Cover Contest Winner "Hustler of the Week"
CONGRATULATIONS LAKIA JOHNSON FOR WINNING THE COVER
Lakia Johnson, Founder and CEO of Beauty On The Go, a mobile beauty and spa company that provides manicures, pedicures, facials, makeup, crowns and robes to young ladies and their friends on their birthday, is native of Cleveland, Ohio.
“We make them feel like little princesses & like royalty”, says Lakia. I enjoy doing this because I realized it’s never too early for girls to be mentored, inspired or to be taught self-love & hygiene. My goal is to inspire young ladies to celebrate their beauty & uniqueness.”
Lakia is very optimistic, adventurist and outgoing. She can sing and dance, and she loves trying new things. She was born to stand out, not to blend in. Her goal everyday is to do more than just exist.
Lakia entered Ohio’s Internationally known Author, Jameel Davis’s book cover contest for his upcoming anticipated book, “In Between These Sheets” and was selected by Davis’s panel of judges to appear on the front cover.
“I like to involve real people, especially a deserving black woman from my community in my work. It makes the process of creating a book much more exciting. Lakia’s beautiful features alone didn’t qualify her for the cover. My team chose her because she’s a deserving woman who will represent my work well. She was chosen based off her character, personality, her service to the community and how well the opportunity to appear on the cover of my book can benefit her, her family and her dreams.
As the featured model on my new book, Lakia will be recognized by thousands of people for her art and contributions, as her photo, biography and business information will be included in the front of each print and digital copy of the book.
I am excited that we have selected Lakia Johnson as my book cover model. She is nothing less than amazing.”
