Joanne, age 37 of Guyanese background was born in Brooklyn New York; resides in the East Flatbush section. Joanne is currently employed by the NYC Board of Education for six years. She is the mother of two lovely daughters ages 13 and 7. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her girls, playing pool, watching a great movie and enhancing her gift of writing.
Joanne has been exploring her gift of writing for more than 15 years, which started out as a hobby, but as you can see has evolved into the artistic work of book entitled “Through My Eyes”. Her style of writing is from everyday life, things that people can relate to. She touches on subjects of love, relationships, inspiration, sex and among other subjects that many are scared to touch. Her writings can be humorous, inspirational and straight raw at times. But with no intentions of hurting feelings. But, I will tell you she will make you raise your eyebrows. Joanne’s book as well as her CD can be purchased at www.joannestephen.com
Some of the proceeds will help Breast Cancer and the Haiti Relief.
Joanne is also a radio personality and her show is called “What’s Your Vibes” with Blackpoet which can be heard from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. eastern time on www.e2onair.com each and every Saturday.
She is currently working on two other books. One is a children’s book which will be donated to schools all over the world.
Joanne has worked with Reggae artist Lambert Coateston a.k.a. Phantom on his track called Gurlz Be Careful which will be hitting the airwaves soon.
I have posted a link to one of her spoken word pieces.
Please listen to “I Am That Woman”: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_2762470
There are more of her spoken word listed, please listen to them.
I tell you this young lady is making her mark in this world.
This is something she said to me, “Everyday in life is a challenge to do something better. I am here to make sure it gets done or at least spread the word to do good”. Joanne, thank you for that statement.
That should remind us all to do good in some shape, form or fashion. I am doing mine, are you doing yours?
I will be tuning in as usual to “What’s Your Vibes”. Talk to you soon, Joanne.
God Bless you Joanne as you continue on your artistic journey.
