What do you want to share with the world?

I aim to shift the global perception of the word ‘Black’ and show that Black is regal and rich in history, in purpose and in lineage, there is a wide variety of African music, styles, dances, costumes, hairstyles, settings and traditions. We as human beings inherit the riches of love, community and purpose promised by our ancestors. These are the keys that the future generation can look to, to find hope, find strength, find healing, and be the best version of themselves.
