Meet my alter ego. Her name is Scarlett Raviss. How did I get that name? Oh well it was at my 21st birthday party in Vegas at a stripper 101 class. Okay okay we did NOT strip but it was a hilarious class that included my mom, my grandmother, my aunts, and other women who are basically my aunts. We all got a “certification card” at the end and we had to put down our new name, mine was Scarlett Raviss, I wasn’t about to put down Candy or Cookie, so I went historical with some Scarlett O’Hara inspiration and the last name means ‘ravishing’ in Middle French. (yeah that’s right, middle french, I was going to minor in French deal with it)
I like to think Scarlett has always been around. She normally shows herself (not like that geez) during dance. She’s really confident, outspoken, ravishing, and incredibly enchanting. Sometimes I borrow a little from Scarlett when I (Katherine) am feeling shy or I need a confidence boost.
There are other famous alter egos Beyonce has Sasha Fierce, Sasha Baron Cohen has Ali G, Clark Kent has Superman, Sabrina has The Teenage Witch (maybe?), Lady Gaga has Joe Calderone, and David Bowie has Ziggy Stardust. So Scarlett Raviss isn’t that crazy right?
Apparently I’ve always had Scarlett inside me…
Do you have an alter ego?
