Not very many people can boast having turquoise and blonde hair, but having it also match your accessories? That's just awesome. A congenial lady who is a model, make up artist, and hairstylist, Beejay is also a mother of one son. This was her first visit to Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, so I hope being featured in Pop! was a nice way to complement her visit! Read more after the jump.
