January 20, 2018 was one for the books—- the LA Women’s March left us everything BUT speechless.
Still gathering all my thoughts, but I can’t help but say...wow.
Wow to the sentiment of l o v e that was felt by so many different walks of life and to the countless smiles, high-fives, fists in the air, chanting, hugs, and life that stimulates all of one’s senses. And let’s not forget the endless wafting of bacon wrapped hotdogs from street vendors that also cheered us on...(don’t worry my vegan powers deflected every temptation)
Cristal and I have worked hard on an individual level to pull out our inner voice, and learn to trust it. I’m still learning, but today solidified the undeniable sentiment that together, our soft whispers magnify to larger than life volumes.
This journey hasn’t been easy, but neither has it been in vain. Today, we met some incredible people, including recording artist, activist, and fellow sister-Queen, Ms.Andra Day.
We shared a brief but an impactful conversation all in gratitude for the role she personally played in helping to bring Herstory to life. It is why her single “Rise Up” is still our personal anthem years after our launch.
We are both on an incredible high from all of the incredible speakers and guests that were in attendance. Next year we will be joining you on that same stage—(hey, a girl can dream right?)
Till next week Queens and Kings in solidarity we stand, we speak up, and we march!
