LONG
BIO

“I am LonnieB." is not a slogan, a chant, or a cheer. It is not even a statement of who I am becoming… It is my statement of “I”. It is my value, my worth, and my bottom line of this beautiful life as A’Londa L. Barber. 
 
A Texas native, Dr. A’Londa L. Barber-Kusimo was born to the parentage of an educated African-American mother and a hard-working father. As multiculturalism has not always been an easy institution to understand or overcome, the family moved from El Paso to Dallas, where A’Londa attended grade school and lived out her dreams of becoming a classical dancer at the Booker T. Washington High School for Performing Arts. Upon graduation she matriculated to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. 
 
During college A’Londa saw her passion grow from dance to business. Discovering she had a knack for embellishing customers through her creativity, it earned her a Bachelor’s Degree in Business/Speech Communication which allowed her to pursue her career in customer service and eventually the accomplishment of her own entrepreneurial flow in graphic design. 
 
In her quest to reach each of her goals and bring to fruition her vision, A’Londa has maneuvered herself to be a voice for those who have lost their own. This became her mantra per an encounter that changed her life forever. In a prayer to God on September 24, 2010, A’Londa asked to be delivered from a life of bi-sexuality. Placing no limits on what God’s plan would be in response to her prayer--at times, experiencing the greatest of loss and the worst of hurt and hate--she has proven to be an overcomer “champion” for those who wish to overcome. Her powerful story is captured in her best seller, “Journey of a Sista on the Downlow” Volume 1 & 2 and echoed in a collaborative work with other authors “Finding Joy in the Journey” Volume 1&2.
 
The best-selling author is well-established in the community promoting herself as a self-starter and leader via her efforts of running for public office and membership to leading service organizations inclusive of her church and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. She is a mentor to young women, and an inspiration to all as she continuously works to live her truth and walk in her God-given purpose. 
 
A’Londa is the owner of Percibility, LLC™ and LonnieB Creative Designs, where the company works to make your vision into reality.
 
A'Londa is a dedicated family woman currently living in Dubai with her husband, Emmanual.  In her spare time you can find her dancing, reading, or making others laugh.    
 
When asked what inspires her, A’Londa shared, “My daily inspiration and life’s motivation are because of Philippians 4:13--I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and
Ephesians 2:8-9--For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast..”
