We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Bingham Aka TIFFCO and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
“ FLAWS ARE JEWELS WEAR THEM “ it’s a personal quote that I have ran with all my life. It’s actually the quote I use on my brand DefinePerfectdp. We all have flaws ‘ none of us are perfect. Embrace that! Walk with dignity & keep your head high. This is for everyone across the world. “ “ Flaws are jewels “ just like the jewelry you wear around your neck or even on your hands or wrist. Wear those flaws the same way .. The more you do the more you’ll learn to love yourself eternally.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I want the world to know that WE ARE OMNIPOTENT. We have unlimited power to acknowledge anything . The reason why my brand is called DefinePerfectdp ‘ nothing is perfect. “ Flaws are Jewels wear them “ Embrace that. What makes me different is I’m No striving for people to be just like ME . I’m voicing out for the youth to grow and become them. What makes them perfect is being proud of who YOU ARE & not what people want you to be. That’s what my brand is about . When you have on a DefinePerfectdp shirt on it makes the person reading it reflect back on themselves .. even if they walked in the room with a judge mental
Attitude . Their thoughts will Change once they read your shirt.
“ DEFINE PERFECT “ let that sink. EVEN If you was to buy a multi million dollar home , after having it for so many years the paint won’t look as glamorous as it did like the first day . Better yet, if you bought a car that was new but not Brand New “ why does that matter as long as it’s perfect to you . Nothin is perfect ‘ what make it perfect is the value to YOU.
My journey has had its up’s and downs. I am still learning and taking things for what they are. You can’t put a time limit on when and where you should go. Faith isn’t impossible ‘ just believe and that’s what I’ve been doing.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Born and raised in Los Angeles it’s different spots to try. I’ll honestly take my friend to different food joints depending on their taste buds. It’s so many cities in LA county. I’ll take my friend , JimDandy’s fried chicken , Jordan’s Hot dog’s so many family/private owned businesses that’s been around for years. Tracey’s Belizean , Hungry Joe’s Caribbean food , very declious & affordable. It’s other spots I’ll go is Rick’s Fish one of the best fish markets in town to me. Other urban spots are Fred’s Burgers , A1 burgers , Hawkin Burgers . Outside of the urban spots my favorite is Bossa Nova Italian food towards the Pico/Westwood district . It takes my back to when I used to go to Santa Monica College
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am still in the process as I strive to grow as a independent artist . My plate is full so at times I have no choice but to grasps for air. I want to shout out to my community ‘ the CRENSHAW DISTRICT. Leimert Park Vendors Village as well. I am showered with love & joy around me. People not only are working hard to become bigger & better . They look like myself .. I get to see a reflection of myself . Africa Town. As I keep going through my journey’ I met different people in the world but that’s home. I was that same girl in the Crenshaw district shooting videos & rapping on the Crenshaw Stage or dancing in the Audubon hallways to become a young woman selling her merch & giving gems to the youth.
Omnipotent- having unlimited power to acknowledge anything . DefinePerfectdp.
