 Interview with TeeKay

 

Dhylles Davis: Who is Tee Kay/ Tukisha Knox?

 

TK: TK is Tukisha Knox shortened for the purpose of my fast paced life on and off social media..lol. It seems as if I’m always moving but when I do slow down and access myself, I am a wife, a mom, a best friend, a role model to my children and a true Scorpio. I am the glue that holds it all together. I was laid off in 2012 and trying to cope as a stay at home wife/mother just wasn’t my cup of tea. My alter ego “Klahsik Diva” manifested which is also the name for my women’s accessories business. So add entrepreneur to the list as well!

 

Dhylles: When did you realize you were born an accomplishment?

 
 TK: I realized that I was born an accomplishment when I graduated from College. I was raised by my mother and stepfather until a few months shy of my 13th birthday. I didn’t meet my biological father until I was in my late twenties. I was sent to live with my great grandmother who was well into her late sixties. I basically fended for myself school wise with some input and guidance of other family members along the way. I started working in my senior year of H.S. My boyfriend and I started to save money to move out on our own after graduation. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to attend college, as no one else in my immediate family had and so it wasn’t heavy on my radar. My mom birthed me at the tender age of 14 and never finished high school. She eventually got her GED and took a few college courses in her late teens. Right after I graduated high school, I took six months off to continue working full time and save up money. Finally with the help of my boyfriend, I applied to a CUNY school and was accepted. Luckily, I qualified for financial aid. One year later, I became pregnant with my son who is now going into his second year at Georgetown University. After his birth, I took another semester off to bond with him and then I jumped right back in. I was now 22, engaged, living on my own with a newborn, working full time and enrolled back in school and taking 12 -15 credits per semester. It took five years from start to finish with my breaks in between but I did it. In June of 2001, my mom and boyfriend who had become my husband watched me walk across the stage of Madison Square Garden to acknowledge my degree from Baruch College. I did it.. realized that I was born an accomplishment. I was my mom’s accomplishment.

 

Dhylles: Use one word to describe who you are and why.

 
TK: Why? Because I’ve been through some things amazing, spectacular, sad and depressing but overall I’m still blessed.

 

Dhylles: How long did it take you to accept your imperfections and what held you back from accepting?

 
TK: I’m still accepting my imperfections, however I have people in my life who show me that my imperfections are acceptable and that makes me feel good. My own critique of myself held me back and still does from time to time but that’s human.

 

 

Dhylles: In what way did you find your peace in your life?

 

TK: I found peace in my life when I explored and found answers to questions that were unanswered from my past. Then I was able to move forward and live life to the fullest. My children doing well also brings me peace.

 

Dhylles: Thanks for sharing TK!
