Another year older... let's chat.

I turned 25 a few days ago. I was feeling extremely discouraged with everything happening after the death of George Floyd. I expand more on my thoughts in my vlog although I am going to leave you with this message I put on my Instagram.

"Today, I turn 25.

I have spent the past few days in anger and pain. 2020 has been a year that I planned to forget. I find it difficult to celebrate another year added to my life when my black brothers and sisters had that joy taken away from them. ‪I choose to smile because they want us to hide and quiver. I choose to speak up because they want us silent. I am grateful for my 25th year of life. I am proud of my black skin and the culture that comes with it. Even though, I live in a country that tells and shows me otherwise.‬ Thank you to everyone that is speaking up about the injustice. We are in an election year, please vote. Let our chants and demands for change turn into law."
