I present to you the following:
1. my reaction when there is someone in the audience who has one of my favorite names.
2. one of my many listening faces.
3. my thoughts on conferring and writing workshop
.
It’s always funny to see myself on video and all the Tiyeisms that come through. Thanks for capturing everything @tchadaranga!

My greatest tip for preparing for a presentation is: make sure your braid-out is fresh.
.
Kidding! My greatest tip is to make sure that you bring your laptop with you so that when your file shows up looking INSANE when projected via PC, you can quickly convert that .pptx file to .ppt and look like you have some sense.
.
I did get a hair compliment, though 💁🏿‍♀️ #theblackeducator #phdlife

NEW POST ON THE BLACK EDUCATOR because, of course, I couldn’t leave my own baby high and dry!

This semester, I reclaimed my time and made sure to do most of my academic writing about black girls and black women because it’s what I know, love, and there’s so much out there that still goes unwritten, unexplored, and unshared.
As I enter the final few weeks of the semester, I’m reminded of my track days. I’m in last place in the half-mile, running hunched over and out of breath (asthma is the devil), but I never walk. I may slow to a jog that resembles a walk, but I never walk across that finish line. They may start other races as I finish, but I’m still going to speed up at the end and make sure that my head crosses that finish line before I collapse.

It’s been a long time, shouldna left you, without my dope voice to listen to... She’s getting older, y’all. She needs a seat. 👵🏿 Check out the new audio post on the blog!

What do you think of my voice? It’s the most soothing thing ever, right?

What would I tell 16-year-old Tiye if I could speak to her today? I would tell her that before you look at anyone else, make sure that you are living the life that makes you your own role model. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

My hair does what it wants, and it doesn't mind being in the way when I sit back, lie down, or wear a shoulder bag. Since my hair wants to be so obnoxious, I'm about to start being extremely obnoxious with my hair. I'm talking high, messy buns that block the view of everyone behind me, tying my hair back in a knot because ponytail holders will no longer cooperate, and curls, twists, and braids popping and wrapped in gold. I may go blonder, darker, or add a little something else to the mix.
Obnoxious hair for the culture.

This is the bun that I introduced to the world today. It is the product of boredom in the Dunkin' drive-thru, and waiting 3 whole minutes for the cashier to tell me that they had run out of chocolate frosted. Ponytail and twists because today is a "no hair in my face" kind of day.

Growing up, virginity was taught as such an easy and simple thing to navigate, but it's time for some real honesty.

Whether it's mile-long legs, "Michelle Obama arms", full lips, or a chocolatey skin tone, if I didn't know that I was beautiful, people are quick to remind me. In the age of social media, it's easy to forget that it's no one else's responsibility to remind us that we're beautiful. If beauty is only skin deep, it's all on you, so start with you. .
Stop trying to perfect things that you're told are unattractive or problematic. If you want to see change, get realistic about what it's going to take to make those changes happen while accepting the impossible. Perfection is impossible. .
The way you see yourself on the outside begins with how you view yourself on the inside: changing your mindset, your lifestyle, and truly loving yourself are the only ways you'll ever be comfortable with embracing your physical beauty. .
There's nothing wrong with receiving compliments, but how often have YOU really taken the time to truly appreciate the God-given body that you have? The minute I took the time to look in the mirror and appreciate my body, not criticizing or critiquing, not imagining more symmetry or perfection- but recognizing results of hard workouts, determination to build stamina, and putting more thought into eating things that make sense- that's when I was able to call myself beautiful. It is beautiful to watch your body go from sluggish and tired to energetic and glowing. It is beautiful to look strong, confident, and poised in a way that radiates from within. .
Beauty is a feeling, first and foremost. The outside really doesn't matter when you already feel gorgeous on the inside. .
This post is all about what we see on the outside, but the real question is HOW YOU FEELIN'? Link in bio!
