Yandy and Rich Dollaz: Love And Hip-Hop New York’s Entrepreneurs
Yandy on raising her son without Mendeecees:
Yandy: It’s harder, I don’t know what its like not to raise your child on your own because its kinda what I’ve done since I’ve had him. Mendeecees left us when he was six months old so I’ve been doing it for awhile, its all I know. It taught me time management, it taught me how to prioritize better because he’s my priority and everything falls in line after that. Its definitely been an experience but I’m so thankful for it, I’m so thankful that I get to get all the hugs and the sloppy wet smooches so I don’t have to share that with his dad right now.
Advice Yandy gives other women in her situation:
Yandy: Stay strong. Soak up all the love you can from your child and know that its not something that was given to you that you can’t handle. Everyday I have to remind myself that I was put in this situation because I can do it. Knowing that I can do it and there’s no one else that can do it like me makes me feel like I gotta be great at it. If you see something I’m doing and you feel like you admire that take notes.
Things Yandy can’t leave the house without:
Yandy: I love MAC lipgloss, I love my lips to pop. I love my Everything Girls Love accessories, they accessorize every outfit!
