About Onyxx: as a person is a precious woman woven in the fabric of love, optimism, passion, and compassion, espousing empathy and understanding, of a true considerate nature. She is a fighter, who has survived great obstacles in her life from overcoming an eating addiction, losing over 100 pounds and alcoholism. Her radio program “Hooked on Onyxx” is a daring and self-reflective look at life, the battles we share; she leads the way as she openly shares her personal struggles. This takes guts; the fear of being ostracized doesn’t dissuade her from her life’s work, to educate all people on the obstacles that each one of us has crossed in this life. Onyxx wants to raise awareness of the negative effects and disabilities from what our past can and will do to us as children and adults. It is very imperative to have and keep positivity, motivation and inspiration in our lives hence the motto of her radio show “Sharing motivation and inspiration through wisdom, experience and music.”
Also just announced: Onyxx will be featured in Bill Dukes up and coming Documentary Light Girls.
