I want to Thank my Mother, Oona'o who shows me unconditional love and understanding daily, who instilled in both my sister (Kiki) and I, that we could accomplish whatever we worked hard for by focusing on a dream and implementing it. My mom has always told me to think outside of the box, to question authority, to challenge myself and others and that set rules are not always the best guides simply because someone else says so…. This along with my life lessons as well as the strength I pull from my Name, Alethia (meaning Truth), lead me to the name RebelliousBella…not to break rules just because I can, but to look at things through my eyes not just through others, to have vision, to sometimes go against the grain, to sometimes be unpopular and to know, this is ok….
To my dad, Reginald who always supports me and shows me that though I may not always be right, I am heard and he shows me the difference. To my Mother n law Ann(Ma P) who always Says
“I believe in you”.
To the Strong women in my life, and there are many of you, yet all are not mentioned, I thank you, you are women who have encouraged me, supported me and have pushed me to make my ideas a reality, we must continue to do this for each other. I have always had a dream to own a boutique, and with the new world of Social Media I decided to do so via this Online Store that is accessible to people all over the country.
I have been Inspired by women who own their own businesses, from my visit to Atlanta, Ga. years ago during Kiki’s first Season of Taping the Tyler Perry Show -“For Better or Worse”, we visited and purchased from Tags, Kandi Burress is the Owner, to my good friend Kim Owner of Crystals on the Rocks in Nyack, NY she always pushes me to express my creativity & be my own Boss.
And My friend and sister, Christine of Christine’s Unique Fashions who just celebrated her 1 year anniversary in her new location in Garnerville, NY–she truly inspires me in many ways…I Thank Shelley Roxanne who has been in my life for over twenty years and always reminds me, “The best is yet to come”. To Lisa-Marie, who helps keep me in shape and supports me daily. To Fie for my daily inspirational text (smile) and always willing to listen. To Candy, my friend & sister, thank you for always having my back...unconditional love & support..To my Makeup Artist Joseph Xade. Thank You for making a sistah look Fierce.
To my husband, Patrick, who always believes in me and makes sure I have what I need to succeed, my daughter, Alexis who allows me to show her that whatever you set your mind to do-can be done..just as she is doing as she prepares for her great future, And being my model....my son, Christopher, who shares his vision with this site & who always knows how to calm me…..he is my Woosa!...
To my sister, Kianya Kiki Renee Haynes, my best friend, some say my twin (though I’m the older, wiser one-lol), there are no words, no gifts, no monetary amounts that could ever express my love, appreciation and admiration I have for you…You give of yourself unconditionally and without limit, you are a daily Gift to me.
I Thank you & I love you.. you are my biggest cheerleader, and I, yours…Not too bad for two girls from EO…Mom did good…(smile)
I thank God each day, even though I am not very Religious, I do talk to Him daily, we argue and in the end, he always shows me the way…always….
