Musings of the Socially Aware

Akilah. 24. NYC by way of the Queen City. Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette.

What. Should. I. Do?

Last audition/meeting of the week face.

Nessa by Sam Hurd Photography

This lady is my friend, and she’s literally just the cutest thing in the entire world. She is the reason I started making YouTube videos, because I aspired to be as cute as her life aesthetic. **I’m obviously still working on it.

Tonight we chatted briefly, and we are both pursuing cute 60s French girl looks— so I guess this crappy, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” t-shirt I’m wearing to sleep has to go…

Also, she posted a new video tonight and it’s so cute.

Look at this cool project Leslie did. It was so much fun, and I’m super glad she asked me to help with it.

Next week can’t get here soon enough.



There’s so much thought and emotion that happens before having a conversation with the camera; there’s more to it than just delivering the lines. You have to:

  1. Make sure your hygiene is up-kept.
  2. Ask yourself if you still have a social life.
  3. Fix your hair, tame your hair.
  4. Learn how to edit on a program like Final Cut Pro X.
  5. Work really hard at not being boring. Challenge yourself to be entertaining.
  6. Know how the right lighting can do wonders.

I’ve been pushing myself harder than I ever have to get better at everything so I can start my career somewhere here in NYC. Guess for now, by day, I’ll be walking lots of four legged friends to pay the rent..

(a.k.a. getting paid to exercise!!)

hansmosis is incredible. Follow his blog. look at this picture so cuuuuute!

Hey Tumblr, It’s Akilah…

So you asked me so many questions that I figured I’d make this a regular old thing where once a month-ish I would answer your new deep Qs. Feel free to ask me more stuff here and maybe you’ll see your Qs answered in a video soon!
