On Giving & Receiving Criticism as a #SmartBrownGirl

Part of being a #SmartBrownGirl is always striving to do better, even in areas that are not easy to confront. Criticism is high up on the chart of difficult to broach subjects and post my Lack of Support and Losing Friends post, I’ve had every intention of covering this topic. But it’s touchy, so I […]

On: Maya Angelou

Am I late? I’m late on purpose as I look to avoid the too easy to jump on bandwagon of saying all the cliche things for clicks bandwagon that is the mourning of a celebrity/famous/notable on social media. And here’s where I want to start singing “Maya, Maya, Maya, Maya” like Minnie Riperton, except nah…I […]

Connecting the Dots: Steve Jobs & Living for You (Redux)

Another personal post. This one is real to me, I re-read it and it brought back so many emotions and thoughts. This happened a year ago and in that year I’ve lost friends in a way more touching way then this. Like I really lost a friend in the physical sense and to this day it still […]
