And you showing off... but it’s alright🤩

This is my life, my life. Post a picture of what you want your legacy to be. #DoughboyzCashoutEdition #HU22

It’s funny because everytime someone asks me what I want to do after Howard, my answer is all over the place. But the one answer that stays consistent is that I know for sure I want to touch the lives of young black girls all across America. I know for a fact I would not be at Howard, nor half the woman I am, if it wasn’t for my village. Especially the amount of black women who have poured into my life. From coaches, to aunts, to cousins, to mentors, words cannot express how blessed I am. Therefore I know it is my life’s purpose to do the same for little girls that look just like me. This is what I want my legacy to be.💜And a special S/O to @jewelsinc for letting me mentor all of these babies. #LiftAsWeClimb

The legacy continues.. #HU93 #HU20 #HU22 💙❤️


Game 4.

Today was everything. We celebrated my sister at her honors ceremony for graduating high school next Thursday!! And I got to present my first scholarship, the Finding Your Voice Scholarship, at my high school. Applicants were asked to write an essay about the importance of finding their voice and what it means to them. I was so moved by all of the submissions that I decided to award 2 of the $500 scholarships. Special S/O to my sister @questionswithqri for matching my donation and even believing in my vision. And thank you to Mr. Vincent, Mr. Young, and my mom for seeing that my vision was carried out! Congratulations to the two beautiful young ladies who won this award. Your futures are so bright and continue to use those voices you have found on your own 💛

throwback to the summerrr✨

Thank you @marchforourlives for facilitating this movement.. But a special THANK YOU to the strong young girls of color who stood up on that stage today and spoke up about how this movement did not just begin with Parkland.. it’s been going on since before I was born. Our black brothers and sisters have been senselessly killed for years.. it didn’t just start recently. On top of the fact that our men continue to be profiled, when NONE OF THE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS HAVE BEEN BY A BLACK PERSON!!!!! As I say often, the irony in it all, is that the country that has caused all of the pain & suffering for me & my people, is the only place where I can comfortably become a change agent to ensure a better future for generations to come. If an 11 year old can get up on that stage and talk about issues affecting his/her community in order to make a change, what’s stopping you? Thank you Naomi (11), Maya (16), Yolanda Renee King (9, granddaughter of Martin Luther King) and the countless others who are taking a stand and using their voice. #EnoughisEnough #BlackLivesMatter #StudentsLivesMatter #IloveUsForreal ❤️
