“No matter the circumstances, do not accept defeat at any cost.”
As you all well know, I’ve been a community activist/advocate for more than a decade at this point, but to avoid redundancy, only a quick recap is necessary for all you lovely new readers who’ve recently tuned in.
For the last four weeks, and remainder of the next two, I have been doing videography for an organization with intentions to advocate for many positive things locally and nationwide.
I’m super grateful that I was given the chance and opportunity to be their media coverage gal’
As I prepare myself to head out, I am also crunched for time.
Many of my readers have recently asked me, “What started you on your advocacy journey?”
Which reminds me!
With all the questions I’ve been getting asked, I’ve decided that I’m going to do a Q and A post.
I did not EVER think my bloggerverse would grow large enough to do one of those.
Celebrate good times YEAH!
Right! The point:
In our lives many things are at stake. WE all know that. For me, watching my peers, family members, and much more struggle with epidemics. (Do I need to get into specifics? Cause’ I’m sure y’all know what that means.)
These experiences impacted me in a large way. Understanding that there was a need in our community that wasn’t being met, and is still being unfulfilled…. Initiated my flame. From there, the fire bloomed. As other concerns arose, and became just as prominent, I realized I cared enough to make that difference.
What fuels your fire to make a difference?
Despite the fact that those needs are being un-met especially in regards to the youth of OUR community, and nationwide, I still fight.
Because I believe…At all costs.
At the end of the day, That is all it takes. Believers, and do’ers.
Our youth hold the key to our future.
Therefore, you must ask yourself,
“What kind of future do you want to see, live in and breed?
