2 years ago today I sat in the ER w/ my sister friend @mbisfree (for the 2nd time) and learned that from then on I’d have to create a new normal w/ #GravesDisease . I made a promise to myself that I would always make the things I love a priority. Fast forward and I’ve just finished my 1st day in the Institute for Documentary Filmmaking at GWU where I’ll be making my dream of being a storyteller a reality! If you’re in the area holla atcha girl 😁 #thelovelife#thriving#TheDistrict#storytelling#brilliantandbrown ™ #futurefilmmaker#DC

Just recently, I’ve become more and more interested in building structures. A friend of mine once looked at a structure and said to me, “It’s crazy how somebody had to think of this design. I wouldn’t have thought of this,” and from then up until now I’ve been keeping my eye out for the smallest details on the structures I come across. Hopefully, I’ll be able to take more adventures on my own for photos like this one.
So proud of our client @youlivetotravel . Their founder, Jennifer Fein, was featured by @huffpost and @thrive in a list of 99 Limit Pushing Female Founders. Jennifer launched @youlivetotravel AND climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in the same year. How cool is that? It goes to show that you're unstoppable if you believe you are. Tag that limit-pushing woman, friend, colleague in your life 👇🏻❤️ xx #popnodclientnews

This amazing man deserves more than just one day.
Before leaving the White House for Florida on Friday, President Donald Trump encouraged the public to observe Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, "with acts of civic work and community service in honor of Dr. King's extraordinary life" and "his great legacy." But Trump apparently did not partake in any such service.
Instead, he spent Monday on the golf course at the swanky Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The move was a departure from his recent predecessors, all of whom did some form of community service on the day during their presidencies and sometimes after.
While President Barack Obama was in office, he and his family paid tribute to the civil-rights legend with some form of volunteer work, whether visiting a soup kitchen or helping paint a mural at a shelter.

This week’s #202sday picture was submitted to us by Dakota, from Glover Park. Thanks Dakota!
I’m Dakota, and this is my twin brother Keanu. Our parents moved to DC when we were 3 months old, and we have grown up in Glover Park the majority of our lives. We went to 6 different DC public schools and have seen how DC’s lack of representation negatively affects its residents and the resources available to us. We love DC because its an incredibly beautiful, colorful, and cultural city with a powerful history and fight within it. We support DC statehood because we know that DC is far from perfect. We have many needs and issues but the first step is acknowledgement that we matter and are voting citizens that deserve TRUE representation and voting rights. DC was not given representation in the past when black Americans were not treated as citizens, and women could not vote. Things have changed, and using “the constitution says…” is a dead argument. We deserve the same rights as every other American.
Ready to break free of those inhibitions? #OpenMic is tonight & every Tuesday from 8PM-12AM at The Falcon. For 3 songs or 10 minutes, anyone can come, sign up, and perform original or non-original music, poetry, performance art, comedy, etc. 🎤🎸
Frugal & Fit. My smoothie is made with Berry Banana blend frozen fruit from the Dollar Tree & Almond Milk using my Hamilton Beach Stick Blender. So recently I wanted to loose about 5 pounds & unintentionally reached my goal by eating more healthy. So the next time you’re in the dollar tree check out these frozen fruit blends. For only $1 why not?! My Hamilton Beach stick blender was under $20 on Amazon. We drink Almond & Soy milk so it’s always in the refrigerator. #frugalista#smoothie
