Joty Kay Uncut and Unstoppable

Published

on

Girls born in Black, Latino, or Indian families come to life with an already determined list of expectations. They are supposed to act a certain way, have certain beliefs, and live by a certain set of rules. The male generations before them established this way of living, and they are supposed to respect it and not “rebel” against them under any circumstances. However, the younger generations of women born into these types of families have started to change the way in which they are expected to live their life.

All those female-empowering marches, signs that say “Girls want to have fundamental rights,” began at the core of traditional families. Women who did not fit in one box, who went beyond the limits of their family lives, and who wanted more than what was already destined for them. They are the ones who took a step out into the world and started shining on their own, without parental supervision, without crazy expectations, without predetermined rules. Some of them followed their dreams into the college career they wanted. Others moved to different states and started a career that led them to have over 72.7K Instagram followers. Joty Kay belongs to the latter.

Breaking Away From Your Traditional Indian Family

Joty Kay was born into an Indian family in America who had rules and expectations for her to abide by. From the very beginning, she felt like she did not belong, like an outcast in her family and her neighborhood. Although they moved around a lot, she could never fit in, and it got particularly harder when they moved into a heavily Indian-influenced town. Kay felt lost and alone.

Her situation worsened when her dad got tangled up with drugs. Addiction was not commonly discussed in her community, so she felt even more lost than before. The good relationship she once had with her father had completely changed. Joty knew it was time for her to get away from such a toxic and harmful environment. That was when she packed her bags and moved to the city of stars, the city where everything is possible: Los Angeles.

 Uncut and Unstoppable

Moving to Los Angeles is like most movies show it: a struggle at first, but magical in the end. When she first arrived, Joty Kay was couch hopping among her friends, trying to find roommates, and figuring out the way to land on her feet. But that did not stop her from continuing to dream about the life she wanted to have. She started out as a Viner with videos holding views of up to 100 million, then found herself fighting to create a life of success for herself.

As she started building her Californian life, those who knew her told her she should have her own podcast because of her funny and opinionated personality. Although she immediately bought a microphone, it took her a while to get around to that project. Lucky for her now loyal listeners, she inevitably found herself recording her own podcast, sharing her thoughts, and making the audience laugh.

That is how Joty Kay: Uncut came to life. She decided to create a platform where her followers and those who came across her would get the raw, uncut, and unfiltered version of an Indian-American woman creating life on her own. The purpose of this podcast, according to Kay, is for “young girls to look up to me and see that it’s okay if you aren’t perfect, as long as you own that shit! Own who you are and you’ll never have to worry about what anyone says to you or about you ever again. Once I stopped seeking validation from others, there was no turning back.” And just like that, she became unstoppable.

Create Your Own Life

Many girls grow up wanting to escape the life they were born into. Trying to break the glass ceiling and go beyond the limits of their family traditions. Joty Kay is the perfect example of how this can be accomplished. She walked away when it was time and created a life of her own. This podcast host moved to the city of angels, slept on different couches, bought a microphone, and started sharing her opinion with strangers online. Her podcast is now loved by her audience, and she is an inspiration to girls everywhere who are seeking their freedom. Kay is the kind of woman who fought for her fundamental rights while also having fun.

How Dini Wigs is Revolutionizing Custom Wig Ordering During a Pandemic

Published

on

Sure, life under quarantine whilst living in a global health pandemic has taken a toll on our beauty regimes. Am I right ladies? And those regular trips to the hair salon seem an all but distant indulgent memory. Enter Dini Wigs, the haircare company revolutionizing the custom wig ordering process online. Whether you are suffering from medical hair loss, female pattern baldness, or just want to spark up your style with a professional look designed just for you, wigs are the newest fashion trend that can lift you out of the bad hair day cycle. Recently Chrissy Teigan was seen on Instagram rocking her own purple wig, captioning ‘the wig life … chose me’. The opportunity to drastically change your style, though not permanently, can be a powerful tool in helping women express themselves and take their beauty back.

New York based company Dini Wigs provides wigs for women from all walks of life, giving them the confidence and self-esteem, they deserve or just the new beauty boost they want for a fresh new look. 

Dini Wigs is committed to luxury, quality and cutting-edge fashion, driven by the pursuit of perfection. Many businesses have struggled during the pandemic, but fashion and beauty industries in particular are suffering from the lack of human contact that is so crucial in being able to deliver top quality service. Before the pandemic, customers would fly in from all over the world to get their custom Dini wigs, but now the business has completely pivoted since the start of the pandemic, providing an at home wig service which doesn’t require any in person contact.

Finding the right wig that is comfortable, natural looking and high quality is extremely important for anyone who chooses to wear them. It usually involves in person consultation and hand applied details that simply has not been able to continue through the pandemic. Founder Dini has recently revolutionized a key part of her business, creating ‘Dini From Home’ allowing customers to receive the same incredible quality without the risk of COVID-19 infection. 

The service consists of a preliminary Zoom appointment to get an idea of the wig of your dreams. This is followed by a package with all the tools you need to complete a 3D scan. A second Zoom appointment helps customers properly prepare for the scan which is done via a phone app. An exact replica of the customer’s head is then built and used to create the wig which is followed up with a final Zoom appointment to make sure everything is perfect.

Women who are experiencing hair loss in particular rely on the kind, empathetic and patient service of Dini Wigs. Hair loss is traumatic, no matter what the reason. Whether it is alopecia, cancer, hormones or other medical reasons, a woman can find herself extremely self-conscious when she loses her hair. Our hair feels like a part of identity, almost like a safety blanket that allows us to feel like ourselves. But losing it does not have to define you. The choice to wear a wig is up to the individual alone, but it may be the thing that makes you feel confident and back to yourself again.

