"The best thing anyone can do for you are the things you never have to ask them"
I read this quote online and I was trying to think of a way to express gratitude and respect for Valeisha. I've been a student of her craft and work etiquette over the years. I read, recommended and wrote about Valeisha's book The GirlPrint on my book/literature blog "Brains & Beauty". You can read about it in the link provided here: http://brainsnbeautyblog.blogspot.com/2018/08/the-girlprint.html
That post was written in 2018. I described Valeisha as an architect and she still is. All of my blogs were created with a purpose, a guide to elevate others. I believe everyone plays a part of a blueprint or map there are many essential parts that help connect in some form. There's a quote "when the student is ready the teacher appears". Timing is a blessing. During this pandemic I must say that I have learned and still learning some empowering and inspiring lessons from Valeisha. Her integrity and consistency is admirable. I consider her my silent mentor uplifting and practical. To align with the quote "The best thing anyone can do for you are the things you never have to ask them" is true and demonstrated through her actions, what she does for others embracing good vibes! Thank you for all you do Valeisha!
I would like to congratulate Valeisha as The Recording Academy's First Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer. Well deserved and an inspiration for women!
There's a quote that stood out from a Rolling Stone article regarding the announcement:
“The things that impressed me weren’t so much the exact specifics of what she thought the Academy needed, but also her philosophical approach in the way she looked at things and problem solved along with her energy and attitude on being proactive,” Mason Jr. says. “She’s willing to get her hands dirty and jump right in. She has an approach of getting things done and winning, and I gravitated towards that.”
