Have you ever met someone for the first time, who, out of nowhere began to tell you what you needed to do to improve yourself? Your first reaction is to get defensive, but, you can't because there is something sincere about what they're telling you. Though it may not be accurate, that was my first impression of Miss Tionna Smalls.
Some of you may ask "who is Tionna Smalls?" Many of you (especially bloggers) are very acquainted with Miss. Tionna--through her work with the Gawker weblog magazine, blogger.com (invited readers only), her self-published book Girl, Get Your Mind Right! (which will be re-released), or for reality show fanatics What Chilli Wants; which introduced Tionna Smalls to a whole new larger audience.
Though not an actual "Match-Maker", her professionalism, expertise and experience in relationships proved an asset in that position. Her pull-no-punches get-the-job-done personality was not only entertaining, but helped her complete her task with success.
What's in the future? From what I hear; continued work in the non-profit field. I hope this sexy BBW will consider modeling as part of her repertoire. Her confidence will influence may women--young and younger (your only as OLD as you feel). Until then-- hate her, love her, love to hate her, hate to love her, whichever, Miss Tionna Smalls is making moves and we are watching.
