Your Name: Shaneka O’Bryant (Queen)

Your Age:  28

Your Zodiac Sign:  Gemini

Where are you from?  Long Beach, CA

What’s your focus, purpose, passion, and contribution to the world?

My focus is to be better than I was yesterday or today. My purpose is to spread peace and be love while growing in love. My passion is being MUSED. My contribution to the world is sending love and light out into the universe everyday to everyone and everything.

How do you do it and who do you do it with?

I keep a positive mind and outlook on life while always considering others, on top of that my son is my daily motivation to keep going and growing! And I do it with myself, with my son, and with my loved ones. 

What are your special talents?

I’m a kickass MOM and a DIY Queen lol. I would like to think I inspire my close friends and family to always remain positive in any situation. that’s a special talent right? Lol.

What are you working on at the moment?

MYSELF mostly and I’ve stepped away from my modeling at the moment.. (you can probably tell from my instagram feed lol) - to further my education in Physical Therapy which I’ve had a huge passion for since high school - (I’m sharing gems with you that only a handful of people have known about!). I am working on getting back into expressing myself creatively again and in a more meaningful and timeless way.

What does your art mean to you?

My art means everything to me in all honesty, sometimes i need to say something. It is a way for me to express myself in a non-verbal style that makes a difference; whether that difference is for me or for others. It allows me to bare my soul for others to pick at, not knowing if it will resonate with others. 

What does love mean to you?

Ohh I LOVE love. Love has endless definitions. It’s something you’re passionate about. Love means you have someone to count on. Love is forever growing, there isn’t a stopping point, it’s a continuous process. There’s a lot of depth to love, but ultimately love to me is selfless.

How does your zodiac sign impact the way you love?

I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic, gentle love and intellectual connection win me over. I easily make sense of a partner’s behavior and motivations, sometimes picking apart tiny pieces of behavior - lol. Since my sign rules communication, a mental match and frequent communication are key!

What does God mean to you?  

EVERYTHING!

When did you learn self-love?

I’ve been learning self-love everyday since I was a child. But, I really started practicing self-love at the age of 19. that’s when I went through my first cleanse of the mind, body, and soul - (I actually acknowledged and became fully awake & aware of what was happening and why).

How has practicing self-love changed your life?

Practicing self-love has changed my life in many ways from the way I parent to the way I interact with the others or how I allow others to interact with me. It has molded me to be myself by all means necessary - with no regrets… maybe a few “check yourself” moments, but all for the greater good of my self-love! 

What is your philosophy of life?

I have a tattoo going down my back on the left side that says, “You can grow flowers where dirt use to be”.. that’s definitely my philosophy of life! And to, "grow with the flow". 

What advice would you give someone who is attempting to make a dream into a career?

I would tell them to seek what is seeking you! Never stop studying yourself, stay true to your vision. Prioritize your priorities and practice consistent consistency. AND always take moments to reflect on how far you’ve come and where you’re going next!

Nobody knows I am....  actually very shy.

I wish I could stop…. being so anxious and letting my anxiety get the best of me.

Self love means…. Feeling free to express yourself without limitations.

I find true beauty in…. Others and what radiates in their hearts. 

I want to teach my child or children that… I want to teach my son Cinco and my future child or children that you must face all challenges with confidence along with the wisdom to choose your battles carefully. No matter what, ALWAYS be proud of yourself and where you come from! Know that you can be anything and whoever YOU want to be in this world! always remain kind! -Stop and help someone along the way! listen to your heart! and always love yourself first!!!
