Y'all ever just think about your life? Like I’m 19, I have CPTSD, I’ve lived in almost every region of America essentially, I don’t have a home in the regards being a place I feel I belong. Albuquerque is nice, a good town, I can hike in the mountains whenever I want essentially, but I don’t feel at home here. Boston was my first City, it is where my love of Dunkin’s came about, and if i had to give myself a “hometown” it’d be the Jamaica Plains neighborhood of Boston, but I didn’t live there long. After that was Concord, NYC, Burlington, NOLA, Atlanta, Charleston, New Canaan, Houston, and now I am here. Where do I belong? Do I belong anywhere? What purpose do i fulfill? Am I just supposed to wander this country until i just Stop?


Aamito Lagum, Achok Majak, Ajak Deng, Ajuma Nasenyana, Alek Wek, Angok Mayen, Grace Bol, Mari Agory and Nykhor Paul. You never see them at Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Versace, etc.. Like Nykhor Paul said “…people need to expand their idea of what black models can do. Black beauty can be Chanel, black beauty can be Dior.” This needs to change. Black models with darker skin should/also deserve to be casted by bigger names/brands.

*Alek has done Chanel, Dior, Valentino and YSL a very long time ago.
