Baltimore, Maryland: Jamming, rocking, feting, you name it! Baltimore Washington DC One Caribbean Carnival was epic! The annual event drew thousands of spectators and participants from the Baltimore/Washington DC area and beyond! Patrons enjoyed a colorful parade, music, food and live entertainment all enclosed within Baltimore’s Lake Clifton Park.


I had the pleasure of rocking the mic as a guest speaker! Emphasizing the importance of Caribbean culture and unity. It’s always an honor to use my voice to empower the community. Hey they don't call me “Motivational Moore” for nothing!

Nothing but great vibes! Special thanks to Trevor J. DeFreitas for capturing these images!

Travel with Chardelle: Great Falls Park

Written by

Potomac, MD: Awww! Nothing like hanging out with awesome people and exploring Mother Nature! That’s exactly the scene that took place on memorial weekend when a few of my girlfriends and I decided to explore Great Falls Park! I know I'm super late on this post! We traded in the typical day party 'turn up' for an afternoon of hiking and REFLECTION!


Great Falls Park is a gorgeous 800-acre park located along the Potomac River. Just 15 miles from the Nation’s capital, you’ll be able to find breath-taking waterfalls! I’m an outdoor girl so this is definitely my kind of chill spot! There is literally something for everyone! Hiking, picnicking, kayaking, rock climbing, cycling, horseback riding you name it!! The park is home to two locations in Maryland and Virginia. My girls and I decided to explore the Maryland side and boy did we have FUN!


We hiked, sweat, laughed danced and meditated! After a peaceful meditation session, I asked my friends to throw a rock into the water. The rock symbolized letting go of something that was holding us down. Pain, anger, fear, break-up! Just let it go! This activity was much needed for ALL of us! What a fantastic way to spend a Saturday! Can’t wait to explore more outdoor adventures! 



Washington DC: I had the pleasure of emceeing Tea, Champagne & Fashion to a prominent crowd of ambassadors, VIP's and politicians at the Embassy of Guyana, in Washington DC. Hosted by Karib Nation, the private reception celebrated Guyana’s and Barbados 50th Independence Anniversary in style!


Guests enjoyed a spectacular evening filled with fashion, gourmet passed hors d’oeuvres and live performances.

The Ambassador of Guyana to the United States, Bayney Karran, was on hand to speak about Guyana’s and Barbados Independence and Caribbean fashion.

Featured fashion designers included Keisha Edwards,  Frank Hall, Sidney L. Francois and Vashti Harlequian.


Performances by White House Studio, Jackie Jaxx, Tonieka Thompson, Don J and DJ G Sharp on the ones and twos!

Huge Shout out to Karib Nation CEO and Founder Cornell Jones and Executive Director Chantney Renese for curating this magnificent event! Everyone had a blast! Photo Credit: Rell Edmonds. 




Washington DC: Summertime is my favorite time of the year! How can you not love the gorgeous weather, long nights and countless FESTIVALS!

I kicked off summer 2016 by attending the 1st annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival held in Washington DC on Pennsylvania Avenue. Tens of thousands came out to celebrate Caribbean American Heritage month. Patrons enjoyed world class reggae performers, mouthwatering jerk cuisine and activities for the whole family!

I had the pleasure of competing in the infamous" Celebrity Cook- Off"! Of course lots of laughs and funny moments! We had no idea what we were cooking!  My girl Donna Powell from WEAA 88.9 FM took home the convenient title! I must say she did her thing! You go sis! I was 1st runner up! LOL!

Let me make it clear that I’m not a professional chief at no means but I do love a good laugh and hanging out in the community! I’m grateful for the opportunity to have been included! Thanks Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival Washington DC for having me! Check out my stew below! I must say it was YUMMY!

If there is one thing that I’ve learned in 20+ years living on this planet is that the best project you'll ever work on is you! Cliché yes but 100 percent fact! To be frank, you can’t even control other people! Good chances are if your boyfriend is a jerk, you can’t transform him into your prince charming! Total waste of time! The ONLY person you have control over is YOURSELF. 


