    Just to let everyone know she was a bully in high school. She constantly bullied me. She didn’t like that I dated black men. Heard her on the radio one day talking about bullying and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. What she was saying not to do she did to me. So sorry but nothing special here to me!!!!

      That’s a lie. People will say anything…do something with your life.

      I don’t know Valeisha but I can recognize a hater from a mile away. I’m sure high school was a number of yrs ago. I suggest you leave it in the past and focus on all the blessings in your current life.

    Good Morning Valeisha- Congratulations on a well deserved position and Thank you for all your work and efforts to unify and change the disparity in this country when it comes to equality. I am the Director of Corporate for the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference which consists of 13 HBCU institutions. The position is new for me and I want so much to bring awareness of how great this conference is and reach National sponsors. Can you help me? I will do whatever I need to do to sit with you in counsel if just for an hour. This might be a long shot but we have not because we ask not. Looking forward to a positive reply.
