A chick named Bertram
Terms that relate to me: Female, Leo, Jamaican-American, New Yorker.

Honestly, this is the part of the page where I always have nothing to say because I have no idea how to describe myself. Hopefully over time I can learn how to do that. (Yeah, I know. That was kind of a copout.) I just plan on using this blog as a place where I can say whatever is on my mind.

I’m so freaking sick of cancer. If you’re a frequent viewer of natural hair videos on YouTube, I’m certain you’re familiar with the dynamic duo @msvaughntv and her sister, @meechymonroe. Meechy was recently diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer & the family has created the #getwellmeechy campaign in hopes of helping with some of the expenses. I have placed the link in my bio for easy access but if you have anything to spare and believe in the power of prayer, please send one up for this family so that Meechy can recover with ease. Additional deets via @strawberricurls IG (REBLOG this you guys; lets do our part and show some LOVE): REPOST FROM @strawberricurls: Meechy’s momentum was cut short on May 31, 2014 when she was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma (or vascular cancerous tumor) in her brain. The tumor caused Meechy to suffer multiple mild strokes, which have led to certain physical and speech challenges including an Aphasia diagnosis (a disturbance of the delivery of language – not at all linked to a loss of intelligence). On May 30th 2014, Meechy underwent her first of two brain surgeries. It was this craniotomy which actually revealed the tumor. In preparation for the procedure, rather than lose her hair, she had it carefully shaved, preserved and donated to Locks of Love—a not-for-profit organization which focuses on Cancer patients coping with hair loss. < amazing to be so giving in her own time of need! Prayers up! #getwellmeechy https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/x155/-getwellmeechy-medical-expense-fund

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

We have to be the biggest promoters of our own stories.  Can’t  depend on CNN to promote inspiring black stories. Just wanted to share this story.  “Graduating from university is normally an occasion for a family get-together. And this was certainly a big celebration for the Ogunsanya quadruplets who were handed their well-deserved degrees from the same university on the same day. The 23-year-old quads, identical sisters and the oldest by four minutes, Toks and Temi Ogunsanya, and identical brothers, Tobi and Tolu, graduated from Warwick University with Master Degrees.  And there was not a jot of sibling rivalry as all four have landed jobs in the City already. Toks graduated with anMEng in manufacturing and engineering and Temi, Tobi and Tolu all gained an MSC in management from Warwick Business School. ‘The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision,’ says Tobi, who thinks a bit of sibling rivalry is essential for success. ‘We are a close-knit family and were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer. ‘We all gravitated to similar courses because we’ve always been interested in business and management and our father is a successful businessman in Nigeria.’ The quads, originally from Lagos, Nigeria, have been living in the UK since the age of seven when they began boarding schools. Since leaving university they have all landed top city jobs. Toks is due to start working for RBS in London later this year, Temi, who interned at Santander over the summer, has been offered a permanent position with the bank, and Tolu is due to start working for one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms in the City. ‘Our parents are four times as proud of us,’ added Tobi, who is mulling over two offers from two major City firms.  ‘They’ve supported us financially and have encouraged us all the way - without their help we wouldn’t be here today.’ “ Source (DailyMail.com/UKnews) Post Made By @solar_innerg#sancophaleague
