we are one in spirit
I have fought as a community activist for over 20 years. with my food bank, Curley’s house, I provide food for over 5,000 households per month.
WHERE I COME FROM
I was born and raised in Rocky Mount, N.C. I have 3 sisters and 4 brothers. After I graduated from Rocky Mount Senior High, I left home and moved to Miami in 1984. I later attended Wilford Beauty Academy for Cosmetology. After graduating from Wilford Beauty Academy in 1985, I met my mentor Cuzzie “Curley” King and began working at Curley’s Beauty Salon at the age of 19. When “Curley” passed in 1998 I continued operating the business as the owner and also started Curley’s House as a tribute to her legacy. I then attended Miami Dade Community College to study Real Estate Law and Business Administration. I am also an ordained African Queen Mother, crowned African Queen by the Motherhood. I personally funded Curley’s House myself for the first 4 years with no outside help.
