Meet Ladyy Smith

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ladyy Smith.

Hi Ladyy, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I am 29. I’m from Plainfield NJ. My birthday is Jan. 17. moved to Georgia when I was 13. I been singing since I was a, I wanna say eight but I’m not too sure. My father was a big influence on my singing. When me and my siblings were younger, we used to have talent shows. He passed away three years ago. I’ve spent a lot of my childhood in treatment centers because of my behavior. I was adopted at a young age. I didn’t meet my biological family til I got in my 20’s. I was married, met my husband at 19 had my daughter at 21 he passed away when she was eight months which was a very hard time for me. I was 22 at the time. When he passed, I had to learn how to have a job never worked. A few years later, I ended up involved with the boyfriend I have now. The road was still hard for me made a lot of unhealthy decisions. I’ve been off n on with my music but it’s always been in my heart. I’m 29 now n I’m at the stage where I’m learning to love myself n be me no matter what anyone else says. Going after my music and my modeling. I’m taking a chance on me.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Definitely not smooth at all but it made me into who I am today. I’ve struggled with my self-worth. I’ve struggled with losing my husband at a young age while having my daughter. I struggled with my belief in my talents. I struggled with just being me and being okay to be me.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
My full-time job is a mother first and for most. But I work at Walmart while learning to step into my purpose which is my music and modeling. What sets me apart from others is I’m me. My story is only mine. I might have a similar story to someone else but my story is mine. Also, the fact to just keep going no matter what has happened to me.

We’d love to hear about how you think about risk taking?
Risk taking is scary very SCARY. I’m taking a risk right now. But it definitely is worth it. You never know till you take a risk. But you must know that there are healthy risk taking and unhealthy risk taking. Everything has a bad and a good it depends on which one you take.
