Who are you and what do you stand for?

I am an optimist. I take chances and try to see the good in everything. Whatever the situation may be. We are faced with many challenges and we have to go thru certain things for a reason. Most times people can’t see past what they are faced with and often miss out on the real reason why things happen the way that they do. Those situations build character, mold and strengthen us. I try to find the bright side in it all. I stand for God, positivity, self-love and unity.

Who in your life was the most influential in leading you to become the person you are today?

I’m going to say it’s more than one person. The most influential people in leading me to who I am today are my mom and dad. I say, my, parents because they were able to identify the type of person I would be very early on in my life. As I got older and I started to experience different things and notice my reactions were different then most they helped me understand that I have a gift and I’m different from a lot of people. I have the gift to bring joy, laughter, comfort, genuine friendship to people’s lives and I can talk. I have a larger than life personality that people seem to love. They always told me that no matter how cruel this world gets to never allow it to stop me from being who I am. I have a big heart and I give willingly without any hesitation. I’m a people person and a lot of people are drawn to me for what reason I have no idea lmao I often get judged for being that way and people tell me that I need to change.

“My parents continuously remind me that I was made this way for a reason and I should embrace it. That doesn’t mean be oblivious to the obvious but it means don’t be afraid to be Lilz.

Describe your personal style.

Now it’s hard to describe my personal style. I don’t just stick to one thing. One day I may want to be chic or tomboy or super girly. Some days I want to be a bum but overall I would say my personal style is anything that’s comfortable and looks good. I’m a thickums so most of the time I just try to find stuff that goes over my boobs and over my butt lol.

Who or what inspires/motivates you?

The person who inspires/motivates me is Angie Martinez. I say her because I’ve followed her career since I was old enough to know what radio was. I remember being excited about listening to her on the way home from school. She has this voice that always drew me in and caused me to be attentive to the things she had to say. I could feel her personality though the radio and I didn’t need to see her. Her interviews are phenomenal. She asked the questions that a lot of celebs and artists didn’t want to answer if being asked by someone else. Angie Martinez wasn’t afraid to go there but was still respectful. Like myself she’s from the inner city and people do not expect you to make it. People just expect you to become another statistic. People automatically count you out because of where you’re from. She fought for what she wanted and worked hard despite the obstacles she was faced with. That inspires me to keep going to get to the next level and get to where I want to be.

“Being a woman is a challenge within itself but being an African American or Hispanic woman is a challenge that’s on a whole ‘nother level. She inspires me to be proud of who I am and where I came from.

What is your morning/night routine?

My morning routine consists of hitting the snooze button on my alarm a million times before actually waking up for work lol my morning is pretty corny. I get ready for work, run out the door because 9 times out of 10 I’m running late . Once I get in the car I start my snapchat concert. Before I go into work I always pray. Prayer is what keeps me sane and gets me through the day . I have to talk to God because if not I go 0 to 100 real quick lol My night routine includes another snapchat concert, cooking and watching TV until I pass out. Now that’s just Monday through Thursday once Friday comes it’s lit!

If you came home one day and your living room is filled from floor to ceiling with pineapples what would you do?

First of all how and why is my living room filled with pineapples?

I would cut those babies open and start making a whole bunch of stuff lol I would make cocktails, cook with them , and I would tell my friends to come over to join me.

Who are the top 3 people you follow on social media and why?

The top 3 people I follow on Instagram are Chris Brown, Chris Brown, and Chris Brown. First of all, I am team Breezy for life! Chris Brown is bae lol I’ve been rocking with him since 05’. We are the same age and outside of his music I am absolutely in love with who he is as a person. We have very similar lives except I’m not a millionaire and I never been locked up lol but relationship wise and certain life choices it’s like he lived out my life in the public and I relate to that so much. I can appreciate how open he is with his life and how he isn’t afraid to say that he made a lot of mistakes. Being a fan of Chris Brown isn’t easy it’s a constant debate and I have to deal with constant slander but I stand up for him because I see myself in him, a lot of mistakes he’s made I’ve made them too. Just like him, I’m learning and I’m trying to get it right. Not to mention he’s fine as hell lol And he loves his fans so much he is always giving us new music and always trying to interact with us as much as he can he’s just awesome.

How do you maintain work/life balance?

It is very hard to maintain work and life. It’s been about a year now that I’ve been diagnosed with having anxiety. Sometimes life is too much. I take on a lot at one time and I often do forget that I have to take care of myself in the midst of taking care of anyone else. Work is stressful because the amount of disrespect that I have to encounter on a daily basis from customers. Although I’m just talking to them over the phone it’s extremely draining having to be called out of your name every two hours and being belittled. I try my absolute best not take that back home with me because my apartment is my sanctuary. No negative energy is allowed but once I get home I’m pooped .I do my best to try to have a life outside of work and my show. I try to make sure that I live.

What are some of the causes you stand for?

I stand for women empowerment, unity, and peace but the biggest cause I stand for is women empowerment and especially in the black community. Women need to come together to support one another. As a woman you should love your sister because at the end of the day we need each other. Being a woman is hard. It’s so disappointing to see women continuously belittle each other, talk about each other and disrespect each other. Women don’t really understand how powerful we can be as a unit.

“We have the capability to take over the world! Uplift your sister instead of putting her down. If you have the knowledge that she doesn’t have TEACH HER!

Don’t hold out on valuable information and then turn around and judge her because she doesn’t know.

Tell us about an embarrassing moment?

OMG I have too many embarrassing moments to just pick one. Ok but a really embarrassing moment that I can recall is in first grade for Halloween I wore a cheerleading costume for this kid named Tony that I had a major crush on. So I wore the costume and he didn’t even notice me. I was super crushed!!! Lol

What is your favorite store to shop at and why?

Right now my favorite store to shop at is H&M. Mainly because they carry sizes 12 & and 14 lmao (told y’all I was a thickums ) but seriously I love their clothes. My friends always tell me they never seem to find the good stuff in there but I always do mainly because I’m always on the website lol.
