I pose left and right
Different angles highlight the different cultures that make up my being
Sometimes black and sometimes from the Philippines
My hue infused by the Cherokee
Splashes of red and brown
The German side hides subdued by more dominant genes
Eyes small with a slant that’s slight
Seeing everything as it should be
My hair porous, long and sleek
Lips full and pink
Pieces all apart of me
Materials sewn together that complete me
No I will not and cannot choose one
Nor will I be reduced to a mere label
I will pose and show off each
I am proud and unique
Dear President Sullivan and the UVA Administration,
As I begin writing this letter, I already worry about the possibility of it falling on deaf ears and being lost in the flurry of media contacts, damage control efforts, and alumni and parent outrage that must surely be coursing through the highest offices of UVA right now. If President Sullivan (or should I say her PR team)’s emotionless response letter yesterday was any indication, UVA’s administration is already in a tone-deaf defense mode, emphatically trying to salvage the school’s reputation rather than deal with the disturbing issues at hand. However, if there is anything UVA taught me, it is that my voice can and should be heard so I intend to share my feelings on the matter.
While at UVA, I was deeply involved both in Greek life and in student government. I served as the Vice President of the College Council…
I Love a great stain
When my lips look as though I have eaten handfuls of berries
The color prominent and almost garish
Layer upon layer of reddish purple, Brilliantly perfect
I can’t stop, I won’t stop painting
I feel disgusting.
Like I am wearing a coat of stress and guilt.
It feels awful…gross….like an itchy thrift store sweater.
I will admit, it is my fault for trying on this texture, but does this material of life ever get better?
I do not trust my choices all too often..
I tend to go for worn, vintage, holy and feathered..
I’m sick of the feeling and I need a stylist
Please God will you help make my wardrobe better
I want to perfect my soul so that I can be of love and light unto others…
I want to be a positive infection, not an Ebola biotch! Feel me on this one?
I want to help others and I cannot do that unless I help myself
I want to give my all and my best to this world, nothing less
An amazing Inspirational House DJ and a personal friend from the SF Bay Area!
I met him at an open mic and after performing he invited me to be apart of his first annual Sent From Above Musik Festival back in June! I had a great time on stage! I loved the lighting and sound. It was perfect!
Be sure to check out his Soundcloud! He has the dopest house/ dance mixes! Perfect for cleaning and working out. Gets you in the zone!
