I CANT BREATHE RIGHT NOW.
Do you see these two women? Well, on the left is Holly Robinson Peete and on the right is Gelila Assefa-Puck.
They’re both amazing, powerful, inspirations and philanthropists.
Holly is an actress/talk show host that helps thousands of kids suffering with autism here in the U.S and Gelila is fashion designer/wife of Wolfgang Puck and also ETHIOPIAN. She’s very active in helping children in Ethiopia get a proper education.
Well, tonight, they’re both being honored at Essence’s Art of Giving event in NYC and since Holly follows one of my twitter accounts, I messaged her saying:
So cool that you and Mrs. Assefa-Puck were celebrated together! As an Ethio-American, both of you are my inspirations!
You should try our cuisine, my uncle Phillipos’ restaurant is at 650 10th Ave in NYC :) -Aggi
Well Holly replied with THIS:
I didn’t even think she’d ever read/reply to my message cause she follows like 1000+ people and they probably all dm her like crazy, so the fact she replied is one thing. But one of the most powerful Ethiopians in America knows I exist so that’s another amazing PLUS. Technology and Twitter are so fucking amazing.
I hope they check out my uncle’s restaurant! Now THAT would be awesome! I’m still having a mini-heart attack… This is exactly a week after Sophia Bush tweeted me..
What’s air again?
This can’t be healthy.
