TwEETie dE LeON
Tweetie saunters into the room with the earnest femininity that only a mother of four—and a woman who is completely self-discovered—can possibly possess. She is calm in her approach and very gentle when she speaks, but once positioned in front of the lens, a sensuality takes over, and she is at ease in her body, how to move it, how she wants to be poised. Her years working as a model, actress, and lifestyle personality allows to shine in the spotlight—and her self-assurance breaks through her more delicate demeanor.
“Maybe at this age it’s not so much the definition of confidence that I have—its more like I know who I am, I know what I’m good at, I know what I’m lousy at—and I’m okay with all of those things. When you have gone through many things in life that only comes with a certain number of years here on earth, you learn so many things about yourself and how to relate to the world and to others.”
Today, she allots most of her time for herself and her family, and runs her onewoman jewelry business that gives her that creative fulfillment she’s looking for. It is her understanding of herself that is enviable and attractive—that a woman knows completely what she wants is someone who is a pleasure to be with, and Tweetie is no exception to this fact. “As a young individual, you’re always challenging yourself, pushing yourself— which is good, that’s what you should be—but I just learned to relax because I used to be like that, and eventually things will settle down.”
