My Favorite African Models

I like to get motivation from models. Often times I look at their pictures to help me continue my journey to achieve my beauty and fitness goals. Looking at what could potentially be my end result really helps me eat healthier and workout. Of the many models that I aspire to, three happen to be African born. Here is my list of top African models!

1. Fatima Said

Whew! I have loved this lady ever since I first saw her on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 10. I always thought she was one of the prettiest girls on the show of any cycle. She is Somali-American and currently with IMG Models. She is 30 years old now and still extremely gorgeous. Actually she doesn't seem to have changed much since she was on the TV show. Simply FLAWLESS! Keep rocking girl.

2. Leila Lopes
Hello Miss Universe! Yes, that's right. Leila was crowned Miss Universe back in 2011. This Angolan hottie is an actress and model. She seems to be enjoying life with her husband, Osi Umenyiora (he's an NFL football player). This beauty will continue to be one of my favorites.

3. Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita. Lupita. Lupita. (sigh) Not only is this lady a classic beauty, but she can dance well and is super smart. She is bi-lingual in Spanish and English and also graduated from the Yale School of Drama. Overall she seems to be a very sweet human being. She is awesome and would be a great person to hang out with. I definitely plan to be as cool as her one day.

Though there are many beautiful models out there, these are three of my favorite African models.

Have a beautiful week!

How to Prepare for the Interview?

An interview can be a nerve wracking experience. What should I wear? What should I say? What questions should I ask? As a Corporate Recruiter and Senior HR Specialist I've seen some of the best and the worst of interviews. From my experience I've found that there are three main areas that people should focus on when preparing for an exceptiona interviewing experience.

1. Research

Always start any job search with research. Once the job interview is landed, this becomes even more important. Read about the company history, culture, recent news and any other insights you can find. You should also review the job description that you've applied to. Be prepared to ask and be asked questions about the company and the job. Next, you'll need to do some research on yourself. Sound a bit strange? Well, I'll explain what I mean by this. Do you know what skills and/or knowledge you will bring to the company? Do you remember the kinds of projects you've taken on in the past fe…

Reviewing 2016 and Planning for 2017

One of my top goals for 2016 was to pay off a sum of student loan debt. I ended up paying off close to $10,000 of debt. This was a great accomplishment, but I still have a long way to go. I am so thankful to Dave Ramsey and his 7 baby steps to financial freedom. The approach he lines out is very easy to follow and more importantly IT ACTUALLY WORKS!

Dave says that in order to pay off debt, we need to assess our current regular income and expenses. Then we should locate where we can increase what we bring in and/or decrease spending. Next, he recommends saving a starter emergency fund in order to ensure that we will not add to our debt if or when a situation arises (this is what he calls Murphy - Murphy's law). Once the emergency fund is built of $1,000, we need to list out all of our debts from smallest to largest amount and begin putting any additional income to the smallest debt. Continuing down the list, we use the same process until the very last debt is paid off. This is call…
