A little about Quin…
Being at peace with yourself and knowing who you are is one of the most important things when embarking on any journey. For a long time I was lost, wandering around with no clear future in sight. The world around me was hazy and I tried my best to clear it up. I thought I knew who I was and tried to shape myself into who I thought people wanted me to be. I had no real identity. I was made up of superficial characteristics that existed in other people’s minds. I would never let my natural instincts take over, and had no confidence in myself or in my ability to just be me. I did not trust myself.
For so long things that I wanted the most always seemed to slip through my fingers. I was sad and depressed, forcing me to take a step back and self reflect. I found myself missing out on opportunities because I wasn’t ready for them (although I thought I was). As I sit here and write this, I’m glad that those opportunities escaped me. These small defeats allowed me to embrace my failures, analyze myself, and helped me grow in ways I never imagined. This same mentality is what gets me through life today.
At this point in my life I am wiser, stronger, and have a deeper sense and understanding of myself. My future is clear, my goals laid out, and best of all I’m not afraid to be me. I know exactly who I am and am confident in myself. I can honestly say that I am ready to embark on life’s journey. I’m ready to go after what I want and am confident in my ability to get it. Some days are still hard but I push through.
Queen Quin has been my love and light since March 2017 and it has been a journey of growth, doubt, and healing. Thank you for spending time on my site and I hope it aides you in some way. As a Creative Entrepreneur I wanted to create a space where I was able to share my stories, experiences, failures, and successes. All too often, we creatives focus on everyone else’s success and we forget to remind ourselves that behind massive success is an abundance of hard work and failures. It’s ok to fall off track or to take an L. This journey is not for the faint of heart. People don’t talk about these things until they’re at the top of the hill, making it difficult for people like you and me to really grasp the hardwork and dedication it took to get them there. So I’m choosing to talk about it right now. Join me on my journey as I lay it all out in the open, in hopes that someone is inspired by and can learn from my experiences, good and bad. Queen Quin is for all my Creative Entrepreneurs who need a little extra inspiration to keep pushing forward.
I am a STORYTELLER…
I am a Director, Writor, Creative, and Visionary. I fell in love with storytelling at a young age, promising myself that I would make these stories my life. So welcome to my life’s work. Sometimes I’m confused as to what that is, but I trust in my abilities to accomplish anything I set my mind to. I don’t think there’s any one definition that can truly describe me. Who I am changes as each year passes, building on a foundation of love, peace, and harmony. I constantly seek knowledge, hoping to learn everything my brain will allow me to absorb.
As a Caribbean American, my culture and life experiences dictate the lens through which I view the world. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY I was fortunate enough to be immersed in culture and diversity, giving me new and unique perspectives to use in my work. As a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, with my Master’s in Television, Radio, and Film, I aim to tell stories that people can connect to and learn from, stories that boldly expose, correctly inform, and eagerly educate.
