Sf Bay Area

Born in 1991, raised in Richmond, CA, I would often question the inner city's drug, prostitution, homelessness, and violence rate. I became numb to society's poor conditions of degrading women, in which I did not know the importance of womanhood, morals, or values. This may have stemmed down from my hard-working mother, who worked so hard, that all of her attention was respectively devoted to work and school, but, was needed to pay attention to her four daughters, who lacked the essence of sisterhood, communication, social interaction, and most importantly, confidence. I designd the S&L becuase I am a minority, a black woman who once lacked these things, yet still worry about the community I come from, the place I am proud to be from, yet scared of. The S&L is designated for expressions and stories coming from myself, and others like me. I am here to express, and just want people to listen appreciate, and together we can explore eachother's untapped talents, and promote change in society.Welcome to the beginning of my vision, the S&L, a blunt reality; where visionns of truth speak out, and a place where social justice, fun, and pop culture meets.
