Sibling Spotlight Lewter

Introduce yourselves: 

Paige: Hi! I’m Paige and I am a 24 year old from the small town of Ahoskie, North Carolina. You’ve probably never heard of it but just know I’m a good ole country girl! I am a graduate of North Carolina A&T State University. Go Aggies! I currently live in Maryland and work for the United States Navy as an Electrical Engineer. I loooove children and I volunteer with them in a STEM organization that I started in my community. Working with kids and helping to provide them with opportunities are one of my passions and someday I hope to make that into a career.

I also love to dance and you can catch me break out into a move at the most random of moments. Traveling and experiencing other cultures is something I enjoy, especially different types of foods. I love to eat!  I can be very outgoing at times but I’m really shy.

Michele: Hey Guys! My name is Michele Lewter. I am 23 years old from a small town in Eastern North Carolina known as Ahoskie. I am a proud Alumnus of North Carolina A&T State University. Class of 2012!! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering and I am currently pursing my Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resource Management.

I would describe myself as a very playful, caring, person who is on a mission to make a difference in the lives of others. I believe in enjoying every moment of your life and doing what makes you the happiest.  In my free time, I enjoy working out, online shopping, and enjoying my time with family and friends. I also adore painting my nails and experimenting with different nail polishes. I wouldn’t call myself a home body but I will make sure that I am at home in time to watch my favorite television sitcoms and favorite reality shows!

Hair Tutorial Video: “How to Braid Your Hair”

Good Morning. We hope everyone is having a Magnificent Monday! We’re back with another hair video! This video was requested by our friend E, *waving* HEY E! It’s a tutorial on ‘how to braid’ (two braids bobby pinned into a protective style).

I did NOT know how to braid my hair a few years ago, I would always depend on Charla for that lol. One day Charla convinced me to try it myself (one because I was driving her insane asking her to do my hair every morning and two she knew she would not always be around to save me from bad hair days so I needed to learn how to do it myself).

Anyways by sitting in front of the mirror and practicing I was able to learn myself. This experience has made me a firm believer in the saying ‘Practice Makes Perfect’. The video is less than 5 minutes but we hope it is helpful.  Check it out below & as always feel free to provide us with feedback:

What’s your favorite protective style?

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.
