Hey and Welcome to the World of Tay! 

I want to begin by saying thank you to each and every person that helped me turn my visions into reality. Short N Sweet Ent is my personal blog that is comprised of a collection of pictures, interviews, and quotes that highlight my lifestyle, brands that I support, and music that I love. The other day I asked myself when was the last time you did something for yourself that made you happy? No, not the last time I got my hair or nails done or had a girls’ night out but when was the last time I thought about myself as a necessity. Well, I believe this is the time for me to do what I want, to create a space where I can candidly share what I want. I think it’s safe to say that we are all living in unprecedented times and our future has a large amount of uncertainty but what I do know with conviction is that we will preserve even in the face of adversity.

 

Well if you know me, you know that I was born and raised in the Bronx. Being from the Boogie Down, I quickly learned how physically and mentally tough I had to become if I wanted to “make it”. To me, education was my way out and I take pride in my accomplishments. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in African, African American, Diaspora Studies and Sociology from Wheaton College (MA). I then went on to earn my Master’s degree in Childhood Education from Relay Graduate School (NY). Yes, education has been my backbone but if I didn’t apply what I learned in the classroom to the real-life I wouldn’t be where I am now.     

 

When I was young, dance saved my life. I lived for being on the stage and seeing people in the crowd made me hype. During my time in college, I was blessed to have the opportunity to have my first internship at AileyCamp, a program within the Alvin Ailey Arts In Education and Community Programs. There I learned the power of following your dreams and doing what truly makes you happy so it wasn’t a huge surprise when I made a natural transition into music and radio. Later in my career, I became a co-host on an award winning online radio station, Hip Hop Point of View where I had the chance to interview various celebrities, artist, and athletes such as: DJ Enuff, Styles P, Rockwilder, Lea Robinson, Vina Love, Dnay Bisme, and Summer Wayans. I also love being backstage and catching behind the scenes media and have been fortunate to do work with: Summer Stage NYC, Hip-Hop Press Conference, Music College Tour, and Philadelphia’s Cypher Circuit. As I started to grow and learn more about myself, I joined the podcast world and was a co-host for HerView Podcast. Now, I am taking a leap of faith where I can use my voice to control my narrative.   

 

This year, I had a vision for myself and it is to use my voice on my own platform to empower and uplift others to stay in-tune with being the best versions of themselves. It is important for me to let others know that together we are human and we are all a working progress. In my journey, I have made mistakes in my past and will make more mistakes in my future but with every mistake, I learn a lesson. So this new journey of blogging is a risk that I am willing to take and thankful for everyone that’s coming along for the ride with ME!
