i'm energized: by the way Black folks express themselves creatively- be it thru work, words and style
my passion: is to build self-esteem, confidence and empower young girls in every aspect of their lives
i love: independent thinking and non-conformity
i like: good food & drink, natural/loc'd,big,kinky,afro hair, make-up, clunky jewelry, thrifting for funked-out clothes, 'alternative', funk and soul music, chicago-style DEEP HOUSE(my hometown-yay!)
i am fascinated: with vocalist who sing from their gut. back-up singers (and my secret desire to be one)

The video(s) will be about the members of Afropunk. Ill make videos about the Ap ladies and queens, guys, queers, and the members representing Ap.
1. Email me at: email@example.com
2. Send 3 or 4 PICTURES of you striking a pose and being all badass.
3. When you email the pictures put your USER NAME in the SUBJECT BOX.
4. In the MESSAGE BOX put what your GENDER is. 5. In the MESSAGE BOX put if you want to be in the LADIES/QUEENS VIDEO, GUY'S VIDEO, or / and LBGT VIDEO.
The deadline for the pictures is August 20. I most likely will not finish the video until the first week of September. If I have too many pictures to fit into the video I will make another one. So if you don't see your pic in the first vid itll be in the second. The video will be show cased on afropunk's web site sometime in September. The video should be on the front page as a feature.
*Even though the ladies and queens video will be first, guys can still send pictures to my email.
Hope these directions are clear lol and I also hope to hear from you soon! ^.^
