Hi Perlu-ians, LaKesha here - pleasure to meet you!


My goal is not only to service amazing talent & exceptional brands, but to marry this power couple to meaningful work! A true multi-hyphenate, I thrive in collaborative team environemnts where brand partnerships, content strategy, creative copy, and all things influencer marketing are taking flight.


I lead with empathy. Second only to an affinity for creative marketing is my advocacy for mental wealth, emotional health and the normalization of self-care in all ecosystems. Ever-working to curate sacred spaces of connection, scholarship, wellness and growth, I breathe life more intentionally into projects where the product, messaging and/or service makes a positive impact on the world.

My ability to conceive, organize & execute a vision is evident through my entrepreneurial work as CEO & Founder of:

  1. Bella Perri, a mommy-daughter collaboration with my daughter all about promoting awareness & ending the stigmas associated with mental illness, therapy/counseling, medication, mindfulness & other holistic approaches to treatment; and

  2. MentaliTeez, a conscious collaboration of graphic tees all about the promotion & awareness of mental health.

❤My self-care Sunday with sisters from other misters, coverers from other mothers - & what a beautiful vibe it was! Thank you #BrunchWithEden #EdenBodyWorks

🖤 D Y I N G • T O • L I V E More than our beloved Black Panther, @chadwickboseman was a real life example of how: 1. You never know the bags people are carrying, even when it looks like their hands are free. Be kind to everyone. 2. Bravery is a verb... it requires intentional action🎬 & courageous movement. 3. Perseverance in the face of fear is where you will discover your greatest purpose & highest self. 4. Character is a choice. Choose wisely. 5. People may not always remember what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel. 6. Representation matters, & no matter what "they" say or do, your BLACK IS always BEAUTIFUL. 7. Your attitude determines your altitude... not your condition or circumstance. 8. Mindset can take you far or hold you back. Free your mind & the rest will follow. 9. Do what you love, love what you do, but most importantly, do love. 10. Heavy is the head that wears the crown... but also - Keep your head up! #ChadwickBoseman #OurBeloved #BlackPanther #RestInPower #LongLiveTheKing #WakandaForever #SuperHerosNeverDie #MarvelStudios #RepresentationMatters #BlackExcellence #BlackRoyalty #BlackIsBeautiful #CancerSucks #EffCancer #LiveLikeYoureDying #DoItNow #FaithOverFear #KeepGoing But also... #Heartbroken #ItsOkayNotToBeOkay #MentalHealthMatters #BlackMentalHealthMatters #SelfCareMatters #GriefIsReal #HealingIsAProcess #RespectTheProcess #Feel #Breathe #BeStillAndKnow

CLOSING ❌ OUR ❌ DOORS . ...but not our hearts❤ . The wake of our current global crisis has brought about so much change, uncertainty, & loss.

G R O W • B E L L A • G R O W . I. Am. So. Uncomfortable. I could SCREAM! . Truly. I feel completely out of my element. . The buzz that comes with being in the spotlight feels so overwhelmingly foreign it hurts. I'm more at home playing in the background ..blending into the backdrop. . I hear a familiar song when I'm the supportive cast ...can recite all the words to being of service ...hum every melody to performing behind the scenes. . But alas! I'm no longer being permitted to play it small. My ancestors have called me out, into the open, into the light, where EVERYTHING can be exposed, examined, & equipped for greatness. . But don't cry for me, Argentina! Every awkward experience, every unnerving jagged edge, I asked for it. . I called it by name & regulated my heartbeat to match its vibration. I removed people & things that interfered with that frequency. . I hold myself accountable for all spaces I find myself in moving forward. And I'm uncomfortably comfortable with all-a-dat! . . #GrowthMindset🌱 #MentalGrowth #GrowingPain #SpiritualMaturity #Evolve #Evolution #LevelUp #GrowthHappens #ShiftHappens #DiscomfortZone #DiscomfortIsGrowth #UncomfortablyComfortable . #mentalhealthlove #selflove #selfcare #selfawareness #selfesteem #mentalhealth #mentalwealth #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthadvocacy's hard to see yourself as you truly are. Confessional case in point: When I first saw my photos, I was mortified😣 As someone who doesn't spend a lot of time in the mirror, I was obviously delusional about my #reflection & harboring some very unrealistic expectations about how this would all turn out - - Building a business [or 2] via social media mediums, I spend a lot of time perusing some amazing IG pages • full of beautiful women • in beautiful places • striking beautiful poses • adorning beautiful garments - exuding, well, beauty. I must have thought those imagined attributes would somehow #MagicallyAppear in my photos because boy, was I surprised to see - ME... All the heartbreak I've experienced the past few months, the symptoms of depression, the lack of sleep, the financial woes, the anxiety, the confusion, the loneliness & solitude, the growing pains & battle scars, the self-doubt & lack of was all I could see looking back at ME... I immediately thought, "How am I ever going to share these with the world?" I made several attempts to do "damage control" [right, @katieiswinnen & @ashleyatpandp 😭] & at every turn I heard - "You're BEAUTIFUL ... You look STUNNING ...Your pictures are AMAZING!" Needless to say, I didn't believe it at first because I didn't see it...and I didn't see it because sometimes, it's hard to see yourself as you truly are.🖤 But here's the thing I learned, don't expect a fancy camera, a bomb photographer [@msayles], a creative director [@lauren.b.jonas] an edit/filter, #flawless makeup, or a glamorous outfit [@partandparcelhq] to do for you what you won't do for yourself. Love of self is an inside job & beauty is ALWAYS in the eye of the beholder - Today, I choose to become the beholder so I can always see ME as ME! And by ME I mean #BEAUTIFUL [cheesy smile & all😁😉]. . #WhereMyGirlsAt #PartAndParcel #GirlGang #ConfidenceIsPower #PartAndParcelTalent #TheAgency #ModelingAgency #NowBooking #SuperModel #PlusModel #PlusFashion #PlusSizeModel #PlusSizeFashion #PlusSizeModels #PlusSizeFashions #CurvyModel #CurvyFashion #CurvyModels #CurvyPlus #BodyPositivity #PlusToPlus #AWorldWherePlusThrives