Here are some tips to become the best version of yourself. FYI I’m no expert. Just sharing my life experiences. 

Build a Relationship with God: God first! No matter what your religious background or your belief system, having a strong relationship with a higher power makes this journey called life a lot easier! 


Set Huge Goals: Absolutely huge! Why not? You never know what you're capable of until you try!


Challenge Yourself: Do something that scares you! Scratch that, do something that terrifies you! Great things never came from comfort zones.

Be You: One of the biggest challenges in life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else. I’ve stood out my entire life and I’m not just talking about my height! LOL! I’ve learned to accept myself the way I am! No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you! 


Eat Healthy, Exercise & Relax: How can you become the best version of yourself when you’re not taking care of your body! It’s impossible!

Give Back: Whether you donate money or time, giving back makes you feel super good about yourself! 

Cry and Move On: Allow yourself to cry and then move on: I’m the biggest cry baby! Seriously! I cry for everything! It's ok to cry, it's ok to hurt, but feeling sorry for yourself won’t change anything! Get up and keep it moving!


Pursue Your Passion: Let’s face it, we spend a lot of time at work so you might as well chose a field that you love to do.

Be Positive: Hate to break it to you but life is always going to have obstacles. Even in our darkness moments, a positive attitude will make a world of difference. Also surround yourself with positive people and be nice to people! Do you know someone that drains the life out of you? Exactly! Don’t be that person!


Hope my nuggets of wisdom can empower you guys to become the best version of yourself but remember it’s ultimately your decision! Remember we're all works in progress!

Baltimore, MD: I had the honor of emceeing Chase Brexton Health Care's second annual AIDS Walk & Run Baltimore! The event raised over $87,000 to expand HIV/AIDS education, testing, treatment and related care in the region. Despite the cold and rainy morning, over 400 participants came to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore on Sunday, May 1, to walk, run and volunteer to support Chase Brexton.

Funds raised this year will help furnish two new mobile HIV testing, education and assistance vehicles, which were unveiled at the event. Proceeds from last year's event were used to purchase the two mobile units.Baltimore's rate of infection is 7.5 times higher than the national average, according to the CDC. HIV/AIDS is the fourth leading cause of death in the city of Baltimore, but at least one in six residents has not been tested for HIV. Baltimore City alone accounts for 41 percent of all new cases in Maryland.

For anyone who missed the event but would still like to donate to improve access to HIV/AIDS testing and care in Baltimore, Chase Brexton is accepting donations through June 30, 2016, Check out the promo below! 


St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands: If you’re traveling to St. Thomas, consider a day trip to Lindquist Beach. Nestled in Smith Park Bay, a protected 21 acre beachfront park, Lindquist Beach is paradise for my fellow mermaids!

Lindquist Beach is stunningly beautiful! I was dazzled by the crystal calm water and soft sand. A major perk, Lindquist Beach isn't crowded! You won’t find any fancy restaurants or even bars here, just laid back island vibes surrounded by Mother Nature!

I literally spent days here! Relaxing, meditating and being one with the universe. Snorkeling can be founded on the right side of the beach. Let’s not forget the spectacular view of St. John and the British Virgin Islands!

Admission fees: Residents with ID$2. Non-Residents $ 5. Car parking $2. Children under 13 are free. If you love nature, than Lindquist Beach St. Thomas is a must! Visit my Facebook and  IG for even more photos @Chardellemoore! Cheers!


Baltimore, MD: Motivational Moore is in the building! Last Sunday, I had the honor of serving as the keynote speaker at From Girls to Women Summit, held at the Hilton Baltimore North-Pikesville.


Founded by the beautiful Michelle Davis, the summit is an annual event created to empower, inspire and uplift teen girls ages 13-18. 

92Q radio personality DJ AngelBaby  hosted the event with DJ Shay on the ones and twos! 

Attendees enjoyed hands on workshops, self-esteem building activities, live performances and a panel discussion featuring women leaders across diverse industries. 

What I love about events like these is the fact they truly impact lives! Too many girls and young women struggle with low self-esteem! Let’s change that. It’s truly a blessing to be using my gifts to empower the community!  I had a blast!
