What do you say when there are no words to dignify the current state our country? I'm not surprised, I'm not shocked, and it really just goes to show how desensitized I am to the news, to the media, and to this president. I just remember the tear gas, the swat gear, the brutality, and arrests at the protests in Ferguson and I'm wondering WHERE ARE THE SWAT TEAMS NOW????? A girl is dead in result of this riot and I look around And I'm truly disgusted. All I can offer on this platform are positive intentions and hope for the future. One day I'll be old telling my grand daughter about these times. And I hope that we can look back and sigh in pride of how times have changed. Let a girl dream 😪
7 days until I see this queen.... who else is going to her concert at the Filmore in Silver Spring???
And that's a wrap on my first paid internship. I've grown so much since starting this position in December. As a minority in a corporate space it's easy to feel small, but I learned to take up as much space with my hair, brain, and personality. My time as an @urbanalliance alliance intern has now come to a close, on to bigger and better things!
I am proud to say that I am an Urban Alliance alumni and recipient of The Maignan Wilkins Scholarship. The day was full of so many tears but I come out saying that I pushed through and have achieved enough scholarships to pay for my college and gap year experience. Even when life is at it's roughest, please just push through.
I took a great excursion of the Capitol yesterday. Here are my favorite statues of color in the Senate: MLK, Rosa Parks, and King Kamehameha, the first King of Hawaii.
