As a mother to her daughter named Brilliance, Olympia D understands the challenges that parents face as they strive to raise the brightest and most well-rounded kids possible. Her journey of raising her daughter, Brilliance, inspired her to build a parenting platform entitled, Raising Brilliance, for parents everywhere. Olympia D’s Raising Brilliance, shared valuable information about various programs and activities that exposed children to positive new ideas and environments that enriched their educational and social skills. Raising Brilliance aired every Friday night at 8pm on WBTV /Bounce TV Channel 1255 on Time Warner Cable. Yet, she still found the time to lend her time and talents to organizations like Susan G. Komen, A Better World, The American Cancer Society and St. Jude. The motto that she lives by is, “turn your negative into a positive situation!”
