Meet The Vice President of Zeta Amicae of Syracuse Sorority, Caprice Hibbler

By Tammy Reese


The Vice President of Zeta Amicae of Syracuse Sorority, Caprice Hibbler is an actress, talk show host, and youth & community leader. Caprice recently received her associate’s degree in Humanities and Social Sciences at Onondaga Community College and now she’s continuing her education to obtain her bachelor’s degree at Syracuse University. Caprice is also mapping out the highly anticipated Caprice Show which is going in a different

direction so with all the new changes it’s going to take a little more time to start filming.



The month of July was National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month and it’s important for us to continue the conversation in August and beyond with public figures who are setting an example to display positivity within themselves, others, and their communities.


July was National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. How do you manage your mental health while navigating your personal and professional life?


I think we all become so mute when it comes to mental health because people hear it and automatically think you’re crazy when you are having a mental breakdown. This month of shining light on Mental health is everything. I get overwhelmed often, because I find myself putting everything ahead of my mental health. I have no problem with stopping everything in mid-day and doing what makes me happy and that is nothing, laying down napping, and watching TV.


Sometimes your personal life and professional life can intertwine and you have to have a balance on both. I know that I have to be professional at all times in my professional life but I also know when my personal life is getting overwhelming I must take a step back.


Why do you think mental health has affected the Black community and what solutions and suggestions do you have for our community to take their mental health more seriously?


I think it was ignored for so long and shunned upon in the black community. Mental health always got confused with crazy, and the fact that black parents growing up always said ain’t nothing wrong with you, go pray. Yes praying helps but that’s not always the answer, sometimes mental health needs to be addressed differently and needs to be taken seriously and making sure your mental health is getting treated properly.

What are your best practices with self-care routines, and mental health coping skills?


My best practice is always praying. I have no problem with shutting the world out for a day or two. I always know when my mental health needs attention, I vent to very little because I know everyone has their own problems. So a day to myself not answering my phone, doing some online retail therapy, napping, or reading a book, are all ways I feed my mental when it is under attack. We need balance and we need time away from the real world to address the real things that go on in our own world.


Is there any exclusive news you can share with Heart of Hollywood Magazine at this time?


I am planning my first annual Caprice’s Christmas Giveaway 23' looking for sponsors and donations. This is just my way to give back to the community during my favorite time of the year.


What words of encouragement would you leave our readers to uplift them during our current climate?


Take one day at a time. Life is not always going to be pretty. You are going to have some ugly days but you have to take those ugly days and appreciate the pretty days. It is ok to not be present in the day because your mental is worth more than any job, any person, or anything that is not contributing to helping you get your mental space back together. I have learned the hard way that they will take everything from you and then it comes down to your mental, they will take that too if you let them, that’s why I have no issue with being done with people, places, and things when it comes to that point.
