#DiaryOfFly and Beanies

Hey loves, today I'm coming to you with some exciting news. I am teaming up with Esther Armah for THE SWAGGER of MEAN campaign as part of the EJ International Team. Emotional Justice Unplugged (EJU) Season 4 is a NYC city wide conversation series aimed at teenage girls. Using the EJ process, the aim is to create a process that acknowledges and discusses how much swagger mean has and then identifies highlights, celebrates, acknowledges the power of fly in each girl. The aim is for girls to see and identify their own beauty, power, fly and to do so in each other. 

You dolls know that mentoring young women is a passion of mine and I try to do so every chance I get as seen HERE and HERE. My intern Asantee whom is a valued member of the #NajaDiamond team and whom I mentor frequently will be helping me spread the word of this awesome movement and I would love it if you would too. To help you simply identify something that is FLY about you on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #DiaryofFly. We also want you dolls to take a moment and #SwagSalute a friend or shero you find FLY! Too often us women, young and old, do a lot of tearing each other down and not enough of lifting each other up. Let's encourage each other dolls, if you see a doll who is FLY show her some love and shoot her a #SwagSalute. Today I would like to #SwagSalute my cuzzo Taherra whom I love to pieces and just wanted to take a minute to let her know that I think she is an awesome woman, wife, mother, daughter, big cuz and friend. I love you and am so proud of you and all your wonderful accomplishments! 

#DiaryofFly For the first time EVER my weight gain is starting to show in my legs (in a bad way....i.e. Cellulite), they are certainly my most prized possessions and favorite body part.
