Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

99-Year-Old Woman Who Graduated From College of the Canyons: ‘This Is My Dream Come True’

A 99-year-old Agua Dulce woman earned cheers and tears on Friday when she celebrated graduating from College of the Canyons before turning a century old.

Doreetha Daniels has been studying at the community college in Santa Clarita since 2009, determined to earn her degree.

“99, here I am,” she said at the podium, garnering cheers from the audience Friday.

“I accomplished what I wanted to do, and this is my dream come true,” she said after the ceremony.

Her grandchildren, who were working on masters’ degrees, inspired her, Daniels said.

Her son said she persevered through her education despite suffering a couple of strokes and losing her driver’s license.

Relatives shed tears of pride after the graduation ceremony where Daniels was awarded an associate’s degree in social sciences.

College officials said Daniels struggled sometimes — especially with computer literacy — at a campus where most students are 18 to 24 years old.

But she just worked harder, according to the college. Twice a week before class, she studied, did her homework and worked with tutors at the college’s tutoring center.

She was touted as “one of the most dedicated and hardworking students” in the statistics class, the college said in a news release.

“Doreetha is resilient. She demonstrates grit,” said counselor Liz Shaker. “She inspires students.”

Asked for advice to younger generations, Daniels said: “Don’t give up. Do it. Don’t let anybody discourage you. Say that, ‘I’m going to do it,’ and do it for yourself.”
