When I first moved to the US, I initially minimized the racial divide. Then, it gave me the opportunity to look into who I am as a person. It wasn't a struggle but just an affirmation of who I am. I never want to apologize for being black, beautiful, strong, intelligent and powerful. I use that power to fix the crowns of the kings and queens in my life, regardless of their background because representation matters.
I'm proud of my heritage because It is the essence of who I am and I love it....plus, what is the alternative ;-)
Biggest misconception people haveIt is how we see ourselves. When I look in the mirror, I see who God created me to be and I am thankful.
Why do you think Diversity matters?Because the alternative is unthinkable. I have friends of all races, religion, etc. At the end of the day, I only see them for who they are. Diversity is simply beautiful.
