As 2018 comes to a close I have reflected on what my year has been like. Honestly, 2018 was another great year in the books. It had its share of hiccups but overall it was incredible. I am sharing my top ten moments here on MimiCuteLips.com. While they were amazing, they don’t even begin to touch my incredible personal victories and goals.
My word for 2018 was intentional, I stuck to that all year long and it made a difference. I don’t know if I’ve been so loyal to my word in previous years. Sticking with it showed me the power of intention. I will share my word for 2019 this week.
Here is my Top 10 in no particular order…
TOP MOMENT #1 Black Panther
Black Panther no doubt was the top movie of 2018. It was black excellence in its most royal and authentic form. I am honored to have sat down and interview movie Director Ryan Coogler, Marvel Exec. Nate Moore, and Costume Designer Ruth Carter!
TOP MOMENT #2 Book Feature!
I shared my story in a book, in an actual factual print with my picture and everything. The book is titled Today’s History Makers 21st Century African-American Female Entrepreneurs by Tanya Barnett. It was so dope to be featured among so many incredible women.
TOP MOMENT #3 Meeting Mc Lyte
I did media coverage for the SISTAHS IN BUSINESS EXPO in New Jersey and got my entire life. I met MC Lyte which was hella dope for a brown 80’s baby who grew up in the Bronx, New York. The event itself was nothing but Black Girl Magic personified.
TOP MOMENT #4 Momference Speaking Engagement
I was honored to speak on the “Mommy In the Sheets” Panel at the Innaugral Momference. You can read the recap to see what you missed. It is happening again in 2019, you will be pissed if you miss it.
TOP MOMENT #5 Wendy Show Game
A day trip to New York landed me some fun and some coins while playing a Shoe Game on the Wendy Williams Show. I’ve watched for years, I’ve even been in the audience 5+ episodes. This time I was on the show and that was so dope!
TOP MOMENT #6 Interviewing Anthony Hamilton
I was over the moon when I got to chop it up with Anthony Hamilton. Even better that this was in the name of giving back. The story hit very close to home for me, I’m so thankful to put in such a space with such great energy for an incredible opportunity. My soul was blessed beyond measure.
TOP MOMENT #7 St. Jude Ambassadorship
I have been going hard for St. Jude for two years now. But this year they took my work to a new level by making me an official St. Jude Ambassador for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I was so honored to be recognized for my efforts. I go hard for them all year long.
TOP MOMENT #8 Carol’s Daughter 25th Anniversary
Simply put, it just doesn’t get any blacker than the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Carol’s Daughter. #FightMe
TOP MOMENT #9 Meeting Jackie Joyner Kersee
Thanks to Comcast I met and had lunch with a few dope ass women Olympians. You may have heard of Jackie Joyner-Kersee before, this woman still holds world records.
TOP MOMENT #10 Relaunch of Custom Kicks by Mimi
This was a special one for me, I simply decided to relaunch my Custom Kicks by Mimi custom sneaker business.
