I just want to formally apologize to everyone for being away for so long. It’s not that I’ve been busy but, the technical difficulties have been an ongoing problem for so long. Even while this was going on I was still trying to post for you guys but then I had WordPress issues. As of now I am back and ready to share with you all so many neat poems and stories! Thank you for the continuous support and stay tuned! 🙂

Hello my loves, as described in my previous post about my experience at the Disney Dreamers Academy I wanted to create a separate post to really express my appreciation for this program. I would like to thank the organization along with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE Magazine and a special message for my DDA Family.
Hello my loves I hope everyone is having a fantastic day! It is time for the conclusion of my DDA experience. I’ll be taking you through day 3 and my graduation day in addition to some pretty exciting news! I hope you all enjoy!
Time for round 2 my lovely readers! This is part 2 of my Disney Dreamers Academy experience. You can read part 1 of DDA in “Currently KC”.
Day 2 “You’ve got an interview for 7 am” Ms.Sharon says. My alarm was set for 5:45 just like it is for school. I woke up that morning feeling tired of course but it was a different kind of tired. I was tired of sleeping on all the great things that the world and all that God has in store for me. With that thought in mind, I sprang out of bed. I met Ms. Sharon and my two other friends out at the buses and thus the day commenced. First stop, Epcot show hall for breakfast and a talk with Mr. Jonathan Sprinkles.

Hello my loves! I’m finally back after that period of deferment. Just had a bit to catch up on, but now I have returned and with a load of things to share. The highlight of my year so far has been this program that I was so blessed to be apart of, The Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE Magazine. This is an academy that takes its 100 winners on a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and teaches them networking, leadership skills, and how to connect with others on a wider platform all while making new friends. Through essay selection, I was fortunate enough to be 1/6,000 applicants to be accepted. By the end of this 4 day academy, I am proud to say that I am a graduate of the DDA class of 2016!
Hello my lovely readers! Today I saw this post while scrolling through my Instagram feed, and it resonated with me rather heavily. I understood the whole premise of the post because I felt and have seen other females feel afraid to love themselves because they could not get past the fact that society doesn’t admire a dark-skinned girl. It is sad that girls of my color are so busy being torn down by their melanin instead of embracing the warm hues of ebony clothing us. This post actually drove me to write a poem entitled, “Black Girl”.
“You are 16 going on 17
Baby its time to think
Be canny and careful
Baby you’re on the brink”

Today marks my final day as a sixteen year old. It is so bittersweet in that ever since I was a little girl of twelve all I ever wanted was to be sixteen. To live up to every movie I had ever watched about coming of age. To be “Pretty In Pink” and blow out my “Sixteen Candles”. But as time rolls down I begin to reflect on my year thus far… Continue reading ““Auf Wiedersehen 16””
I’m going to be quite honest with the way I view our society and how it’s made itself evident at my school. I feel bad for the people around me. I don’t feel bad for them in terms of academics because the statement is true that you get out what you put in. I feel bad for these students because of how the world has warped us to look at ourselves and each other. I walk through the halls everyday and I feel as though a future doesn’t motivate most anymore. I feel that people only make actions for recognition and approval from others.