While customers may be thousands of miles away, Dini Wigs still delivers the top-quality service that has made them world renowned. Each wig is expertly crafted and completely natural looking, using high quality untreated European hair. Dini first started her hairstylist journey in Jerusalem, Israel, before moving to New York where she has continued her legacy as a hair visionary with a truly special touch. The business is also family run, helping to keep the personable and loving touch that is so hard to find these days. 

The pandemic has put a halt to so many important industries, forcing people to tap into creativity and innovation they didn’t even know they had. Dini Wigs has pushed through the adversity facing the haircare industry and offers their expert services with revolutionary new methods.

The Legendary Rappers Who Influenced Sammie B to Become the Artist She is Today

Published

on

Famous for her tagline “Brliing” and how she fearlessly shares her story of battling her demons while radiating hope and positive energy, Sammie B is an artist from Cornwall, New York who can rap, sing, write, produce, paint, design, and create. 

Samantha Brooke Birmelin (Sammie B’s real name) already started rapping and writing poetry at an early age. As she grew older, she was certain that her destiny was to become an artist and musician. 

Her interest in rapping was fostered by some notable personalities in the business, namely, 2Pac, Missy Elliott, and Kid Cudi. 

“They really have impacted me, my music, and my path in many ways. I was a poet before anything else so 2Pac is the artist I connected with the most. “Changes” by 2Pac is one of my favorite songs. I’ve always felt his spirit and passion connected with mine,” Sammie B said. 

Meanwhile, Missy Elliott, the funky fresh hip-hop artist who changed the game for all female artists, helped Sammie B in staying true to herself as she progresses in her rapping career. 

“I saw myself in Missy Elliott when I was younger, as she was authentic and not trying to sell sex. I loved how she feels herself in such a unique and authentic way,” she said. 

Lastly, Kid Cudi serves as a huge inspiration to the artist from Cornwall since he was able to completely express his deepest emotions through music, something Sammie B did after going through the loss of her father, a relationship heartbreak, and battling with addiction. 

“He made me realize my purpose is to save the lives of many through my genuine and raw music because he saved mine along with countless others,” she said. 

Expressing Herself Through Music 

With everything that she’s been through, Sammie B has learned to turn her pain into passion and use music to get her message of love and positivity across. 

“People need to know who I am and what I’m about because it’s bigger than the music- it’s bigger than me. I want to make the world a better place through all of my creations,” Sammie B said. 

She added that she wants everyone to know that it’s okay to go struggle; it’s okay to be hurt and in pain, and that they can come out of it sooner or later. 

“My goal is to inspire many and be the hope shot they need. My music and art display me, Sammie B, in totality,” she said. 

An Artist to Look Out For 

With her music surpassing 25,000 streams from 19 different countries across the globe, Sammie B is keen on keeping the ball rolling for her career as she works on various projects, one of which is a three-part project called “The Joy is in the Journey.” 

“I released my five-song “The Joy Is” EP September 2020 and the second part five-song “In The Journey” EP January 2021, Sammie B. said. 

Throughout the entire project, Sammie B will be performing live and give out merchandise and packages to her supporters. She will also be releasing two music videos, one from each EP. 

“Once I am done with that, I will transition into releasing more singles with visuals the rest of the year and I will continue performing live virtually and hopefully in person as well,” she shared.

How Emilie Kirchgesner Became the All-Around Performer She is Today

Published

on

Some people have already an idea of what they want to do for the rest of their lives. While some make business or hobby out of this vision of themselves, others have also turned it into a career where they get to do what they love and enjoy the advantages of doing so. 

For all-around performer Emilie Kirchgesner, her path in life came to her naturally. 

At a young age, Emilie Kirchgesner already knows what she’s meant to do in life. Since she was three-years-old, she has already been acting, dancing, and singing. 

“I’ve always enjoyed performing and inspiring others around me. Dancing was my escape from darkness–it helped me express myself in ways others didn’t understand. Singing and acting was something I knew I was meant to do. It came naturally to me at a young age,” she said. 

Emilie grew up dancing competitively in every style and trained in several musical theatre intensives in New York and Los Angeles. She trained under numerous Broadway actors and choreographers.  

She was very involved in the arts in high school while completing her Advanced Tap and Advanced 1 Ballet exams.

It’s because of this dedication to her craft that she was able to attend her dream school. After high school, Emilie moved from Saskatoon to Toronto to attend Randolph Academy and was able to perform at Canada’s Wonderland for two seasons. 

Despite already living out her dream at a young age, Emilie recognizes the value of hard work and is engaging herself in projects that will improve herself and her career in the long-run. 

“My goals for this year is finding myself in every situation, working towards being super successful, and working on getting out of my comfort zone,” she said. “I want to be perceived as a positive person who inspires those around me. People who look up to me as an all-around performer. I want to be the best version of myself as a creator.  Someone who isn’t afraid to be different.” 

What She Learned So Far 

As she continues to go further down her chosen career path, Emilie has also learned some valuable lessons that she follows by heart. 

“The values I’ve learned on my journey thus far is staying humble no matter what. Treating everyone around you as an amazing human. I’ve always stood by spreading positive vibes around me instead of living in negativity. Life is too short,” the all-around performer said. 

She added that in her career path, it’s important to stay true to who she is. 

“People are going to hate or love you and it’s ok because you only need to please yourself! It’s ok to feel insecure, show who you truly are,” she said.
