Exquisite Exclusive: Bakari Sellers


Written by: Lachondria Taylor

In another Exquisite Exclusive, we got a chance to talk with political candidate, Bakari Sellers, who recently ran for South Carolina Lt. Governor. One of the youngest candidates to run, Mr. Sellers teaches us a lesson that I’m sure we are all familiar with:

Age ain’t nothing but a number.

Sellers brings old school ideals and values and mixes with his modern approach to politics, which has worked out well for him. At just 30 years old, Sellers has a lengthier political resume than most older politicians now. He’s made history as the youngest member of the state House of Representatives in 2006. When the odds have been against him, for I’m sure most of his career due to his age, he fought back and stayed focused. Although he may not have come out on top in the November 4th election, I’m sure that he will continue to make his presence known in politics and in the community.

With his impressive track record so far, hopefully his story was serve as inspiration for someone else. Don’t let your age create a boundary for you to follow your dreams or do what you desire. Let it give you strength, use it to your advantage, and be great. Check out our pre-2014 election interview with him inside! Continue reading

Written by: Kimberly Bowman
