Its almost as if she prophesized the 21st century


and spoke it into existence. Why? Because wellbehaved women seldom make history. Take Kim
Kardashians breaking the internet early on in 2015
with her questionable nude photos on the cover of
Paper magazine. Or Miley Cyrus extreme twerkfest at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Both
undeniably a little wayward and uncouth to say the
least, but we know them by name and we mimic
their behavior. Turning back the clock a few decades and hoop skirts earlier, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a historian and University of Harvard professor presented this insurmountable idea in a simple
quote, Well-behaved women seldom make history. With this, she became even more of an innovative and influential being to the womens movement
throughout the course of history. Her most powerful quote, encouraged her to write a book after she
saw how meaningful it was and how it was used as
an escape tool into pop culture. This book allowed
her to highlight some of the most powerful and
credited women for shaping our history during her
time, including Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Virginia Woolf to name a
few. Ulrich identified herself as a feminist who tried
to change the negative influences certain women
had on the world by shedding light on the positive
ones. In retrospect, we cant say that it didnt work,
we know them by name and we know their efforts.
However, every now and again, a good twerk session is good for the soul.

While most five-year-olds are enjoying their summer


playing with friends, going to camp and taking family vacations, Tyreek Gasden is spending his a whole
lot differently. After being told he may never walk
again, Tyreek assures everyone that he is just thankful and blessed to be alive. During the heated month
of May, Tyreek and his grandmother Doretha Jones
were walking down America and Mary streets in
Downtown Charleston, when gunfire erupted. As
they walked around the corner, they ran into an
apparent gun-fight. Doretha said she laid down trying to protect Tyreek as the gunman ran over them,
still trying to chase down his intended target. As
Tyreeks grandmother saw blood leaking from his
shirt she realized something terrible had happened.
Tyreek was shot in the back and another victim, in
the leg. He was rushed to MUSC where doctors later
concluded that he had been shot in the spine. It is
unknown whether Tyreek will walk again, but on the
up and up, the shooter has since been identified as
27-year-old Calvin Brown Jr. Hes been charged with
two counts of attempted murder along with a weapons charge. Through the midst of it all, Tyreek remains the joyful little boy that he always has been.
Hes been receiving treatment in South Carolina as
well as North Carolina, and although he continues to
remain hopeful he still questions why he is unable to
walk. As hurtful as it is to explain to a five-year-old
about the condition of his health and why he cant
enjoy playing with other kids his age as he once did,
we cant help but question the current nature and
status of our community.

Nothing defines true beauty and poise like a crown and a sashok, ok,
maybe were being a little dramatic, however, it does look good,
especially on the cover of our magazine. And this years 2015 Ms.

Laquawn: I see myself as smart, loyal and


dedicated. Im a peoples person that will dig
in different modeling opportunities. I get

Hate her or love her, either way she makes sure to stand out amongst those who try
to fit in and if that doesnt say something dominant about her character were sure
her straightforward and blunt demeanor will. Shes in a league of her own and its
going to take a lot of catching up to get to the position shes in. But if you need a few
pointers, were certain shes the one to deal with. With a slam packed schedule for
the next three months, we made sure to try our luck with an exclusive interview with
the one and only, Britt Bratt, the turn-up queen, and we succeeded, as always.

Geechee One: Who is Britt Bratt?


Britt Bratt: Britt Bratt is the ultimate party
girl who turns the party up. She's A Single
Mother & Go Getter...
Geechee One: How did you get into hosting
and promoting events?
Britt Bratt: I Started Back In 2010 In The
City Of Moncks Corner & Cross SC & Took It
Serious When People Offer To Me To Come
Out & Help Get A Crowd For Their Parties...
Geechee One: What were you doing before
you got into hosting and promoting?
Britt Bratt: Before This Hosting Thing, I Use
To Work Like 2 Fast Food Job Then Worked
For ADT Alarm System. But That Was Years
Ago...
Geechee One: If the party scene wasnt as
flourishing for you as it was, what do you
think youd be doing?
Britt Bratt: If The Party Scene Wasn't Flourishing For Me, I'd Probably Be On Somebody
Job... What Sets Me From Other People In
The Field, I Think Because This Is My Only
Job & I Put More Into Effort With It...
Geechee One: We pay attention to social media and have seen your name come up in
different situations, when it comes to beef,
how do you address it?
Britt Bratt: Me & Facebook Beef, I Just
Laugh At It. It's Funny To Me Because I
Don't Know Majority Of Those People. Me
Being Me Gets A Lot Of Attention & Females
Hate It. At Times I Put On a Show, But The
Money Still Flow. I'm Not Bothered By All
The Dissing... Majority Of The Attention
That Comes My Way, Helps Me Build On
What I Have Going On. The More & More
People I Meet, Is The More & More Business
I Get. At Times, I Get Shook Up By All The
Attention Because Some Attention Cause The
Wrong Attention To Others & Being A Open
Target Is So Not Cool. I Stay Alert...
Geechee One: At last years Geechee One

Awards you won various awards, what did


that mean for you?
Britt Bratt: Winning Those Awards Meant A
Lot To Me & I Felt As Though I Deserve It. I
Work Hard For Em & The People Saw That. I
Felt Appreciated & It Made Me Grind Even
More... I Get Called Out My Name & Judge A
Lot By Females/Man Who Don't Really
Know. Some Of The Things I Do & Say Are
Just For Entertainment. I Don't Mean No
Harm On Anybody. But Anybody Who
Knows Me, Knows That I Have A Good Heart
& Will Give My Last To Help...
Geechee One: Whats the typical night like
for you when you have several events booked
simultaneously?
Britt Bratt: The Most I Ever Did In A Night

