“Life for me ain been no crystal stair”
_ Langston Hughes
This has been a series of fortunate events, unhappy accidents, and hard headed/ soft behinded lessons.
(I’ll spare you the stale tea)
Trauma often has a hand in shaping who we are, but we don’t have to be our Trauma.
Learning to exist in a world that despises almost all parts of my identity was…. “not super fun”.
However, it did give me the gift of a developing a real “personality”.
One that consistently pulls me to navigate the darkest parts of life with both humour and empathy.
As a Critical Race Theorist turned Freelance Culture Critic, my worldview allows me to examine all aspects of pop culture with my lens trained to highlight the queer, the fat, the black, the witchy, the goth, the nerdy, the femme, and the weird!
Currently, I serve as Director Of Brand Growth for the amazing community & educational platform Equality For Her.
On twitter, I reign as Gif Queen Supreme @BlackMajiik . I also have a fledgling YouTube Channel where I post cosplay tutorials, nerd out over shows, talk about mental health, and recreate iconic looks. Subscribe!!
(but I ALWAYS have something else bubbling over the rim!)
