Oraciones por todos mis amigos de la seguridad en #Barcelona. te amo ❀️πŸ˜ͺ so sad to hear of the attacks in Barcelona. One of my favorite cities. I lived there for a year and a half with my ex husband and we had a wonderful time with some of the most loving people while I modeled in 2011. I hope my friends and colleagues are safe and I am SO tired of the hatred. I want it to stop, please Jesus.

One day I know
When the twighlight last glows
She will return to me
Ever so sweetly
Ever so softly
My beautiful mother -2017 Nikki DuBose

I am truly excited to be working and speaking with the Diamonds Mentoring & Empowerment Program from September 21 - 24 in Montgomery, Alabama for the Women's Conference at the Saints Movement Worship Center International Church. Details here --------> https://nikkidubose.com/events/

As a survivor of childhood abuse (physical, mental, emotional and sexual), by my mother and a male relative, and adult rape, this is a cause that is very close to my heart. People everywhere are hurting and suffering quietly, often with no one that they feel they can turn to because of the trauma related to abuse and the social stigma that surrounds it. Can't wait to let these young people know that there is NO shame, there is no more pain because God loves them, and he has already promised them a new life and a new hope, as is written in His word. Jeremiah 29:11 states: "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, β€œplans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

"Diamonds Mentoring & Empowerment Program
Founder and Director Shemika R. Thomas grew up in Montgomery, Alabama where she faced a lot of adversities. One in particular was molestation that started when she was 7 years old at the hands of an uncle (married into the family) and by her step father at the age of 12.​ She had a vision to start Diamonds Mentoring & Empowering Program to educate, mentor and empower females like herself who have been victims of sexual abuse." #DiamondsMentoring #empowerment #childsexualabuseprevention #education #leadership #publicpolicy #washedaway #speakingevent #nikkidubose #montgomery #alabama #september #events #healing

Tomorrow morning, my little monster turns 1 year old. He arrived home with us at 15wks old from Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles, and it's been an adventure since. Throughout it he has remained charming, sweet, curious, chewy, cuddly and loving. He and his brother mean more to me than I ever could have imagined.
Finn, your mama loves you with her entire heart and more. Zekie and I are so grateful to have you in our lives/bed/faces-when-you-want-attention. We hope to find you another sibling or two from DRLA and Dachshunds and Friends Rescue in the years to come.

Finn is a therapy pup in training, and if you're inclined to support his work, please check out SoulPaws. We hope to bring him and other therapy pups to those in need.

Proud to send in my πŸ“ support of California Assembly Bill 249, the DISCLOSE Act, to keep dark πŸ’° out of politics and show who really pays for political ads. I hope you'll show your support, too, as corrupt money and non-transparency affects every area of our lives, whether that's health, transportation, education, and so forth. Go to yesfairelections.org to find out more and how you can get involved and use your voice for change!

Yummy dinner with my bff @mr.antoniodspears πŸ‘Œ

I stare to escape
this life
But your face
Never leaves my eyes
It's haunting
My dreams
Are formed
By your breath

I know I said no posts but this post means a lot. I was in Starbucks in Encino because my dogs stay at the babysitter in Santa Clarita and I had to make a quick stop. A lady kept looking at me and she pulled me over. I remembered that awkward feeling when someone keeps staring at me from my modeling days. Her name was Judith; she said that she has known me from modeling since I was 16! "Ok..." I thought. "There's no way." I shared with her about my memoir, Washed Away, and what I'm doing, traveling around the United States, speaking and advocating. She was very excited.
We proceeded to talk about the modeling business and how dangerous it can be because it is not regulated. She shared about young people she knows who are in the business and in danger due to pressures to lose weight and emotional and mental instabilities. She then shared about her journey with bipolar disorder and I thanked her for her honesty and willingness to be open.

I hope she enjoys my memoir, #washedaway, and shares it with anyone who is thinking about getting into entertainment and who may have a mental illness or addiction. There truly is no shame.
