Pleasure Principle is comprised of my book club for women (Beyond Borders), spa getaways and confidence building workshops for teens and women (Sweet Spot Retreat Weekends) and relationship workshops/STD prevention for teenagers (Passion Marks).

Right now I'm dedicated to some "me time" I've taken a break from being on stage...but if you know me, you know I can't stay away too long. My most recent project....tracking my journey (physically, mentally and spiritually).

This fotki account celebrates my hairstory. I hope you enjoy it. I have a form of eczema called Seborrheic Dermatitis (SD). You can find out more regarding my health challenge in my photo albums.

Be blessed...and know that you are highly favored.
