Oh sorry for the lack of posts this week..I've been busy busy with school because we had to hand in a paper... I wrote a paper about the intersection of class, gender and race as simultaneous processes of identity creation and I use some examples from pop culture.. I know it sounds kinda weird but I think it turn out pretty good. Today I was at work pretty much all the day and Im so tired but I'm super proud because today me and another college from work, held a mini introductory training day for young leaders... I'm totally tired but this day was just so rewarding... This was my first time doing something like this... I have done similar stuff but still... I think my 15 year old self would be in total chock if she knew all the things she would be doing in the future... I was totally shy when I was growing up.. But it wasn't like that always .... Things started to go wrong when we (my family and I) started our journey here in Europe being the new black kid wasnt always as popular and so I started to get bullied so I just shut myself out... For yearssssss.... Im still struggling with my shyness/ being a loner attitude but it has improved. Going trough that has really taught me soo soo much... But anyways for those who are wondering I work part- time at the YMCA... 
Im so happy to be back blogging and I hope to keep it going... On today's look Im wearing this grey sweater that I got from H&M and this cute skirt that I got from  Persunmall... And yes Im still rocking my Litas, Im  never going to get tired of them =)...
