There are few people in your life that you met and immediately think; This person is an earth changer. They have the possibility to change the world and make life just that much better. I will admit when I met Qui (KEY) it wasn’t the proper venue to grasp such greatness. It was in a smoky pool hall in Manhattan, KS with my then current girlfriend Cherry. She was there with friends and family setting up a new coach for the Wildcats. That’s the local college football team for KSU. Now I quickly found out there was more than meets the eyes to Qui. Not only was she absolutely charismatic and might I add flirty. I mean it could have been my good looks, but girls as pretty as Qui rarely make the first move on me. She was so forthcoming with love and ambition. Her energy was so abundant that I had no choice but to be uplifted by it. It wasn’t till 30 min into the conversation that I found out this girl was no ordinary woman. She was powerful and remorseful. Later on when I met Jen I would be reminded of that same energy Qui had. So enamored by her strength of character I dived into her life story. Finding out as much as I could about this curious woman I had met so clandestinely at a pool hall. Turns out she runs her own movie and entertainment studio down in Texas. This is awesome on two parts one she has overcome an industry propagated my generally men alone and in Texas. A state that is rarely accepting of women or African Americans. She is all love to, seriously first time we met I got the most amazing hug. Usually, that’s one of those things I do to strangers and sometimes you get that um… expression and a shoulder hug. Now with Qui it was full on awesome. She brings out the best in people and pushes them to be excellent. She houses poets, movie makers, musicians. She has surrounded herself with so many positive forms of creativity and is letting them all flow through her companies vision. Her mission statement is basically that of bringing about positive change in yourself through your art for the community at large. Me and Qui have been meaning to do something together sense the moment we met. Sadly, we are both ridiculously hectic and finding time sometimes is just plain difficult. I’m sure we will work together in the future, but for now you all have to check this girl out. She is a reason to believe in your dreams. She has made her life happen and brought the folks she cares about right along with her. If you like the unapologetically awesome Jen Friel then this is a girl you’re going to fall in love with just as well. They both have the same energy and power guiding them through life.
