As a founding member of Destiny’s Child, LaTavia Roberson‘s run in the group saw her reach global superstardom alongside band mates LeToya Luckett, Beyonce and Kelly Rowland by way of music and visuals that elevated them to levels beyond those reached by the En Vogue‘s and TLC‘s of the world.
Much has changed since we were first introduced to Roberson in 1997.
What success means for her now?
I’ve discovered that a peace of mind is more important than anything. Being here, being a source of positivity and light in the world, and loving me for who I am…that’s my definition of success.
All of this is a dream come true. When I was 15 I decided I wanted to write a book and seeing it all come together twenty years later is a blessing. The editors are excited about it, so today’s a good day.
I’d been so silent for ten years and I knew I had to be transparent with the people who have been following my journey. That meant giving them the good bad and the ugly and telling the truth about everything. It starts from my childhood and concludes with my pregnancy. I started writing again in 2007 but got writer’s block for four years. I now know that I had to go through some things and understand them before articulating them. Now it’s almost ready and I couldn’t be happier.
