This is not a matter of networking. This is a matter of changing lives.

On Sunday, June 26, 2011 United Colors Of Fashion, Incorporated (UCOF) celebrated the Birthday of one of the most influential women of the world, Mrs. Bisila Bokoko. The celebration took place at a chic restaurant in Chelsea, New York.
Mrs. Bokoko, whom is of African descent, was born and grew up in Spain. She is the epitome of strong women worldwide.
I remember it like it was yesterday, the first time I met Mrs. Bokoko. I was working for an event, where she was listed as an ambassador and her charity was being represented. I never had a chance to meet her prior, and when she walked into the room, her presence drew in attention immediately- not only was she stunning in her evening gown, but glowed. She had a huge smile, which just made you want to approach her and say hi, and so I did. I mean come on now, my brother, Ciano Clerjuste, is a really good friend of hers, I had to take advantage of the opportunity. As a woman, her aura was similar to a queen as her subjects bow in respect only with Mrs. Bokoko´s presence hearts melts in her kindness. I was greeted with the Spanish traditional kiss to the left cheek, and then one to the right.
