IPTC Handler 2019
Onyx Pearls National Council
having a heart of service, I have dedicated my life to the care/wellbeing of others, and it continues to shape my path on my leather journey. My service has taken me all over the world and given me many opportunities to actively participate in community service on a local and global scale. As a military veteran I learned to be a better leader within healthcare, leather, and vanilla organizations I affiliate with. I strive to live unapologetically as myself by laughing wholeheartedly, giving to others, being quirky, and genuinely caring. I absolutely love learning, experiencing new things, and seeing the heart of people. Yet, I’m very serious when it comes to handling my business and continually standing strong in my convictions.
Having a slave’s heart, I continue to find ways to lend my talents by volunteering in the local and surrounding communities. Having volunteered at conferences such as Leather Leadership Conference (LLC), SELF was a guest judge at the Canadian contest of NCLP(National Capital Leather Pride) in the past my evolution is only beginning.
While serving in the different areas I realized there was a great need for representation of BIPOC closer to home. Recognizing that need with the support of my sisters. Onyx Pearls Deep South was established. I currently serve on the Onyx Pearls National Council as President and proudly serving the Pantheon Small Club of the Year 2019 Deep South Onyx Pearls as President. I’ll continue to give my talents time and passion to the advancement of People of Color and educating healthy self-practices within the BDSM/Leather communities. One of my favorite quotes to live by.
"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything; but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything. I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." Edward Everett hale
