Sunday Funday – "The Wood" Sneak Peak Weekend

Lawrence, Chante’, & Cliff

I feel I may have shed a few pounds from the event this weekend. It was crowded and a sauna, but a good times were had with witty tongues & laughter with most of the crew I was with. It was also a good opportunity to meet new people and make new possible connections down in Chicago. Each event also gives me checks, errors, and knowledge of how to improve my networking and business skills.

Here’s my philosophy for success, fear limits people’s opportunities. The best intellectual information you can gather is through your own personal experiences and admitted wrongs. That is why I am not afraid to step out of my city and expand. That is why I keep moving forward with or without others, no regrets or apologies needed. Even if I am the only white girl in the whole damn room. Jokes aside, I don’t let skin color phase me. The people in my life know that my curiosity allows me to social in any situation & in any environment around the world peacefully. At the end of the day, we all have our own stories. We just need to educate ourselves when it’s personal or just business. Majority of the time, for me, it’s just business. That is how I keep moving forward in the industries of my choices.

Lawrence Williams of Law Films & Clifford Cook, the mastermind of the project, hosted the All White Party on Friday Night @ The Loft 308. A successful event with over 100 cast, crew, & supporters, coming to show their love for The Wood, an upcoming TV/web series in the works. I was there to practice my photography skills and capture the memorable night.

I had the opportunity to talk with non-CCIU members who also feel and are approaching the necessity of bringing Chicago together and end the unnecessary violence & segregation in the hoods. That is the purpose of this project, in my viewpoint. To make awareness of Chicago’s lifestyles and to bring people together instead of segregating based on the neighborhoods they are from.

Of course the CCIU crew was representing strong and supporting throughout the night. More pictures will be revealed on my Twitter & my Facebook soon. Stay tuned.
