Lay Lay, performer, influencer, and most importantly, a mother. Honors SQR with her presence. Enjoy
“It’s a long time comin.” Blessing our podcast for the first time since 2017, Paterson, New Jersey native Lay Lay revisits our lab to discuss her life as a performer, model, influencer, and most importantly - being a mother. Cut from the most special cloth, Lay Lay began performing as young as two years old, and made her way to the airwaves of New York City at the ripe age of four. From the start, Lay Lay knew she was different than her peers. Throughout her adolescence, she won trophies at Black music expos and reveled in her energy dancing and singing with her mother in their home. Her many years of experience grew her confidence beyond performing and entertaining; it is now something that flows through her veins in everything that she does. Despite any pressure throughout her adolescence, Lay Lay has stayed determined to continue on the right path. Even with unexpected blessings such as being a teenage mother, she remained focused and knew that she was destined for greatness. The trophy of her determination is her self-owned dance company, “Slay 12”, that she built from the bottom up. Before anything else, her daughter remains number one in her life and serves as a big inspiration for a future generation where other people’s opinions don’t dictate the capacity of one’s dreams. From the words of her daughter, “she’s the goat.” Enjoy. www.sqrpodcast.com www.facebook.com/sqrpodcast https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN2YWGURe_tTvQLiUDcuDGA https://www.instagram.com/sqrpodcast/

Reverend Yogi, aka Kim Copeland shares your passion for Life, Yoga & the Spiritual Flow
“I was open to it with no expectation,” states Kimberly Copeland, A.K.A. Reverend Yogi, as she explains her passion for yoga. An ordained Reverend and Hatha (Vinyasa) Yoga teacher, Copeland describes the mantras she lives by and how she’s applied them to her great tragedies and triumphs in her life’s journey. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, she is the eldest of three siblings (and the only daughter) of two hardworking middle-class parents who established the following family motto: “Each generation would introduce its successor to a higher plane of living.” Carrying the weight of this knowledge throughout her adolescence, she admits there was a season of rebellion during which she battled identity issues; what it meant to be a black girl, and how she fought to find herself amongst a field of people who were different than her. Copeland also shares the most intimate moments that define her life; such as reciting Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman” to her mother, and the journey of healing after losing a loved one. Putting all of her faith in God, she explains how He has allowed her to heal by teaching Yoga and incorporating scripture. Described by Squirrel as “transparent, vulnerable, and real,” Copeland’s journey inspires and shows what it is like to be human. We hope you enjoy her story.

Nyugen Smith @bundlehouse - Interdisciplinary Artist (Our Most Colorful Podcast Yet)
“Pretending was too much work”, as expressed by interdisciplinary artist Nyugen Smith, a hybrid of both Haitian and Trinidadian blood. He graced SQR Podcast with transparency as he delved into his upbringing in Trinidad; including his cultural adjustment after moving back to America during his most formative years, how art chose him, and the visual and physical influences he attributes toward embracing his own aesthetics. Coming from a broken family in Trinidad to attend a boarding school in Pennsylvania, he desperately tried to fit in. This even included trying to lose his innate accent. Realizing it was easier to be himself, he eventually found acceptance in college via a group of Haitians- an ancestry he was far disconnected from (an emotion better heard and felt at the end of the podcast in his spoken word). Smith, a scholar with straight A’s and B’s as a Political Science major, had his schoolwork all mapped out; until he took two pivotal art classes to fill up his electives. Those two classes flipped his world upside down. Art became his language. Soon after, he was invested in rapping, theater, painting and sculpture, and his evolution since has been anything but dull. From traveling to study art in Florence, Italy, to selling his art to college administrators and eventually hosting his own art show, Smith says it’s all about his support system. Without support from peers, friends, and family, he claims he would be nowhere. His whole life story is wrapped into this podcast, as he leaves us with the biggest jewel on this episode: “For those who are struggling to find themselves, and to find that thing in life that makes you want to get up every day, I wish they find that thing because there’s nothing like it.” With his work currently on display at Perez Art Museum, and being part of The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art, this is just the tip of the iceberg for Nuygen Smith. We hope you appreciate his narrative as much as we did. Enjoy.

Don Reid stops by SQR Podcast on his U.S. press tour from Jamaica. Enjoy this authentic story from an authentic talent.
Born and raised in Clermont St. Ann, Jamaica to a mother who gave him away at 2 years old, Don Reid had no immediate family members. A poor, malnourished little boy, he found himself being mothered by Miss Louise (Miss Lu), a complete stranger. Don reflects on his past, including going to Clermont All-Age School; which was approximately 4 miles from his house. He walked it bare-footed as he had no shoes. In his small community, he was known as the little boy that was given away. However, he was extremely bright and well read. A spelling bee champion and involved in the schools’ Drama Club, Don Reid did not allow his circumstances to dictate his future. Don shares of his 1st unconditional love and support system, which came from Rev. Tuller, the local pastor from his church. “I’m proud of you”, words that stuck with Don as he reflects on the impact of that relationship; Rev Teller treated him like a son. High school was a complete 180 degree turn for Don. The onslaught of puberty & the assumed freedom to attend or not to attend high school had him on a path to failure. Don recalls a high school friend who embraced him unfortunately was a certified loser. Due to his influence on Don, they would ‘go to school and do everything; except go to school’. Certified the class dunce, he was still able to finish 19th out 40 students. After a stern and sincere discussion with the principal, coupled with the threat of Miss Lu’s belt, Don straightened up and became a straight-A student. Don shares his journey into the medical field via a threat, and his transition into the banking profession. The undeserved care and advice from the people God has placed so strategically throughout his life allowed Don to confidently walk through all doors that were opening. “Throughout all these experiences, I have learned to laugh at myself”, among the many jewels dropped by this ‘little boy that was given away’, now known as Don Reid.

The product of inter-racial parents who divorced at an early age, China was raised by her mother and influenced by her grandmother, as her dad battle with a severe cocaine habit. She recalls the honesty of her mother, who admitted her sexuality, and the effect it had on her and her brother. Her journey through elementary and middle school was plagued with bullying, being the only biracial child in a predominantly black school district. However, this all changed once puberty hit in high school- when girls envied what she had and guys appreciated it. A lack of focus on her grades led China to accumulate a 1.8 GPA and a visit to school by her mom. A stern warning and determination to step up her game resulted in a remarkable 4.1 GPA upon graduation. “I just want to be a star,” the catalyst for China’s move from her safe and secure life in Portland to the unknown territory and possibilities that awaited her in Los Angeles, California. Enjoy China Marie’s vivid recap of her journey to Compton (corner of Watts and Alameda) to the perfect room for rent in a stash house. It was not long before her instincts led her to Manhattan Beach, where she lived in her Mercury Sable for three weeks in a middle school parking lot. An experience she kept from her mom, as she was unwilling to return to Portland and follow the status quo. Eventually, China found a place and a steady flow of income. Listen as she shares her introduction into the music industry via a video shoot for rapper Too Short, whom she met and impressed. Contrary to the conventional route, China created her own path to get her music and talent out there.

A trip to New York City came about once China realized the music scene in L.A. was more conducive to established artists.
