December 10th is #HumansRightDay ✊🏾 As we all know in 2020 we have seen a lot of changes, both on a global scale and in our personal lives. It seems that this year has forced us to confront the many ways our society has fallen short in its ability to take care of everyone, especially the members of its most vulnerable sectors. This human rights day let us acknowledge these struggles and speak up for them where we can.✊🏾
May we continue this advocacy, because we all deserve human rights. Let’s not just talk to people inside our own bubble about equality, let’s reach outside.✊🏾
Happy Thanks-GIVING friends 🎉🌟 In the spirit of giving thanks and keeping gratitude in our hearts during this moment – I took time to gather canned goods for a blessing box I’ve been fortunate enough to donate too a couple of times this year.☑️
I’ve been reflecting on this pass year and how appreciative i am to have family and a place to celebrate the holidays, so I wanted to pay it forward 🌟
I encourage / challenge you to donate, give or volunteer during this time if you’re fortunate enough to. There are so many organizations and people who would be more than thankful for your help❤️💐
I was very fortunate to have have met Dr. Vanessa Guyton and her awesome nonprofit that she’s running to raise awareness and to educate others about domestic violence in South Carolina.
We walked for the victims who are now survivors and those who are still suffering.
Domestic violence is a real issue in South Carolina and it’s only through educating others around us and educating ourselves that we can recognize the signs to help others, utilize resources and make a difference. I choose to #HushNoMore ✊🏾
So honored i was able to read for @ReadingWithRoyalty_ this past weekend.
Reading With Royalty is a outlet where different pageant queens can read to children in hospitals virtually!
I was able to read the book, ‘The Class Play’ by Robert Newell. I chose this book because the moral of this story was to show children that they should be grateful for the things they have and are chosen for.
Is the grass really greener on the other side? Sometimes exactly where you are is where you need to be.
Education is so important and I’m happy i can still promote literacy during COVID-19.
South Carolina has definitely become a hot spot for the rise of the covid crisis happening around us. This means our health care workers are laboring tirelessly to keep people healthy while risking their own lives. They are honestly the true heroes. So on behalf of some of my @northamericabeautypageant sisters @officialelitenorthamerica ( @marylynnfuller )and @jrmissna ( @adriana_maliamay ) and myself, we decided to collaborate and make thank you cards for these awesome people. With deepest sincerity, I want to thank you all for risking your lives for us day in and day out. Front line workers like you deserve our respect, encouragement, and praise for doing what you do. Thank you! Although I wasn’t aloud (with great understanding) to visit the hospital itself, I gave everything to Diane, the liaison and I trust they’re in good hands to hand off to our South Carolinas heroes.
if there is any way i can try to spread good energy during this time, i will. Everyone around us deserves it. Stay safe guys 💚
“Everybody deserves clean air, water and a healthy food supply” ♻️💚 Connecting climate change to the community. I was excited to sit in at the @sustainingway ‘s virtual open house zoom meeting yesterday evening. Learning more informative ways on how to protect the environment and it’s natural resources for my community’s health and prosperity was super informative. Listening to the guest speaker James Woodley talk about his experience and what we can do to get involved now got me really inspired.
I’m working on solidifying my own nonprofit ‘Its More Than Food” which provides sustainable and ethical resources for food while educating others on their carbon footprint and how they can get involved now. So being able to be a part of this gave me lots of information to get more ideas together. ✍🏾📚 We are fighting for a livable future. We are organizing our communities to ignite a transformational era that ends the climate crisis by centering economic and racial justice.
