My favorite part of studying abroad in Britain has been being a part of my school's Black Feminist Society (Black Femme) and discussing issues affecting Black British African & Caribbean women ❤ I am grateful for the community and opportunity to grow with you.

This past weekend I had the opportunity and honor of speaking to a group of 50 young women of color from all around the nation at an empowerment summit in Washington D.C. I’ve been teaching workshops for almost a year now and this is my first time speaking to this age group and at this capacity and teaching some of the gems I’ve learned in photography, social media & how when done correctly and professionally these areas can come to benefit them in their careers to come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be completely transparent, I was nervous at first because teens are extremely hard to impress (and honestly I thought what could I really teach them about social media that they don’t already know) but through various exercises & hands on activities on the technical, creative and other aspects, I found that they were really into it and they showed me so much love and respect ❤️ It genuinely was such a good feeling to know I could be even if a small contribution to the growth of our future leaders. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After seeing all of the programs provided for these ladies over the span of a few days (an influx of gems from all areas both spiritual and technical), I’m confident that each and everyone of these women left with the proper tools to go forth into a successful future. Special thanks to the Black Women’s Roundtable.
In the words of my good friend Decota, my heart is full.

Is anyone else’s shrinkage as disrespectful as mine? 😭🤭 Lately I’ve been stretching my hair by braiding it into 4 large braids and pinning them to opposite sides of my head before bed.
What’s your favorite way to stretch your natural hair? #textureshot#transformationtuesday#shrinkage
“Sometimes I like to daydream and pretend to know where I’m going. I have never felt so unsure about about everything as I do now, but that’s how they say the path forward is. So forward I’ll go. Forward is the only way” - @leocavazzana .
P.s I think the carving of F+L on the tree stands for French fries and luxury eggs. Let’s see you come up with better.
