Hi Alonia! Welcome to The Boss Diary! Before we begin, tell us 3 words that best describe you.
Hey Nkay! Super happy to be a part of this. Okay so three words that describe me: Determined, Ambition, Faith
Tell us what you do professionally.
I am a Professional Blogger. I also professionally do product reviewing for brands, influencing, and sharing my knowledge of fashion, and beauty while being a fashion blogger.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Pray, and make my first cup of coffee. That’s joy right there lol.
To date, what has been the most memorable moment in your blogging career?
My most memorable moment so far in my blogging career is when Kathy Hilton (Paris Hilton’s Mom) Liked my photo on Instagram, read my blog post, and then liked my blogpost as well. Lol, that may seem minor but I love Paris Hilton!
Everyone has a purpose. How would you define your own purpose?
I love this question. This year I’m actually learning that Fashion and Business are a Huge part of my purpose in this world. But I’m also learning that I am a unique fashion blogger and a little different from my age group when it comes to style. Being my true unique self is definitely my purpose.
Who are some of your favorite female creatives or business women that you look up to?
Right now I only have one female creative that I sincerely look up to, her name is Monroe Steele she’s a Fashion Blogger and Youtuber. GREAT content and is very inspiring. She shares good knowledge of a lot of things in the blogging career and fashion in general.
Tell me one thing that most people may not know about you.
One thing that people may not know about me is that I am a daughter of a retired professional boxer ‘Ross Thompson’ my dad. He won the national golden gloves and was a 5x national champion. He also had his first Big Fight at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas! And I was there to watch Lol.
What is the one quote that you live by?
There are so many, but one quote I do love is “She walked with God. That was her game-changing strategy” I saw this quote on Pinterest a few weeks ago and instantly thought ‘Wow this is so true’ I read it every day.
On your bookshelf what will I find…
You will find nothing but motivation, prayer, and fashion books lol! My favorite book right now to read is the battlefield of the mind by Joyce Myers. Very powerful book.
Before you go, what is one piece of advice you would give to women out there who are finding their way and figuring out their own path?
Be your authentic self, have fun finding your way to that path made for you, and always remain professional when need be. Never take no for an answer. There is always another way! I think that’s more the one piece of advice lol but it’s the truth!