Pull Em Through, But Lord Knows I Be
Tired. But I Gotta Do What I Have To Do For
Mines, Soooo I Don't Complain...
Geechee One: Whats the biggest obstacle
youve run into while dealing with people in
this business?
Britt Bratt: Lol, Everybody Want To Do Business, But Everybody Don't Wanna Pay &
When It's Like That, I Fall Back From Em.
Business Is Business At The Ending Of The
Day. Going Home Short Doesn't Pay My
Dues...
Geechee One: Whats one of the best things
about this business?
Britt Bratt: The Best Thing About This Business Is Seeing Folks Having A Good Time. I
Love To Hear People Saying "I Gotta Book
You For My Party, You Stay Turnt". That's

Interview by Pretti Ladi

Running a business is tough work. Trust us, we know all about it. Theres a lot of blood,
sweat and tears that go into perfecting your craft and making sure the needs of your clients/readers needs are met. They depend on us. Running a magazine is no different. In
fact if you ask us, it is quite the challenge. The reward in the end however is far greater
than the challenge itself, and seeing the looks on our readers faces when we release
those exclusive issues are priceless. We caught up with editor of Syllabus Magazine,
Drea, who knows this feeling all too well. In an exclusive interview, she tells us what
things are like taking on such a big responsibility.

Geechee One: Tell us a little about yourself and all of the hats that you wear.
Drea: I am the editor and publisher of
Syllabus Magazine, also graphic and web
designer.
Geechee One: Were familiar with Syllabus Magazine and we commend you on
your success, what influenced you to
create your magazine and when did it all
begin?
Drea: Thank you. Decided about 1.5 - 2
years ago to create a magazine dedicated
to music, fashion and culture throughout the Carolinas. Believed that there
were so many talented people who I was
constantly coming into contact with,
built a platform to highlight them, along
with my love for graphics/web design/
and photography, thought it made sense
to build something that I could actually
enjoy doing regularly.
Geechee One: Do you remember who
graced the cover of your very first issue?
Drea: Yes, it was Sadie Hawkins, she
was fresh off her tour with Yo Gotti and
she met me in Columbia for a photoshoot and interview.

Geechee One: What sets your magazine


and work ethic apart from others?
Drea: I dont know. I dont focus on
what others are doing. I just try to focus
on creating something that is dope and
beautiful and when people are featured
in my magazine, I hope that they are
proud to be a part of something that I
really took my time on to create.
Geechee One: What all goes into the
production of a magazine?
Drea: There is a lot that goes into creating a magazine. I do not think that people can begin to understand the amount
of work that it takes, it looks easy but it
is not. From finding the right photographers, to trying to get interesting details/stories, to setting up fashion shoots
and makeup/hair, so much, I dont think
I can answer it in this one question.
Geechee One: What has been one of
your biggest accomplishments?
Drea: My biggest accomplishment? I
would say completing my Masters and
starting my graphic design business at
the same time. Completing my Masters
was probably the hardest thing that Ive
ever done.

There is a
lot that
goes into
creating a
magazine.

Geechee One: Whats the biggest misconception about you?


Drea: The biggest? I can only imagine.
There are probably plenty, Im sure
there are too many to list.
Geechee One: How has your business
grown over the years?
Drea: It is amazing that people know
what Syllabus Magazine is, I feel like I
am still in the development phase of
my mag, I know that it could grow to
be something great because it is a project that celebrates others, its not
about me. Anything where you celebrate the talents and interests of other
people is always a good thing.
Geechee One: Whats the biggest obstacle youve faced in trying to get people to follow your movement?
Drea: I believe that I have been my
biggest obstacle. I have always done
lots of different things and held lots of
different positions, not always giving
100 percent of my time to 1 thing. I
believe that has been the biggest obstacle for me.
Geechee One: What do you think the
entertainment scene is lacking in
Charleston, SC.

Drea: I think the entertainment scene


in Charleston, SC is lacking monetary
backing and it is also lacking a solid
business plan. I believe lots of people
are just stuck financially; they have lots
of ideas, but no real finances to accomplish what they want to do. I also believe that people lack a solid business
plan. People would be surprised by
how far they can get by having specific
goals and a plan. Many times people
go into things without really having it
planned out.
Geechee One: What advice do you have
for anyone trying to pursue their
dreams and become successful?
Drea: Just do it. What do you have to
lose? If you have something in your
spirit, just start writing your ideas
down now. Start sketching out your
magazine if that is what you
want. Start clipping pics of dresses if
you want to be a designer. Take marketing class if you want to own a business, just get started, and keep going
until you figure it out. Also, ask for
help if you need it.
Geechee One: If anyone wants to contact you, where can they reach you?
Drea: Editor@syllabusmagazine.com or
Twitter @SyllabusMag

What is the true definition of a Carolina girl? My definition would be a strong,


beautiful, intelligent hustler. We as Carolina women are natural born hustlers.
Not only do we know how to get what we want, but we know how to perfect our
crafts. From singing to dancing, to writing and promoting, to designing, to
caring we have our own signature that truly screams Carolina. While at this
photo shoot for the article, I met some amazing women and heard some
incredible stories. Each woman carried herself with pride and confidence. We
are constantly labeled and profiled by others but today we prove each label
wrong. Women can do anything men can do and maybe better. The days of
males being the bread winner are far over. Not only are all of these women
successful and intelligent, they are all unique in their own way. Being a female
in the industry, will always make you the underdog. The good thing about it is
we move under the radar. Always remember that what is last today will be first
tomorrow. Building your brand is very important; each female was not only
stamped but approved. So today you all will be introduced to some of the
coolest Carolina women that go hard for not only them but others as well.
