I AM QUEEN Magazine Set To Host It’s 2nd Annual Brunch Under The Theme Forbidden Silence



Last year we hosted our very first Brunch, ‘Once Upon A Brunch’ at the Ritz Carlton Fort Lauderdale, Fl. It was simply amazing. We had women from The Bahamas, The United States, and Canada represented. Friendships were formed and business connections were made all while enjoying good food in a relaxing atmosphere.

This year our Brunch under the theme Forbidden Silence is designed to help women realize the power they possess when they speak their truth. The bible declares that we overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony which means that our stories possess the ability to save lives. Many times people are afraid to share their stories because of fear of rejection but sharing our stories liberate us from the expectations of others.

We would love to honor 15 mothers who have been working all year with little or no recognition. As mothers we serve and we do it with love but there are times when we need to be served. We want to pour back into you like you’ve poured into so many others. However, we can not do this alone. If you’d like to partner with us we are accepting monetary donations and gift bag items. If you would like to join us in the endeavor email us at hello@iamqueenmagazine.com.

Forbidden Silence Brunch is scheduled for Dec 7th, 2019 at The Palms Hotel & Spa Miami Beach Florida. Tickets go on sale November 16th.

Woman Entrepreneur Spotlight w/ XoXo Kalani

Charmaine Nichelle C.E.O of XoXo Kalani


The number of women-owned businesses grew by 74% between 1997 and 2015–a rate that’s 1.5 times the national average, according to the recently published 2015 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report commissioned by American Express Open. Women now own 30% of all businesses in the U.S., accounting for some 9.4 million firms.

Women are proving every day that we have the ability to do anything we set our minds to achieve. I got a chance to speak with a pioneering woman; Charmaine Nichelle C.E.O of XoXo Kalani to hear why she choose entrepreneurship.

1. Why do you think Black Women are the fasting growing group of entrepreneurs?

I personally became an entrepreneur in order to pursue my innovative desires. It is such a great blessing to have the ability to be a stay-at-home mom, but in my case, that just wasn’t enough. I have to stay busy. My mind is always working and I am constantly coming up with solutions to needs that I have as a stay-at-home mom and as a consumer. Perhaps many of the other women of color, entrepreneurs, are like me and simply want to get paid for their creative ideas and turn them into lucrative businesses. The ability to create your own schedule is also extremely appealing to women like me because we already have so much going on, so being able to run your business on your time, make money, and still run the show at home is for me a win-win.

3 Generations 3 Branches 3 Commitments: Happy Veteran’s Day

Happy Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served and are currently serving our country’s military. For one day, we stand united in respect for our service members we celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

My commemorations go so much further than that. I am part of something that is bigger than me and unique. I am part of a family full of military members, not only that, I am part of a 3 generational legacy.

Healing for Rape: A 9-Step Recovery Plan


Rape, the very sound of the word makes people feel uncomfortable. It’s the elephant in the room in many families, and somehow it’s always perceived as the victim’s fault. I’ve always believed that it’s the silence of the victims that have given predators and society the authority to treat rape victims the way they do. Silence is great for most things but NOT in cases of abuse; there should be an outcry. The identity of rape victims are concealed, and I can understand that, because no one wants anyone to know that they were raped no matter the circumstance, so we hide behind the alias while our assailants profess their innocence boldly. While the legal system intended to protect us by concealing us, it has also alienated us and given the advantage to the enemy. Remaining nameless and faceless has harmed us.

My grandmother asked me, why did I put my face on my first book, How I Escaped The Prison of Rape: The Journey To Total Freedom. This book tells the story of how I was molested as a child and raped as an adult. Her concern was that people would come back and point fingers at me, and I told her that it was necessary for me to put a face to the story. Putting my face to the shame the enemy once threatened to expose; was my way of telling hell, I won’t be bullied. The things you continue to hide you cannot be healed from.

The Sky Is NOT The Limit- It’s Launch Season


There are different levels of blessings “But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” – Matthew 13:8. A blessing is a relative term because what may be a blessing to me maybe a curse to you and vice versa. 

The Holy Spirit told me that we are on a launching pad –NOT an airstrip! Isreal got many blessings, but there was only one promise. The promise was that God would take them into a land flowing with milk and honey. A good place. However, on the way there, they overcame many obstacles and received many blessings while in transition.
