I have always been told I was different, mostly odd.
I was continuously told to stay "normal" and stop being so "extra". It has broken me several times when no-one could see the extent to which my creative "me" wanted to come out.
As a young black woman, being different is not always a good thing.
When you are considered different it is never positive. I am embracing that cruel translation of my life and making it my own.
I do this for young women, older women, angry women, happy women, tall women, short women. This is for women who want something different and are searching for that ideal place.
I aim to create an avenue for those "odd," "weird" and "different" people who are pushed out of place. We are all beautifully imperfect.
