On Sunday March 3rd, we had our first IdentiFemi show of 2013. The weeks leading up to the show were both exciting and stressful! In the end, we were very pleased with our set up and the amount of product we were able to create! Here are a few photos and a video of the experience. (Note: The volume of the video may be a little low, make sure to turn your volume on high so that you can hear it.)
Thanks for visiting our IdentiFemi Blog! Here is a video Myah did on balance. Do you struggle with balance? We know we sure do. In this two and a half minute video, Myah gives three tips that she uses to help her balance her work load. Watch and let us know what you think!

Name Yakima "Kima" Whitehead
In a relationship
I want to be a nurse practitioner. I’m working on getting there.
I graduate on December 15th, 2012. I’m going to try to get into some type
of grad school program and work my way up.
My style is sort of chic, a little bit modern, and very
girly, like classic girly.
is your style icon?
I don’t think I really have a style icon. [I wear] what I
like and what I see. I kind of put my own stuff together. I may take bits and
pieces, I may look at Vogue or Elle or Cosmopolitan but it’s not oneparticular person that I always [am inspired by], because style changes.
I take what I like and put a twist on it.
what femininity means to you?
Being a woman. Being comfortable with yourself. Feeling
liberated and feeling like your own. Being unique in your own type of way and being
able to open up.
you experienced a time when your style and femininity were challenged?
to college, transferring from [having a] teenage, young girl style to young
adult style. [That battle] between “do I still dress like I’m in high school or
do I dress like I’m in college now?” It was challenging trying to find out how
I should look since [ I was] transferring to a different stage of life.
beautiful can be a challenge in today’s world. What are some things that make
you feel beautiful?
When my hair is done. I love coming home and washing my
face, giving myself facials or having
natural facial remedies.Just being
comfortable in my skin just and relaxed. [When] I’m not too dolled up, just
If you could give advice to your younger self what
would you say?
Less is best. Let your inner beauty shine [by] not putting on
so much makeup and jewelry to mask how you feel or how you view yourself. Most people
find you more beautiful when you don’t have all that on you. I’ve heard that
from lots of people, “ohh you look so much prettier without the makeup.” Just
find your own personal look. Even if you want to put on a little make up, look
like you’re not trying.
do you stay confident?
Telling myself I’m beautiful. I may not be the prettiest
girl in the world, there is always someone prettier than you, but as long as
I’m happy with myself, then that’s good enough, that’s all you can ever really
be. If you’re happy with yourself, other people become happy with you too.
do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
[In] five years, probably still going to school (laughs). Probably trying to
be a nurse practitioner.
And in 10 years,I am
a nurse practitioner, traveling, just enjoying my life. Taking every
aspect of it and enjoying my life as I can.
Congratulations Kima on your recent college graduation! We
are sure you will go far!!!
