KNOWING YOUR WORTH
YOU ARE VALUABLE.
Nobody's validation is worth lowering your value for. This life we have been gifted with, is far too short to be spent on chasing things and people that do not belong in our lives. The sooner you realise that you too, are deserving of the love you spoil others with, the sooner you will take some time out to actually give it to yourself. You deserve the love you give.
FINDING YOUR PEACE
YOUR SOLACE LIES IN YOUR SOLITUDE.
The peace is within you. Always has been, always will be. We often get so caught up in trying to 'look happy', that we actually forget to simply be happy. The pursuit of worldly happiness often revolves around ideas other people have created for us, which we then project onto ourselves and use to convince ourselves that we just aren't doing 'well enough'. If only we knew that as long as we are doing something we love, we are doing just fine.
OWNING YOUR BEAUTY
YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT.
Often, we find ourselves spending more time comparing ourselves rather than appreciating. But we aren't to blame. We are living in a world where companies sell us solutions to 'fix' what isn't broken, by convincing us that we have all these flaws we should get rid of in order to be perceived as desirable. Sadly, no amount of 'perfection' can make you completely happy with yourself. Instead of chasing empty ideals, why not focus on building a relationship with the parts of yourself that you've been taught to hate?

My TedX Talk
Releasing the Fear of Being Alone...
Being a black woman who deals with a lot of subtle friction in her industry, she’s managed to find the balance between speaking up and calling out inequality in the industry whilst maintaining a relatable, fun and infectious attitude. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
