The Babes


Everyone calls me D, I am twenty-four years old and reside on the Westbank of New Orleans. I graduated from Xavier University in May of 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology Pre Med and a Minor of Chemistry in the pursuit of becoming an OBGYN. My true passion is women's health and mentoring young women. Besides studying, I enjoy the delightful, flavorful, and spicy food New Orleans have to offer; I'm a food blogger on instagram(@dijonyybehungry). I enjoy picking out the restaurants so the Babes and I can catch up and laugh.


For short I go by "Wes" I am twenty-three years old, and graduated from Xavier University of Louisiana in May of 2019. Post graduation, in August, I moved to Newark, New Jersey fulfilling a year of service for AmeriCorps. The ward I'm repping is the 7th Ward, and my guilty pleasure is a coconut snowball with condensed milk and a side of Hot Cheetos topped with nacho cheese. I enjoy hanging and riding around the city with my Babes.


Most people know me by "Yan" I am twenty-two years old; I attend Southern University of New Orleans majoring in Social Work. I was raised in New Orleans and I love putting on for my city! I am passionate about helping people, and directing them closer to their God-ordained purpose. You can also catch me on the runway, I'm a model and love being in front of the camera. In my free time, I spend quality time having fun and traveling with the Babes.

I also like to go by the name "Chingz"but only about two people actually respects that. I am twenty-one years old, I grew up in Violet, LA; which is located on the outskirts of New Orleans where everybody is "ya cousin". I am currently a senior Math major at Xavier University of Louisiana, and I truly love seeing people living in their purpose. You can probably catch me eating some bomb food somewhere in the city, and vibing to something featuring Drake. I'm sooo blessed to have such genuine people in my life and to be starting this chapter with my best Babes.
