BSB Feature: Liliane Bedford Lone Star State Belle

BSB Feature: Liliane Bedford Lone Star State Belle 1

So many great things come from Texas, most importantly great Black Southern Belles. Today we are featuring Liliane Bedford, a Texas Belle taking the political world by storm. I had the pleasure of knowing Liliane at Howard University and I am so proud of all that she is doing to represent HU and Black Southern Belles! Read about Liliane and her love of all things Southern!

Title: Legislative Aide to Senator Rodney Ellis

Company/Org: The Senate of Texas

Hometown: Houston, TX

Alma Mater: Howard University; Howard University School of Law

Sorority: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Favorite thing about being southern: The culture! Who doesn’t love southern food, music, or people?

What is your personal life motto: “Never hope for it more than you work for it!”

What is the most challenging professional obstacle you have had: I think as a woman, especially a Black woman, it can be difficult to get the respect that you deserve in our male dominated society. It has been a struggle to prove my capabilities while not coming off as too aggressive while also not being too complacent as to just fit in to the role they expect you to assume.

Who is your favorite character a “Different World”: Dwayne Wayne. How can you not love a man like Dwayne?!

If you could do any job, what would that be? Something in the music industry that would allow me to be surrounded by amazing music and artistry while also travelling the world!

Who do you wish you could meet? So many greats that have left this world too soon! Tupac, Whitney Houston, Nelson Mandela; Living: The entire Obama family, Malala Yousafzai

What would your best friend say is the best/most annoying quality about yourself? Best: I’m very loyal. Worst: I’m blunt and often a bit too honest.

What advice would you give your younger college self? Live in the moment and don’t worry as much about other’s perception of you

Where can we connect with you? twitter: @lilianebedford

We love celebrating Black Southern Belles and HBCU women (two time alum is even better!) Great things are in store for Liliane and we will be here to follow and support her along the way!

XOXO

Michiel is a Black Southern Belle living a lowcountry life. I love all things fashion, home decor and southern! When I am not running around doing fun stuff for Black Southern Belle, I live in antique stores and have a minor obsession with historic homes 🙂
