As I sit here thinking of what to type My mind is flooded with memories of the last 10 years. I still can’t believe that it’s been a decade since I worked for an outside employer. My life has changed so much, in 2006 when I started portraying the character of Sexy Sapphire I was just a 24 year old wild child. I had no self esteem, I hated Myself.
10 years later I look in the mirror and see a totally different person. I am so calm and stable these days. No more wild child, no more sleeping around and partying like crazy. No more low self esteem. Before Sexy Sapphire I had never been further than the family farm in Virginia. I created My first Myspace page as Sexy Sapphire in May 2006, By September of 2006 I was out with a millionaire for dinner out of town.
December2006 I was In Colorado with the concert promoter who had put on the Money In The Bank tour with Lil Scrappy and Young Buck. January 2007 we were back in Colorado, this time at the very posh resort, The Broadmoor, My life had changed totally. I was also starting to play online on My webcam.
Webcamming led Me to My biggest break in the business. I had gotten pretty popular on a busy cam site and was pulling in hundreds a week on cam. I saw an ad on Craigslist looking for models to represent a domain name business and radio station in Vegas at a convention. I just knew I wasn’t what they were looking for. I didn’t have the body of a model, I wasn’t as pretty as a lot of the girls in the industry. Hell I was just a little chick from the hood, I knew I had no chance so I decided to apply anyway. I was initially turned down after a phone interview and told I would be kept in mind for future projects.
I accepted that L and went on about My business. A week later I was headed into the subway tunnel when My cell rang. It was the guy who I had spoken to about Vegas, he asked if I was still interested i said of course. I was scheduled to leave in FOUR days. It was VERY short notice. I had just days to sign the contracts and fax them back, buy the things I needed and pack. By the time I got the things I needed I had $50 left in My pockets. That needed to last Me SEVEN days in Vegas.
Nothing was stopping Me… I was going. My contract guaranteed Me round trip travel, all meals provided, residence at a condo for 7 days, transportation anywhere I needed to go. All I had to do was show up and promote the company. I got to Vegas and everything was as said. I was offered the opportunity to make extra money by promoting the domain name business while I was doing the promotions for the radio station. I sold some domains to the guy who owned Clips4sale not even knowing who he was. I accepted a job that would pay Me NOTHING but gain Me a wonderful experience. I walked away with $1300 cash and a great experience. Even better, I never had to do one real photo shoot or have sex or anything. It was all promotions and partying. The food was excellent, I shared My condo with a Penthouse photographer and a Cyber Playboy model. I took a chance and it paid off big time.
I made so many connections in Vegas that I came home and was able to really make some moves that wouldn’t have been possible before the trip. Suddenly I was being booked out of town almost regularly. I was getting gifts and money sent to Me all the time, My fan base was steady growing as was My confidence. I got bold. I was into bondage and fetishes and all the websites I saw were full of white girls. There weren’t any Black fetish models and I couldn’t understand. I’d use that button at the bottom and contact the webmaster and tell them their site was awesome but I bet their viewers would love a woman who looked like Me. Many took the bait, suddenly I was the only Black girl on multiple websites that had only showcased white women previously. Then I discovered facesitting and started being booked for foot fetishes. I was on.
From late 2007 through the middle of 2010 I made XXX videos with My two boyfriends Bucky Pipes and Markus. When Markus and I split I stopped making them because I couldn’t imagine doing those things on video with anyone I wasn’t in love with. I continued to make solo and fetish videos through 2015. In December 2010 I was declared legally disabled and shifted My focus again.
I couldn’t do as much and at the time I was extremely sick so I couldn’t travel as much either. I told everyone I would get published in magazines and start really making a name as a model now. People laughed. I did something I had never done before, paid TWO of the most known photographers to shoot Me. From one of those shoots I had My first images published in a magazine. The other shoot people still rave about the photos to this day.
Since I paid for photos in the spring of 2011 I’ve NEVER had to pay a photographer again. Those shoots solidified the idea that I was more than just a webcam girl or amateur porn chick. The photos showed people that even with My diminutive stature I shot big, just as big as the normal sized girls.
I got published in My first magazine in spring of 2011 and to date have been featured as a model on the cover of two magazines, on the cover of a book and I’ve been featured inside more magazines than I can count. I’ve also been featured model model of the week, model of the month and more online.
My next ambition was to get My writing noticed. I have been writing My whole life and as I maintained this website since 2007 I’ve dropped some of My poetry and short stories here. I was offered the opportunity to have one of My erotic stories published in 2012. That feature in Eighty6 Blvd led to a partnership that has maintained to this day. I have written for all but one issue of Eighty6 Blvd and I’m happy to be on the team. I think I have the best gig, not only do I get to write what My heart desires but I get to do the cover and celebrity interviews quite often. Through Eighty6 Blvd I’ve interviewed Nyomi Banxxx, a Playboy Playmate ( Shani Hollywood) and a reality t.v. star, Brave Williams.
Writing for Eighty6 Blvd led to many other writing opportunities. I have a monthly column in BADD Magazine and have had My work featured in many other urban and independent magazines. That led to Me being hired as a paid blogger for The Urban Twist. I’ve been LOVING that. I spend about 50% of My time writing now. I’ve even written My first two books using the erotic stories that I had written for magazines.
I felt unfulfilled not being as active in the entertainment business so I started a talent promotion business and website. I love helping others shine and showcase their talents. In a year the site has done very well I’ve interviewed reality t.v. stars, singers, photographers, authors and more. I have a resource area and also write articles giving tips and advice. It’s My baby and I’m proud of it. Have you checked it out? It’s Sapphire Spotlight On Talent.
I’ve taking on some new responsibilities now, with the talent promo business I stepped My promotions game up and am also booking people now at times. I just can’t stop chasing My goals and looking for ways to make money off My hobbies and interests. Later this year I am launching a food and cooking website.
As I sit here I think back to April of 2006, one month before I created Sexy Sapphire. I was a young single mother working at a dead end administrative assistant job. When that Job went out of business in September of 2007 I was devastated. Turns out they were a fraudulent company and I had been there three years. There was no one to give Me a reference or even prove I had worked the last three years. I felt lost.
I made a decision then and there that I would chase the fantasy of being a model/entertainer although I knew NOT ONE person who was an entertainer. I didn’t know how to do ANYTHING on the computer other than play games on yahoo and work Microsoft Office Suite. 10 years later I built this website from scratch just as I built My talent promotion site. I have not had a manager since 2007 yet I have managed to make a real name for Myself and gain an international fan base that has supported Me for 10 years. People who have seen me grow and evolve. People who have stuck with Me even as I gave up the things that made them notice Me in the first place.
In 2010 when I stopped making XXX videos there were many who told Me I would never be anything more than a chick who sucked dick online. I new they were wrong and I proved that to them. I look back and there are some people who were either around before Me or started in the business at the same time I did and they’re nobodies today. I feel sorry for some of them because they’re so invested in it emotionally they won’t even back down when it’s evident they should. Evolution is inevitable and I think that has been what has sustained Me for this long. I am very diverse and luckily I have had the opportunity to share My diversity with so many people. For that I am grateful.
I’ve started to share My life story via My “The Sexy Sapphire Chronicles” video series on youtube. I have 7 videos up so far, each 45 minutes or so. I am starting with who I really am and sharing for the first time the real person behind Sapphire in full detail. I suggest you check them out. Eventually I will catch up to present day time. These videos are a prelude to the memoir I am planning to start writing later this year. I’m also planning to become a motivational speaker soon. I want to help others achieve the happiness I have.
