Meet Lonna Hardin
What does it mean to be flawless and brilliant? Some say perfect. Not me. Just like a diamond, every human possesses a power to shine. Rare, precious jewels can be found in the most dark, obscure places. Those willing to pay the price and do the work always find the flawless, brilliant gem hidden inside. Like a diamond, I am raw, uncut and multi-dimensional. Through many life experiences, I’ve learned having an authentic, genuine voice in a world full of fake knockoffs and copycats matters. If you are looking for real life, real talk, and real passion… thanks for stopping by. I am the voice you’ve been searching for.
