I first began competing in pageants almost eight years ago… I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect. In my very first pageant, I represented Fort Bend County at a state level pageant. It was incredible to learn so much about myself and discover strengths I didn’t know I had. I became physically active with pageants, raised funds, and learned how to conduct myself professionally when interacting with community and businesses. Read more>>

The idea behind creating bow ties was born out of a challenge. It was during my sophomore year of college where my best friend wanted a cheetah print bow tie.

I started Blessed to Be a Blessing in 2012 as a way to honor and celebrate my birthday. I wanted to celebrate by doing something meaningful. During this time, I was in school working on my MBA from Texas Woman’s University and on my way home from school each day, I would see homeless people gathered at a small park. I thought to myself that I could use my birthday as an opportunity to serve those less fortunate. I spoke to my husband and daughter about the idea of having a “party in the park” for my birthday, and they were on board with it. Read more>>

Sucker Punch Custom Sweets & Novelties was born shortly after my sister’s baby shower. During the party and weeks after, everyone continued to ask me how much I charged for a sweet table decor, etc. At first, I would reply “Oh no, that was just for my sister.

Going through a period of time where I started to evaluate my life and friends. Didn’t’ quite know the direction but I knew I wanted to create something that would outlive my legacy and change the world. Most importantly wanted to live out my passion and seek out my greatness for the greater good. It all started my junior year in college. Second semester April 2017, at UTSA, I knew I had the God’s gift of leadership and a powerful voice but quite didn’t know how to use it! Parents always told me “son you have a voice, just learn how to use it” my first thought was to become a rapper. Read more>>

I couldn’t believe it… I was getting paid for something that I loved doing! My Pastor (Rondy Long) and husband (Brian Wilkins) saw my passion and gave me the courage to turn my hobby into a business.
