The one thing I truly enjoyed about growing up in a Caribbean household was how my parents were all about GROWING their own food. Before Hurricane Charley came, I was able to go to my backyard and eat whatever I wanted. Soursop, sweetsop, ackee, lemon, orange, coconut, avocado, tomato, watermelon, guava, pineapple. You name it, my mum most likely had it.
It’s natural hair month and this lovely queen has a challenge for you.
Freedom… It’s hard growing up in a world where people judge you by looks and stereotype you. A world where beauty is depicted by covers of magazines. Living in a world of materialism and society having an expectation of you being somebody OTHER than yourself; which kills the essence of being an individual. Everybody was made differently, and that’s why LOVING yourself as you are is BEAUTIFUL. That’s freedom! Freedom of loving myself as I am and not having to conform to society’s definition of “beautiful”.
