alis volat propriis - “she flies with her own wings” • in this week’s mindful fighter challenge we were prompted to write 5 minutes worth of “I am” statements. the more I wrote the more I noticed how much this tattoo really means to me. • because for all the statements that ended with descriptors like “soft” , “shy” , or “critical” , there were 5 more that held power , strength , & ferocity. • because no matter the doubt or fear that might linger inside of me , no one but me has the power to propel my dreams forward. every single day. • keep crushing it , fighters. you inspire me to keep going!

I’m tired. but I know I can’t be silent. I need to protect my community , my friends , my family , MY SKIN. I have felt like an imposter more times than I can count - questioning if I can really understand the black experience being biracial and having a white mother. as I sit here feeling this collective pain , I realize how silly that is - I am black. being half black doesn’t make me “less” black. I don’t feel less pain. I don’t feel less “other.” I don’t feel less offended when I observe or experience racism. I am black because it’s in my blood , it’s in my light , it’s who I am. _____________________ I know I have a unique perspective as a yoga teacher of color in Boston - there are so few of us here. the pervasive question in my mind is how can I use my platform to help and promote change I can use my love of teaching and movement to bring awareness and give back. my upcoming virtual classes on IG LIVE this weekend will be donation based. I will be splitting 100% of contributions between George Floyd’s GoFundMe campaign and the Minnesota Freedom Fund. please join me as we celebrate the freedom to move our bodies , and give back. _____________________ to my black brothers and sisters: the light in me acknowledges , honors , respects , admires , and loves the light within each of you. 🖤
