"Hello" Thanks for reading my bio. I am Tangela Stephens a college graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Applied Arts Science and a minor in communications. I grew up in a small town in Southeast Texas and for fun I loved watching talking shows and that developed my passion for interesting stories. My twin sister and I would do interviews with each using our radio cassette tape recorder so that is how my interviewing skills got started .(LOL) My greatest accomplishment was winning the Miss Texas American Dream pageant and going on to compete in Miss American Dream Pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada. That lead me to many opportunities to act in music videos, television appearances, and being feature in magazines and news articles. In my media career I worked in the television production studio at my church, and as a radio co-host with local radio stations. When I am not blogging or vlogging about things that interested me you can find me at my day job or side hustle, and possible trying to figure out a way to travel to a new place I want to see. Lastly, I almost forgot to mention the best thing in my life. I am currently engaged to my best friend and soulmate Tobi Dollar. Our online friendship turned romantic and developed into something serious and we plan to get married very soon. Subscribe to my blog I guarantee to keep you interested and entrained. xoxox
