For those who care to know.
Made in California, reared in the Far East,
But rooted in Texas and Tennessee.
I am a Holiday!
Holiday is my father's name given to me at birth, and it was one of five names used while in the U.S. Air Force. As life happens, the root of Holiday has evolved to be known from my Great Father, G-d, as a gentle reminder of whose I am, and who I am.
It's fun and people love saying it--but most of all, it's honorable for me, because it represents family and service. "Holi-day" is the Way I choose to live Life every day. I am simply what some may call a "modern-day renaissance" woman with clear vision.
Holiday has worked in several stratospheres from the (Neighbor-) 'Hood to the White House'. Her media works are featured in The Washington Post, The Chester County Independent, NBC Nightly News, BET, local FOX-5 News, AFRTS, Faces of DC and Sir Faces, U.S. Navy Docu Series, History Channel: Making of the Mob, PBS Baltimore, and others. Her communication portfolio spans through some of the following:
