So lemme tell y'all a little bit about this shoot... De'Shawn hit me up from out of state looking for a collab while he was in the city we went up to Albion basin where we quickly got yelled at to get out of the flowers so if y'all were wondering why my eyes are closed in this whole set..I'm blaming the security. •

Biggest #MGP : My biggest MGP is monoracism, it is a term I researched during my Masters program about how mixed race individuals are forced into one racial category throughout history, and by society. I am constantly being asked "What are you?" before people ask my name, or people go through a list of countries trying to guess which singular ethnicity I am as if I cannot be mixed. Then there are also the people who I tell my background and say, "Well just say you're Hispanic or pick one." That is not how this works! That is not how I choose to identify! I am mixed and proud!
Be yourself. If you water yourself down to please people, or to fit in or to not offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom, and the joy of being uniquely you. It’s much easier to love yourself when you are being yourself. #motivationmonday#curlygirl#mixedgirlmonday#loveyourmelanin
