From the editor: If you know me, you know I love love love to dance. All my poetics go out the window and I become a sweaty, grindy mess. Actually, fuck it. That is poetry. This is why I wanted to interview Guerdley–she is one beast of a dancer, a powerhouse of a woman and a thinker. I hate the term je nais se quoi, but she has it.Duende. Having been involved in communications, web series hosting and choreography, she is someone to watch for.
You’re into everything; webcasts, journalism, dancing and choreography. There’s even a documentary. Who IS Guerdley Cajus?
To put a 20-something year old story in a nutshell, I’m a chick on a life mission of full expression. Ever since I was a mini-Guerd with braces and Spice Girl sneakers, like many people I’ve been entertaining the idea that everyone has a simple and specific message to share with the world. A message that is a specific and unique as our fingerprints. Our mission is to figure out what that is, and influence the world with it. If we don’t, we rob humanity of its full potential… (Yeah, arguably one of the most emo kids in elementary school history, I know! Lol!)
So back to that nutshell! I’m living, learning, and communicating in every tongue that comes natural to me: body language, public speaking, hosting and writing, until I realize my full message, whatever the hell it is. *Shrug*
You worked on WWMD. That fascinates me! What inspires you ladies to start that show.
After college, the idea kind of snowballed and we really started to get curious about what a man would do and think in a number of circumstances. Chazeen put the idea in a web show format and ever since then we’ve been hosting it, and asking guys some incredibly uncomfortable questions all for the sake of female curiosity lol! Good times a’rolling!
What’s the biggest gender misconception you’ve encountered?
Since I’ve been writing and interviewing men for WWMD I’ve learned that dudes are hella sensitive! Way more sensitive than we women give them credit for. Women naturally assume that men are the more durable gender. Which may be the case a lot of times physically, but not the case emotionally. CLICK to read the rest.
