Wow, where do I begin? This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity of meeting a woman who has been an inspiration to me, Beyonce! I attended the WACO Wearable Arts Gala in LA.
WACO, which stands for Where Art Can Occur was co-founded by Tina Knowles Lawson and her husband actor Richard Lawson, who was also the evening's hosts. Honorees for the event included Beyoncé and her mother-in-law, Gloria Carter. Solange, Bianca Lawson, Kelly Rowland and La La Anthony served as honorary event chairs for the event.
The night dedicated to giving back included a “WACO to Wakanda” theme where the red carpet was adorned by stunning African inspired looks. It was such a surreal experience meeting Beyonce! I still have butterflies in my stomach being able to attend this event and also provide a donation to sponsor two children. The donation is in support of two underprivileged children to attend the WACO Theater Center for an entire year. A girl under Tina’s Angels mentorship program and one boy under Richard’s Warriors mentorship program. Being able to provide two children with this opportunity is truly a blessing.
I always say that I wasn't given this platform to keep my success and blessings to myself. It was an honor to attend, and even a bigger honor to be able to donate.
