I feel like we’ve grown into something much more and I’m excited to share that with those who aren’t aware”, she says. Kai also says that many women like her mother Elaine Lovett, Anita Marshall, Essie Golden, ChardlineChanel-Faitea , Nadia Aboulhosn , Precious Victoria Lee and Joie Fulani inspired her to embrace who she is and she can only hope to inspire young women like they’ve inspired her.
