The Sibling Spotlight: Meet the Thompson’s

We’re back with another Sibling Spotlight feature, the bond shared between siblings is of the utmost importance to us. We absolutely adore this connection! We highlight the importance of establishing a healthy relationship with your sibling through featuring siblings that have great relationships.

Next up meet the Thompson’s:

Emani & Kiare!!

Sibling Spotlight Thompsons

Introduce yourselves (Tell us a little bit about yourselves):

KIARE: What up!? Describe myself? Uh I’ll try… I’m Kiare Thompson a 24 year- old educated black male. Born and raised South Sacramento, California. A dapper individual with a passion for enjoying every single day God blesses me with on this beautiful earth. I love my family. Alpha Phi Alpha is what I rep, hella athletic, hip-hop head, R&B enthusiast, all around music connoseiur. I love tacos and elegant intellectual women who can engage in stimulating conversation over a light glass of cognac. (Henny preferably but I might pull out the D’usse for the fancy ones). Hahaaa.

EMANI: Hello, I’m Emani Thompson. I’m 27, from Sacramento, California. To describe myself I’ll say I’m a delicate, free-spirited, easy- going lady with a small side of sass who’s crazy.sexy.cool. I have the honor of being the Mommy to an amazing, God-given little lady, Miss Jourdyn. I’m a dreamer backed by faith and believe in everyone unapologetically owning their greatness, especially our African-American babies. I have a passion for involvement in inner- city neighborhoods with the children that are often an afterthought. They inspire me to exude excellence and to bring something back to the table for them.  Dare I say, I hope to show them the world one day?! (I do plan on it.)

The Laughs & Cries of Sisterhood

Today’s post is dedicated to all of the siblings out there and the importance of establishing a solid foundation with your brother(s) and/or sister(s). Since National Sibling Day was this week we felt that this would be very befitting! Well as you can probably already tell my sister and I are very close and always have been. I’m the little big sister (C) because I’m taller & she’s the big little sister (V) because she’s older (She’s gonna kill me for telling you guys that LOL). That’s not to say that our relationship has always been picture perfect, (because TRUST ME it hasn’t) we have definitely had our ups and downs but at the end of the day, we always find a way to come together, make it work, and allow things to fall right into place.
