Regina “Sunshine” Robinson’s Tribute to the Anniversary Issue
Some assignments are arranged…others are divine. From the moment I met Lynita Mitchell-Blackwell, she has been the connector to so many things that are divine. BOLD Favor Magazine is no exception to that.
I remember being told that Brianna Lewis Screen would be writing a story on me and thinking that Lynita must know something about me that I don’t know. Because in my mind, there wasn’t anyone who wanted to read an article about me. I had such a beautiful experience with Brianna and realized that the blessing was getting to meet her. Then I read the article, and I loved it.
From there, Lynita asked me to write my first article. I thought, “Who? Me?” It was so far out of my box that I felt like I was across the street watching her smash my box to pieces. But I did it because she asked me to, and I respect her too much to disappoint her. And it was an amazing experience.
Most recently, Lynita approached me about becoming the Editor in Chief for BOLD Plus Magazine and rocked my whole world. My initial thought was, “No way,” but what I said was let me think about it. The more I thought about it, the more I realized fear was what was holding me back. Once I acknowledged my issue, I immediately reached out to her and said, Yes.”
My connections with BOLD Favor Magazine have all been ones that have challenged me and caused me to grow. But the reason I have become a part of BOLD Favor is the love and encouragement I have received. I know this is a family that will hold me accountable to achieve and will cheer for me all the way. And that’s something we all need.
