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

D – My name is DJ Kru, Dallas, Texas and about one week from moving to the good ole ATL. 

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

D - I feel like my calling in life is whatever God calls me to do at whatever given time in that moment. My purpose leads to different pathways and avenues in life that fuels my interests at heart. The Spirit of God guides my direction.

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

D - I've always had a strong sense of self since the day I came out of the womb. You have to navigate through all of the bullshit in life. My self-discovery journey is similar to a roller coaster, somewhat compared to the whirlwind of emotions that takes place once someone experiences a roller coaster. Once your way is found it can be a bit easier to bare. It has been a beautiful journey and overall experience. 

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

D - We all have to struggle in order to found our way. The struggles are real but they have helped me grow to be a stronger person. I'm a lover but I fight when need be. So it's important that I keep going despite all of the struggles that may arise. 

 Five: Who or what motivates you to create?

D - God and ADHD. I create for my people and community as a whole. For people to see what they cannot see in real life. Not too many people can see that we are all human despite our sexual preferences. For those who cannot understand or wonder the reasons as to why. I create for myself and to help others through my God given talents. It's a constant reminder for me to keep going and live out my purpose. 

Six: What is your long time passion in life? 

D - My long time passion in life is to heal the world through everything I am most passionate about. It may sound cheesy, but I do believe that we are all put on this earth for a purpose. Not until' I use all of my tools and gifts to help as many people along the way; my purpose will not be fulfilled until' that is done. 

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? 

D - I would say to figure out the things and people that bring you absolute joy. Surround yourself with joyful ass people. Go ahead and take some time to discover who you are for who you are. Once you start there you'll be able to see all of the intellects and attributes that you're made of. We all come from the artist and the artist makes no mistake. We're put here for a purpose to live out. When you are suffering from love and acceptance think of how you were created to be beautiful because that is what and who I am. And feel free to go from there.

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? 

D - I think that instead of being told how beautiful us women of color are. But we need to be shown how beautiful we are. Just because you tell someone that they're beautiful doesn't mean they will believe it. Beauty comes from the soul, spirit, and the mind. We have to be told to tap into our beauty and be able to see what's inside. So that we can show people that we believe all that we are and then some. We're all taught that a certain person or type is a form of beauty. But everyone has their own perception of beauty .. So what actually is beauty?
