“You are your ancestor’s wildest dream.”

What does it take to start a revolution?

Work.

Passion.

A different way of thinking.

Community.

Over the past month I’ve observed a lot and have taken in a lot of valuable information that I could greatly use to impact my life and my profession. A huge part of what was learned is not being afraid to take on the very things that others won’t.

Just two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the founders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Alicia Garza, and what a moment in time for me it was.

I was in Japan when the hashtag took over timelines all over the world. Having been back in the states for about a year now, it’s almost painful to think that a lot really hasn’t changed since then.

Garza spoke on various topics, but the main point that I took away was “these narratives are not new, but our conditions are.” We are a remake of history unfolding.

This story reminded me that this is only one of many more stories to talk about that represent our generation and the current motions we are going through as a collective. In the new stories that I’ve covered, you will see that shine through.

In addition, I’ve been on a bit of a writing journey through my transitional period, and I am opening myself up to all of you with new poetic pieces.

As usual, I am always open to comments or criticism. I enjoy what I do, and I really hope to just get better and better in my approaches of how I do things and the stories that I tell.

Thank you for your constant support in my endeavors. It really does make a difference.

“The revolution will be televised.”

Because Life Is – Cheers to New Beginnings

I feel like the year has started anew.

Coming back to the University of South Carolina, being in the midst of everyone I hadn’t seen in so long with a brand new mindset and purpose is one of the most amazing feelings you could ever have.

I remember, especially, just 3 years ago I was starting my undergraduate  career as a student. Now, entering my 4th and final year at USC, I couldn’t be  happier with the progress I’ve made and the work that I’ve done, but there is still so much work to be done.



One of the organizations that I was blessed to be apart of during my freshman year was Student Gamecock Television, a station run by students for students. I entered in with the mindset of being able to find my niche so that I could be good enough for TV and gaining skills that could allow me to one day make one cool videos. Now, my passion for this organization is far beyond what it could personally do for me, but more about how I can utilize the platform to help further allow other students to see their own passions.





I’m blessed to have found my family here. 

There’s not one person in this organization that I don’t feel like I have a closeness with. I’m always looking for more and more ways to build relationships with individuals. This semester is no different. Now that my time is winding down, I really hope that everyone in this organization can adopt the same concept. If I’ve learned nothing else being in college, I realize that a big part of your success is attributed to  the relationships you build. 





With anything that you do, you must place focus on leaving a legacy behind. You have four years, and they go by extremely fast. Take control of the precious moments you have, and don’t be afraid to live a little in the process. It’s a journey. I’m grateful for the journey I’ve had, and the continuation of that. 

Cheers to getting back to basics!
