Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Give the poor a voice...15th October 2008

Blog Action Day is about garnering the support from all the independent publishers who use the internet as their medium. The cause is poverty. The disease is lethargy. We all have a voice and therefore the power to make some change happen.

Please take a read, listen and look at some of the messages from other supporters on the Blog Action website. The advice given to me was to keep "on topic"...but what is the topic of my blog?! It's just about me and it's about lifestyle, so let me keep it short and sweet and show how a couple of minutes and clicks can make a difference in the world.

The Blog Action website inspired me with the simple idea of micro loans and connected me to Kiva, an organization that will do all the hard work of connection my money to an entrepreneur in a developing country. I just gave Kiva $25...It's not a lot, but it'll make a difference to Shukur Jalilov a farmer in Tajikistan who wanted $600 to get more cattle and feed for the coming winter.

I want to make a difference in LA so I give my regular support to the LA Mission in downtown's "Skid Row". Even though there is $100 millions of development money pouring into a few square miles, there are still homeless and hurting people downtown whom the LA Mission gives food, warmth and shelter to.

May be spend a moment on the Blog Action website or think about your local community to see what you can do to help to reduce poverty. The Donate Your Day's Earnings page is an easy way to contribute to this movement and a great way to show your support.
