Wanted to share something that hit my inbox. Since I do enjoy the art of stepping and I do support the Boss Network and my Soror  Syleena Johnson I decided to share. Enjoy. I think it’s a good idea that Syleena is tapping into her Greek network.

Chicago, IL-August 5, 2011-Attention all Greek letter organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC),Grammy-nominated recording artist, Syleena Johnson wants to know who’s boss.
