"This is for the girl who did not have the gift of being told that she would be ok doing what she loved. Whose mother was so failed by the world she couldn't tell you you could succeed in anything. So oppressed by the world she couldn't tell you that you had the right to be free within it. Whose mother was so ignored by the world she couldn't tell you that you could stand in the centre of it.
"That you, woman, could stand in the centre of your family, of your own life, of a story. She simply didn't have the evidence. In many ways, it really rather sucks, to start with so many setbacks: poor, dark female. But from those setbacks, come a resilience, a hardiness, a perseverance that cannot be replicated. Find it in yourself, and there you will find your story already written. Thank you."
She's our fave ❤
