My name is Alafaka Opuiyo. I'm the owner of Dynamic Public Relations based in Washington D.C. I've never been successful with men. It's never worked out for me. At at point it shattered my self-worth and my self-esteem and I wanted to commit suicide. I felt that why was I having such difficulties. Why was this so hard for me? And I found, I fell in love with what I do for a living. As a publicist, when I get my clients interviews and get them coverage and get them out there, it gives me an adrenaline rush. So, the love that I was trying to seek from being in a relationship and dating, I have abandoned that and focused all my love and my energy in my business. So, that's what keeps me going. That's what keeps me, keeps me happy. That's what makes me whole as a person.
