Yesterday warmed my heart so much! 💕It reminded me how much I missed being in the classroom and how we tend to forget the importance of education. We are able to shape the future right now and we must take responsibility for improving the state of education in all communities!! I started working with @jumpstartkids1 while in college and saw how firsthand our work in the classroom helped students in lower income areas make necessary gains. In lower income areas children start kindergarten 60% behind there more affluent peers. When children start behind they tend to stay behind; a child not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade is 4x more likely to drop out of high school. A child's success in school starts early and we must provide quality early childhood education to ALL children regardless of socioeconomic background. Thank you #jumpstart for the amazing work you do! #rftr

If only everyone used the gifts they were given this world would be a better place. You make others suffer when you do things you dislike. If your not going to search for your passion for yourself.. at least do it for the world around you. This was on my mind this morning just wanted to share it with you all. 🌍 ✌🏾💕💪🏾 #wereallconnected#happywednesday
Last night with the creators and team of the yoga/spa co-op @bereplenish . I fell in love with this black owned spa on my first trip to Columbus Ohio and go back any chance I get. You ladies do such important work helping heal people mind, body and soul. So glad I met you all ...we need more of this in the world ❤️ Always! If your ever in Columbus go check them out for all your meditation, yoga and spa needs!
I am so grateful to be in the new @glamourmag November issue created entirely by women! Our support of each other's work is a vital part of our progress towards equality, so go get your copy today!! Every bit we do reworks the connotation of women as a symbol of unwavering strength and creativity. We already know this.... now it's time to unapologetically show out!!! 💪🏾💕🔥Photo by @oliviamalone makeup @kalikennedy hair @marandahair stylist @djunabel set design @aligeeze #womendesigners#womenempowerment#glamourmagazine#suprememanagement
