So I wrote a book...
Yeah a whole friggin BOOK! And I cannot wait to share it with my Fam-Bam here.
During my social media break, one of my goals was to manifest my idea from 2+ years ago into a reality.
I wanted to create something that aligns with my brand's mission but continue to live years from now (as who knows where Instagram will be 10 years from now, 20 years from now).
I’ve been extremely blessed to have traveled to 30 countries and 35 states. That not only provides me with memories that will last a lifetime but has allowed me to accumulate a lot of wisdom that I want to share.
I want to educate others.
I want to inspire my community.
I want to amplify other underrepresented voices.
So now I am revealing this passion project, this legacy with you my Fam-Bam!
I hope all of you – whether you have been with me from Day 1 or just recently stumbled upon my page – stick with me for the ride.

Inspiration for My Book
I was inspired by 𝙑𝙞𝙘𝙩𝙤𝙧 𝙃𝙪𝙜𝙤 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙚𝙣’𝙨 𝙉𝙚𝙜𝙧𝙤 𝙈𝙤𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙚𝙣𝙗𝙤𝙤𝙠, the pioneer, and originator of curating lists of safe spaces for Black people. He set an example for others to follow.

The educator in me wanted to take the concept of the green book to the next level by curating a book of resources AND educating on HOW to use these resources — providing history, rationale, tips and strategies, and my personal narrative.
My book provides the HOW, complementing these past green books.
Now I am the third green book, a modern day green book! As they say, 3 times is a charm!
