One: What is your name & where are you located? 

A - My name is Ayodale Savage, and I am located in the NYC/NJ area. I fluctuate back and forth for my work. 

Two: What do you feel is your calling in life? 

A - I feel like my calling in life is sharing art and creating opportunities. I want to create platforms and places for people to call their home, and share with the rest of the world. 

Three: When did you realize your self-worth and how has that journey of self-discovery been for you? What have you learned the most about yourself? 

A - I've always known how special I was, but I truly realized my self-worth in the year of 2015. I went through a lot, especially with my health and that helped me realize how much I should value myself and more importantly my time. I think what I've learned most about myself is that I give too much of myself and no one can use my time more than I can. 

Four: How has your struggles helped you to become a better woman? 

A - My struggles let me be who I am today. I take pride in all that I have experienced because I am smarter and stronger because of it. No one can fool me, take me for granted, or make me do anything that I am not sure of. It's an amazing feeling being so sure about yourself. 

Five: Who or what motivates you to create?

A - Quality motivates me to create. Knowing that there isn't much uniqueness and genuineness in art nowadays, I want to be the one to remind everyone that originality does still exist. 

Six: What is your long time passion in life? 

A - My passion is aesthetics. Letting everything I do, pursue, and create just have a natural minimal pure vibe to it. Whether it be my fashion, my photography, or even my music. 

Seven: If you could give any tips or advice to the young girls and women around the world who suffer with loving and accepting who they are, what would you say? 

A - I would tell them all that people can only affect you so long as you let them. How you see yourself is all that matters, and even though it's alright to doubt yourself. It's usually not worth it. 

Eight: What do you feel needs to be told to our beautiful women of color? Do you feel that we women of color hear those words often? If not, what can we do as a community to change that? 

A - Women of color need to KNOW their importance. No one is like us, no one was made like us, we are what everyone dreams to be. Smart, rich in spirit, and vibrant. We hold true quality and as much as the world tries to deny it, we are ESSENTIAL. I do not feel like we hear that often at all because it's so hard for people to admit how loved we really are. I think we as colored women need to show our confidence and make the world see where the culture started. Remind them of its originality.
