Isis King Receives A Special Gift From Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks surprises Isis King, the first transgender contestant on America's Next Top Model, with sex reassignment surgery in an episode of her talk show to air Tuesday.

"This is not happening!" King, who was born Darrell Walls, says when Banks introduces her to Dr. Marci Bowers, a leading gender reassignment surgeon who has experienced the surgery herself. Bowers is paying for the surgery.

"[I feel] like I'm about to wake up," says King - who lived in a homeless shelter in Maryland before trying out for the show.
The 22-year-old hadn't gone under the knife yet because she couldn't afford the $20,000 to $35,000 price tag.

Why BmoreFab! Should Blog For SBU 2009!

Since day one of its existence, BmoreFab! has been a vital part of the Baltimore African American community. Our blog updates its daily readers on community events, news, and politics. BmoreFab! has the unique balance of being both fun and serious, and has a loyal fan base where readers choose to get their information from consistently. As proud supporters of the African American American community in Baltimore, we do our best to not only let readers know what's going on in our city, but around the country and world as well.

Blogging for the State of The Black Union would allow us to give a positive light to a city that is usually portrayed so negatively in the media. As a contributor for the State of The Black Union 2009 BmoreFab! would be able to represent the voice of the young people and would also express to readers what we as young people need to do to get on track and stay there. Being apart of such an important conversation in this great moment in history would be an amazing opportunity for our troubled city.

By contributing to the State of The Black Union we would be giving our readers, their families, and our community a motivation that is much needed, especially during these tough times. Thank you for your consideration!Check Spelling

Recap: Essence Young Women Leadership Conference

Saturday morning I actually had to work (what?! I know) but after I finished grown folks business, I rushed to the convention center to the first-ever Essence Young Women's Leadership Conference. When I heard this conference was coming to DC, I knew I had to be in the building. This great one-day conference was centered around young women and focused on empowerment.

Already late I grabbed my Starbucks and headed to my saved seat in the back of the room. Wow...I was already amazed to see over 1000 young women, suited in their best and eager to learn the nuggets of wisdom from the day's panelists.

DC Fab! with other conference attendees

The conference offered a variety of panels mostly catering to young women in college. With workshops such as "Set for Life: Your Fast Track to Financial Control," which had me taking notes in my iPhone and "Real Life 101: Lessons Learned Outside of the Classroom" where the entire room was inspired from the struggles and sacrifices made by the panelists who had come into their own (including "I Want to Work for Diddy's Capricorn who told an inspiring story about how she struggled to success after losing both parents).

Panelists included (from left) Cori Murray, Essence Entertainment Director,
Amy Barnett, former Teen People Editor and author, Capricorn Clark, Global Brand Manager of Sean John, Shante Bacon, Founding Partner of The 135th Street Agency

A highlight of the conference was a sit-down talk with Angela and Vanessa Simmons. Although most of the talk was redundant, (since we're all fans of Run's House and have heard their story before) it was nice to see them supporting this endeavor.

Another highlight of the conference was a panel hosted by the only man on the dais, Jeff Johnson, who hosted "Making Your Voice Heard: You Can Make a Difference." Continuing the theme of empowerment, this panel discussion even had me wanting to ask a question (if the line to ask a question wasn't so long).

Although the conference bags were empty, by the end of the day you could fill it up with sheer motivation. For me, attending this conference was a real kick in the you know what. I was itching to get out and get work done to forward not only my career but my dreams that often get mired by day-to-day worry, doubt and fear.

One of the best pieces of advice that I received from the conference was from Ionnie McNeill, a junior at Howard University. She advised to do five things (but I can only remember notes were a little shifty):

1. How much money do you want?
2. At what age would you like to accomplish this?
3. What are you going to do to earn it?

Create an action plan y'all...and get out there and do it! We gotta' take over the world. Now that Barack is President we really can do anything! :)

The conference ended with musical performances by Suai, a Universal Motown artist and Brandon Hines, who is no stranger to DC. I got a chance to tip toe backstage to interview this young man. Check in soon to view it! :)

Mark Clark Fired?!?

This sure has been a week of great change but not for everyone. Baltimore's own Marc Clarke and The Big Fat Morning Show were let go this week due to cut backs at Radio One.

92Q has been teasing the city of Baltimore with a huge announcement come Monday morning but BmoreFab! can confirm that Rickey Smiley will indeed take over Baltimore's number one morning show. Rickey's show is already syndicated throughout parts of the U.S. (he recently took Russ Parr's spot in Detroit) and will spread his popularity to Bmore.

Congrats Rickey but we sure will miss you Marc Clarke and crew!
