About Ken
I'm Ken (which is short for Kendericia - it's my middle name and I love to go by it). I live in Brooklyn with my hubby and children. I have a full-time gig as the Director of Administration at an education institution where I manage a team of 15 + (the team is made up of Instructional Designers, Educational Technologist, Project Managers, Media Managers, etc.). I am the essentially the gatekeeper of my unit and I blog in my spare time! Typically I try to do it twice a week. It sorta keeps me alive....

The idea is not to live forever, but to create something that will!

How many kids? Ages?

Sydney, Ramar, and Aida

Words you live by/quotes you love

"Do onto others as you would want to be done onto to you."
"The idea is not to live forever, but to create something that will!" - Andy Warhol

Best advice you've ever been given

When having a conversation, especially slightly difficult ones, to suspend all judgments. Why? Because you just never know what someone may be going through. Be KIND at all times. Listen to understand, and you will be surprised what you might hear. I tell my staff this all the time.....

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I love to travel with my children. So we do it at least twice a year.

What are your personal/brand goals for this year?

To collaborate with a few brands, to work on an editorial (from the selection of the concept to researching and selecting the clothing + accessories, choosing the location + photographer, directing the shoot, submitting the final product to a magazine, etc.,) and getting my 1st piece of work published in a magazine. That's my goal for this year. And, I now it may sound simple. Making it a reality would be amazing + fulfilling.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

leaving my kids without a mom/dad.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Just finding the time to blog! I think i'm currently making progress, however.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

To LIVE life! Not just exist, but truly live. And, that fear is NOT real.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Because of the sense of community, I felt when reading about the mission/goals, everyone's story - I believe it has a lot to offer me. Have a community is one thing, but when it's made of a diverse set of people from all walks of life, that's golden! And, I want to be a part of something that will add value.
