Someday, someone will call back to a time when your connection with them made an impact on their life. Whether they know you personally, or feel connected to you through the small boxes on this platform, they will recall how their interactions with you made them feel and how your presence made a difference in their world!

Today, my heart is still heavy mourning the loss of a true inspiration @kyrzayda_. It took me several days to cycle through the entire emotional process from disbelief, devastation, anger, hurt and sadness to reflection, peace, acceptance and hope. To know Kyrzayda was to love her, there was no in between, no grey areas at all! My love and admiration for this beautiful soul began in 2015 when I discovered her account! I fell in love with her style, passion, dedication and consistency! After stalking her page for months, I reached out to her through a DM for blogger advice. Her response was more than I ever expected and marked the beginning of an insta-friendship that we would maintain for 2 years before meeting in person. When we finally met in NY, I recall us both bursting into laughter when we saw each other shocked that we were both like a cool 5’2... we joked about how we like to shoot from low angels to look taller and how we thought the other was at least 5’7!! In preparing this post, I couldn’t help but go back and read our many DM and text message exchanges where she constantly offered words of encouragement, advice, suggestions and resources. All I could do was read and smile, feeling blessed to have known such a remarkable woman!
We all had the pleasure of having a front row seat to her life loving her style and hair, but inspired by her passion and hustle. And that never changed!!! Watching Kyrzayda fight that fight everyday and allow us all to be present for her journey represents the strength and dedication this women had! She will continue to inspire us as women to follow our dreams, push through adversity, overcome obstacles, shatter glass ceilings and never every give up on what we love! “Go, do it, don’t wait for another day, or another hour, or another time. Go and do it now.” -Kyrzayda #fckcancer #kyrzaydarodriguez

    Love this!!! Can’t believe she’s passed. She’s how I started following you. She posted a picture tagging you & saying beautiful things. & the style spoke for it self it was a must follow. She’s so truly missed. A fighter like no other. ❤️❤️

    😢💔🙌😇💜💔😭🙏 Beautifully said and beautiful pictures! Still hard to believe she's gone but knowing she's at peace gives me consolation. My human side still wants her to be here posting pictures but she would be suffering so I easily let her sway from my mind😢 I'm thankful you got the opportunity to meet her in person and share a personal friendship @layllahstyle Praying for comfort for your heavy heart🙏💔⚘ Prayers continued for her family as well and for those of us that got to know her via all of her social outlets as if we'd met her in person💗

    The beauty of her soul shone through every photo until the end. I feel like I lost a friend eventhough I have never had the privilege of meeting her. She literally glowed. The fashion/blogger world lost a great one but teinkle of her star ⭐️ will never dim! May she rest in beautiful sleep! Where there is no pain, no nausea - only bliss! ❤️🙏🏾❤️ #ripkryzayda

    I cannot believe you both are 5’2, but that’s a beautiful dedication for your friend. Kryzayda’s last video had me in tears. She was a fighter and a true inspiration. She’ll be missed. Xx
