Introducing Nafeesah Allen... Girl Friday 8.23.08


Name: Nafeesah Allen

Where You From? Newark, NJ

Where You At?
Harlem

Are You Old Enough To Remember The 80s?
No

What Did You Want To Do When You Were 10 years old?
Be a writer & artist

What do you do now?
I work for the City of New York doing community outreach and emergency preparedness. I'm also a master's student at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, pursuing a concentration in Latin American and Social Policy of Race and Ethnicity.

How would you describe your style?
I wake up, contemplate wearing pyjamas to work, shower and put on what makes me feel good. Footwear matters sometimes... only sometimes... when its between Dunks and heels... Otherwise, I add a scarf and sunglasses and go. I'm just the mannequin.

Who is your alter ego?

King of Queens: so royal, the title hasn't been invented yet. If you could combine the power of the Queen with the stakes of the King, you'd have who/how I aspire to be.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I'm a big fan of HAE (Harriet's Alter Ego), as well as Arm Candy Casa for accessories(http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=42299255569) and Nicacelly for the customs (www.nicacelly.com) and Akintola Hanif for views (www.akintolahanif.com) and
"I can't forget New Jersey!"
