The, 'Being Afro in a Straight World', issue I am mostly blogging about for now has been a personal journey for me. Media, beauty, fashion have always been a passion of mine and sorting out a definition of beauty for myself has been both sweet and sour, but I've made huge strides these last 5 years. That growth is what I want to share you.... and maybe in my story you will find freedom for yourself.

I look forward to getting to know you through emails and comments. Talk to you soon
