✨ movement is purpose ✨
moving my body to the flow of yoga (yin/yang or hatha) has been such a haven for me these last few months. if you feel lost on this world, remember that this body is yours and find purpose using movement 💗
"DO THE WORK!" This lady right here is one seriously impressive sista!!! SIS inspired me with her work ethic, drive, and ambition. On weekends she's putting in work, and through the holidays when everyone else is breaking she's creating. When people are telling her to enjoy life she goes even harder (even at events she's putting in work). Her enjoyment of life is the pursuit and fulfillment of her dreams. Don't know her work? Sure you do. She's styling from the likes of Beyonce to TLC. She did a repurposed bomber jacket for rapper, 50 Cent. Soon as I saw that jacket I knew there were endless possibilities and ideas yet to be created. She's sought after and for good reason - a beautiful soul, kind heart, and soooooo much creativity. THANK YOU @breabstar for staying true to who you are and paving the way for others. You are a trailblazing woman who even as a little girl was living way ahead of her time. Your creativity is one of a kind! Thank you for the inspiration and all the lessons!!! #celebrateSIS#SeriouslyImpressiveSister#grateful#humbledbyitall#creditwherecreditisdue#blackdesigners#bkackgirlsbeenmagic#blackgirlpower#workdontstop#shebuiltapowerhouse#deeamsdocometrue#work#liveinpurpose#liveonpurpose#liveyourpurpose
15/12, dia do Arquiteto 😎 Muito mais do que ajudar às pessoas a encontrarem seu lugar, este ano desejo que possamos encontrar nosso próprio lugar; que cada um de nós tenha a oportunidade de conhecer, reconhecer e estar ao lado das pessoas cujo ímpeto de reconhecer e dar o que verdadeiramente precisamos seja infinitamente superior ao de dar o que queremos;
Porque isso é aplicar o melhor de nossas profissões em nossas próprias vidas - é o meu desejo para nós este ano 💫🙏💫 No destaque: June Grant e Deanna Van Buren, Arquitetas em ação no coworking @bigoaklandspace 😎
15/12 Architect's Day 😎 much more than helping people find their place, this year I wish we could find our own place; That each of us has the opportunity to know, recognize and be alongside people whose impetus to recognize and give what we truly need is infinitely greater than to give what we want;
Because this is to apply the best of our professions in our own lives - it's my wish for us this year 💫🙏💫 in the spotlight: June Grant and Deanna Van Buren, architects in action at Coworking @bigoaklandspace 😎

Had my interview with NC State's fashion program.....let's just say I nailed it! Being able to showcase my designs was very scary...they loved the pieces that I brought and submitted....and said it was hard to believe I was self taught with no professional training. I received a lot of information in regards to the business portion and how to get my pieces manufactured as well as be the creative designer for major companies! I am beyond proud of myself. I am so motivated and excited to start next fall. Thank you guys for all of the support. Now i have to get back to work
