You know how dope it is to feel beautiful these days? you know how amazing it is to (despite most marketing messages) feel handsome or cool or sexy? i hope we can all get that feeling. thanks @kenzo for having me as a part of #kenzotheeverything. y’all made me feel great. #ad
The folks at @kenzo asked me what my special power is, and i told them i am a shapeshifter. mostly because as a black q***r androgynous woman i have to adapt and change form, often to protect myself. i always thought this was a flaw, but now i love that i can be whoever i want whenever i want, freely. with this in mind, s/o to the #kenzotheeverything film and project. so dope to be a part of the everything, it’s cool to see a brand like @kenzo embrace shapeshifters like me. #ad
I’ve been told i’m intimidating to approach all my life. i’m a tall girl and when i’m moving, i’m moving, ya know? after years of trying to appease folks, i started to embrace my “scariness” and stress less about how my presence affects people. that’s why i was taken aback when this older black lady came up to me on the subway — i’m in nyc btw! — and told me i have really warm energy. not sure if that reflects more on her than me, but it was dope for a stranger to see softness in me.
