From July 11th- August 27th, 2017 one of my photos was on exhibition at CityCenter DC as part of  FotoDC’s annual Style Competition. On ... Read More

Today is World Sickle Cell Day as such, I thought I would share this video project I created about my experience with photography, sickle cell and how the two are intertwined for me personally. The project was recorded in 2013 on a Nikon D7000 as an assignment for my Advance Photo Techniques Class.

Let’s talk about Chewing Gum

Let’s talk about Chewing Gum 

First of all, let’s not compare it to Insecure (which I also loved). It’s easy to say it’s the British Insecure/ Awkward Black Girl but if you really watch both you’ll see that comparing the two doesn’t do either series justice. Issa has her life together waaayy more than Tracey. The two face different issues ... Read More
