Special thanks to everyone who came out to my @RunningStart #Ambassador celebration party! & Special thanks to my #RunningStart roomie Carly @seejanewin for thinking to plan such a cool and fun get together! #TheFutureIsFemale #ILookLikeAPolitician

As the Ambassador for #runningstart 's #ILOOKLIKEAPOLITICIAN campaign, I received the awesome opportunity to write an article in Politico ! Check out the link in my bio!

I cannot and don't even care to fathom the woman I would have been if #Spelman was not a part of my life. Spelman remains one of the greatest choices of my life. Happy Founder's Day to my beloved Alma Mater and all of my World-Changing #SpelmanSisters ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’™ #AChoiceToChangeTheWorld #SpelmanCollege #OurHeartsToThine

Laid my Grandfather to rest Saturday, which is never easy. Losing my maternal grandfather during the same month of the 1st anniversary of my paternal grandfather, has also been incredibly trying.

Saturday, my grandfather's dying wish was have me sing at his funeral. Singing while sad can be incredibly hard for expressively honest singers (as, it is difficult to hide your true emotions when you sing and you risk crying during your performance). Though, I didn't know how it would turn out or if I'd be strong enough, it turned out rather well and I was able to make it through. Even in his death, he still encouraged me to use my God-given gift. โค

Now that my grandfather has been laid to rest and has gone to glory, I am reminded of his heart, his resilient energy and his legacy of doing his best to never give up. He ALWAYS tried to make the best of a situation. And he always tried to find a way to bring everyone together to "make it work". Though I still feel a void, that I have struggled to adequately express, for days now - I am grateful for the lessons he taught me and his unwavering love. I am reminded to continue to use my gift of music through song.
I love you dearly Granddaddy & I look forward to the day I see you again in heaven๐Ÿ’•

God's plan ๐Ÿ™

Within the first week of being elected @RunningStart 's #ILookLikeAPolitician Ambassador, I got the amazing chance to be interviewed on the #ToneAndTenor radio show by some very engaged 7th and 8th graders from St. James School in #Philadelphia. We chatted about #activism, #BlackLivesMatter and how young people can be leaders in their community. We also chatted about my life, growing up a #MilitaryChild and how I have the courage to be a bold servant leader in my community.
You can check out the #podcast interview by clicking the link in my bio. After this weekend, you can find this #interview on my website at .
Special thanks to the hosts, production crew, Running Start ataff and St. James Administration for making this interview possible!

"Taking risks in life is pertinent. Risks help cultivate your character and embody fearlessness. When you take a risk, you build the courage to fight the fear of the unknown."- Dope quote that spoke to me from one of my #Spelman Sisters - y'all go check her out @sammye_scott

You asked for and it's here! Here's my winning speech from @RunningStart's Young Women to Watch Awards that led to me being elected #RunningStart's #ILookLikeAPolitician Ambassador! Moral of the story: NEVER, I repeat, NEVER listen to your haters, naysayers, & non-supporters. ONLY you were given the vision into your future and to your GREATNESS. You and only you know the gifts you hold. It is YOUR responsibility to develop your gifts and let your own light SHINE. #ShineOnQueenShineOn
