Arrival Of the 2nd Annual Influencer Awards

Arrival Of the 2nd Annual Influencer Awards


Jackie Watson, the French Reporter was on the red carpet at the 2nd Annual Influencer Awards event, held in Bel Air, CA. The Influencer Awards, formerly known as “i100,” and founded by Jessie Imundi, benefits numerous charities that assist victims in human trafficking.

The event recognizes individuals who have established a significant influence via the utilization of traditional and social media.

Jackie had the wonderful privilege of speaking with American actor and singer, James Maslow. Maslow has been instrumental in helping to fight human trafficking. He continues to use his platform to shed light on this issue through his music, videos and charity work. In addition, he helped found “Mission Save Her” along with Reggie Benjamin and Eric Benet. In 2017, Maslow released his song, “Cry” as a tribute to all victims of human trafficking.

Jackie also spoke with award-winning LA dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman who believes that human-trafficking is more prevalent in this country than anybody knows. He does not believe we are doing enough. American actress Amber Martinez believes this should not be happening in this day and time. Singer Rachele Royale believes that the only way to help is to educate people and make them aware of what is going on.

American blogger and founder of A-List Diet & Fitness™ Tia Walker actually found herself in a situation in India where she got in the wrong car and was driven two hours away, locked in a room with no windows, no running water, and a padlock on the door. But, by the grace of God, Tia was able to escape the situation.

All in all the event was a success and we were glad to be a part of it. Human-trafficking is a real issue not only in the U.S. but in many other countries. We are thankful to our celebrities and to all who are helping this cause.

In addition to helping fight this cause, our celebrity pals had a few words of advice for the younger generation: Rachele Royale advises kids to, ‘Focus on your schoolwork and stay off of your phones.’ Joy Villa wants kids to know that ‘violence is not the answer. It is all about love, peace and communication.’ B. Johnson believes that the younger generation needs to learn the fundamentals of life and focus on their education. We couldn’t agree more!
