These are my babies! Our Firm is a proud supporter of Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School and we have 4 amazing interns. Cristo Rey matches business interests with the educational and economic needs of lower-income students, giving them the best chance of overcoming the financial barriers that limit their educational and professional opportunities.

I took on the task of creating a program at the Firm where the interns got the opportunity to meet with attorneys and staff. Every week they met with graphic designers, computer technicians, associates, partners, and business development leaders. I never received the answer of “No.” from anyone I asked and they were all enthusiastic to meet with our interns.
They gained knowledge and wisdom on choosing a career and a college, time management skills, and so much more. Feedback from the people who they have met with describes them as poised, articulate, and as trailblazers!

I am so blessed to be in a position where I can lift as I climb.

the #backstory

When I saw this picture posted by one of my fave accounts @chakabars , it resonated with me on a deep level. Apart from being a nature lover, I am wholly a #blackwoman.

Like trees, we rise above the odds in a world that builds its perception of us upon its own ideologies. You can plant us anywhere and we will #riseup. Concrete jungles of limited opportunity or harsh climates of unwarranted mysogny? Still, we rise. Relentless in our fight to be exactly who we were created to be, thriving, strong, and anti-gravitational.
Just. like. trees.🌳🌱🌴🍃 #positivenergy #iamwoman #truthtuesday #beinspired #chakabars #melaninmovement #stillirise #abovetheodds #myblackisbeautiful #strength #blackempowerment #natureenthusiast #lifestyleblogger #adventurer #nonconformist
°Follow @mamusu.nyande and read her blog regarding the lack of inclusion of people of colour in the makeup industry.
I am not a huge make up user but one of the main reasons I don't is to do with the fact that I know I would struggle to find the right products for myself. I have tried it and numerous times the shade doesn't match or I find the right one and it costs $50 and has to be custom made.
As you can see on my face, these are just a few of the darkest shades in the foundation ranges of a select amount of companies and majority of them are too light for me. I am not the darkest person out there so I can only imagine how much harder it is for people darker than me. I could get away with forcing some of the shades if I needed to but why should we have to do that?
Enough is enough.
