Feeling that creative mojo & listening 2 some Bernhoft,
 what a better way 2 appreciate by 
creating a PW2 joint.

Here's a recap of this past year 
roaming through the streets of Portland.

It's cool 2 see what you come 
up with after doing a 
1 hour photo run up & down 
Congress Ave.
Totally worth the effort for it's 

Oh yeah!

Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

After my extremely brief experience with the art of yoga, 
I have come 2 appreciate the complexity. 

It's not as easy as it may appear folks.
Muscles were used that haven't been since...
Took me nearly a week 2 recover. lol

Anyways, here's an upcoming sensation 
with a real knack for the craft.

is her name & a Chi town native at that!

Here's a PW2 video edit showcasing her personal side.

Whaddup gurl!;)

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Alwayz Angry.

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Looking back in time we are in debt 2 the leaders.
Angels of mercy everyone.

Good folks who believe there is no good & evil
fought long & hard until the 
battles are were won.

Heroes make the sun rise in the morning
Heroes make the moon 
shine bright @ night.
Heroes makes our lives a little stronger
In the soul of everyone he can be found.

Give us an anchor or 
a rock 2 lean on.
A captain 2 take us through the storm.

What makes a soldier ride 
alone into battle?
Can anybody tell me where he's coming from?

He's that stranger on the street.
He's that child who's @ your feet.

Searching for freedom & justice.

You've seen him time & again
You know they only fight 2 win.

They're the challenger's evil
& I'm glad we know them.

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Because of Who I Am LLC (BOWIA) is a company I founded in July 2018 that includes BowiaBrand products (a confident expression products company) and Khalade3 Publishing. Persevering through life’s ups and downs inspired me to start BOWIA as a way to share empowering ideas. 
I believe despite my life experiences my spirit has not been broken in large part because of who I am at the core. Each individual has “something” inside that keeps them going when life gets dark, but may have to dig really deep to find it at times, and that is okay.
The idea for the name of the company came to me over 13 years ago when life was pretty challenging. At that time, I thought I’d one day write a book about my life experiences and be able to celebrate how I made it through.  I am happy to report that life has gotten so much  better since then. 😊🙌🏾   
My plans have changed a bit and instead of writing one book I plan to self- publish a series of Because Of Who I Am books with stories from people detailing how they have been able to survive life’s challenges because of who they are.  Each of the items sold in the BowiaBrand store contains a confident expression I use to keep me motivated. 
BOWIA seeks to inspire individuals to be their authentic self, to find their purpose and live life with confidence.   BOWIA aims to make self-confidence the standard, not the exception.
Your support in this new journey is appreciated.
In Peace,
                         Inspiration. Purpose. Confidence.

In this dire time where human rights are jeopardized & lives seem not 2 matter, I find it appropriate 2 reintroduce a period where people actually fought for what they believed in.

The Black Panther Party's bold approach to gun rights & police brutality has absolute relevance 50 years later! 

Have things actually chanced since then? 
Depends on who you ask.
From my experience in this life history has the tendency 2 repeat itself while learning from previous mistakes & making necessary adjustments. So where do we go from here?

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)
