#TheWarriorSeries Volume 1
June 19th is World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. In honor of it, I launched a project that was has been on my heart for some time – #TheWarriorSeries. The Warrior Series is a photo series that redefines what it means to live with sickle cell. I was also honored to have it featured on xoNECOLE: More Than A Statistic: 3 Strong Women Speak Out About Their Triumph Over Sickle Cell Anemia
After a recent stint in the hospital, I began researching documentaries and photo series about sickle cell. Disappointed by what I found – sad stories, stories that narrow in on the pain and, stories that tell how there is no cure, I decided it was time for a different narrative. One of strength, hope and joy.
