Had a blast yesterday at Governor’s Ball 😄 Ran into some old frannns, met some new ones, almost died in an Earl Sweatshirt mob, mellowed out with BANKS, danced with Foster the People, & most importantly…MADE DIRECT EYE CONTACT WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTIST (J.Cole)😁😁😁 Completely worth my current bloodshot eyes😴 #Governorsball #JCole #imgonnafallasleepatmydesk #completelyworthit #justliveit (at The Governors Ball Music Festival)

May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.- “Nelson Mandela” Last year, while resting on a volunteer house bunk bed in Indian I decided to take a terrifying risk & put law school off for a bit. At the time I had NO plan B, & I couldn’t even imagine my next steps. BUT I had take back the paintbrush & begin to redesign my life around what made ME happy, as opposed to allowing fear to influence what this picture is “SUPPOSED” to look like! Best decision of my life…I’m please to announce that this fall I will be attending my number one choice: American University Washington College of Law😁🎨😁 #Godisgood #neversettle #whathappenedtosendingtshirts #iguessthiswilldo #justbelieveit

FUN FACT: Out of the 7 students in my fencing class, 2 people are going into law school & 1 person is finishing up their last year…ALL 3 of us are women😉 There must be some strange correlation between being an attorney & stabbing your opponent with a sabre…WHO KNEW? 😂 #wcw #ambitiousfemaleswhocanfence #strange #funfacts #smilingthroughmymask #noonecanseeit #justfenceit (at New Amsterdam Fencing Academy)

"Whether you have a Ph.D., or no D, we’re in this bag together. And whether you’re from Morehouse or Nohouse, we’re still in this bag together. Not to fight to try to liberate ourselves from the men — this is another trick to get us fighting among ourselves — but to work together with the black man, then we will have a better chance to just act as human beings, and to be treated as human beings in our sick society."-Fannie Lou Hammer👏

I’m very behind with sharing pictures lately. BUT I would be remiss with myself if I didn’t honor the Spirit of the civil rights movement on her special day🙏. A salute to those of us who are “sick & tired of being sick & tired”✊#fannielouhamer

"Act as if anything is possible. There are certain things that are only learned by doing the work. DO THE WORK!"-Dr. Angela Davis✊Have a conversation with one of my favorite people on EARTH✔Basically one of the best weeks of my life. Happy International Women’s Day!!!🌍😆😁😍😆#AngelaDavis #thishappened #bucketlist #Blessed #noreallythishappened

"I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda. I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole."- الحاجّ مالك الشباز (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz)
Never Forgotten🙏

One of my favorite one fruit blends: 4 bananas🍌, some cinnamon, a little coconut water, & vanilla silk milk (using water alone taste JUST as amazing). Simple yet DELICIOUS 😝 #smoothielife #bananasareSOcheapatBJ’s #noimeanfilthycheap #asin18for$3cheap #iknowright #justblendit

"Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons.One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world."🙌- Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl who was shot in the head by the Taliban for wanting an education and survived, in her keynote speech to the United Nations, July 12th, 2013.

When life gives you lemons🍋…grab some strawberries🍓& treat yourself to Homemade Strawberry-Lemonade 😋

Bring a cup of water & a cup of sugar ( I used honey instead🍯), to a boil, & let it cool! Then blend up about a pint of strawberries & add it to the water. Next add a cup of FRESH lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)! Finally add around 24-28oz of water (depending on your palate you can always add more later)! Mix it up, grab some ice (or SNOW for my East Coasters❄) & ENJOY!!! 😄😄😄
