Self -Made Success – AMPsConnected


 Last month, I was invited to “Brunch with Inspiring Ladies” and had the opportunity to be featured on the AMPsConnected podcast.

AMPsConnected was started by my friend Lexi  in July of 2015 and her mission is to travel and connect with artists. I honestly wasn’t very familiar with podcasts until she told me about it, but now I am a subscriber!

Lexi enjoys visiting new places and having conversations with interesting people and sees the podcast as a platform for up and coming artists to share their art with others

The term artist covers all different forms of art including : singing, acting, writing, poetry, and giving back to the community by being lovely, educated & talented.

 After having a delicious brunch of comfort foods:  (Mac & Cheese, Veronica’s cheesy grits, biscuits, fruit, shrimp etouffe pie, red beans & rice, salad) and drinks: mimosas and sweet tea, we were ready to record.

Lexi has a beautiful singing and speaking voice. I was nervous about how I would sound, but being in a group helped (there were 8 of us). Once we started talking it was easier to relax, be myself and be more aware of the ladies in the room with me than of Lexi’s iphone recording us.

Each of the ladies in the room has an interesting specialty to share:

Jean – Teaching Sociology, Race & Ethnicity in France

Natasha – Teaching Psychology, Co-organizing Black Professionals group

Brittney – Local news reporting

Aria – Studying as grad student, Organizing poetry slams

Me- Blogging

Veronica – Career Consulting

Ebony – Singing, Being a mom to 3 kids, featured on a previous episode

Nana – Researching nutrition & obesity,  Running

Getting together with friends for good food and conversation is always fun and this was a great way to get to know more about each other’s interests  and to send Lexi off on her next adventure!
