My Ups and Downs with Self Love
It's safe to say that struggling with self love is something that all of us have dealt with at one point or another. Self love is a continuous journey that needs to be worked on at all times. A few years ago, I was in a place where I loved everything about myself, I loved everything about my life and my friends. I thought I was golden and nothing could stop me. Then all of a sudden, when I stopped working on my self love every day it all came crumbling down and I am still working my way up that battle to where I was before. As much as it is a let down, mainly because I can see a huge difference in my life and the way I walk through my day to day activities, I hope that I will come out stronger than I was before because I now know what both sides feel like: self hate and self love.
Why I Like to Let the Sistas Hang Low
So let's talk about something that most of us, if not all us women have had to deal with at some point or another in our lovely lifetime. There's a lot that falls under this category: some good, some bad, and some just simply annoying. Right now, I will complain about bras because I know for a fact that I am not the only one out there who hates wearing them. Don't get me wrong, some of them can be very cute, especially when you get one in your favourite colour and it just adds that little bit of confidence you need to conquor the day. But most of them have something annoying about them.
I wrote a feminist speech titled "Our Differences Make Us Stronger, WE are Survivors"
So I took two summer classes in the second half of the semester at Carleton.

Let me know your feedback and if you think I missed important aspects of intersectionality!
To You, My Dear Darling, An Inspiration
I've written this poem for all of the friends in my life who have supported me in some way or another. You've all inspired me and have taught me priceless lessons about friendship, heartbreak, and finding the beauty in the little things. This is also for anyone who is feeling down, not feeling like themselves or not feeling worthy.
My Mediocre Take On How Communication Is Essential To Getting What You Want
I understand and recognize that I am coming from a place of privilege, education, and good parenting, and as a result of my circumstance, I consider myself not a total idiot when it comes to communication. I also acknowledge that there are different types of communication, such as verbal and nonverbal communication along with physical communication. It is something that happens all around us, every day of our lives and sometimes you may not even know it! But it is definitely an essential part of our society and without communication, we would be even more of a mess than we already are if you can believe it or not.
