A Thought On: Why I Started ‘A Note On Sickle Cell’

I wanted to share,

When I wrote this blog I was of the mindset that I’m pausing my life to start this crusade and campaign for better health care. Then I slapped myself in the face and looked at it for real, this is me starting my life and really being the me who I’m supposed to be.

There are people out there who are afraid to even speak about our medical condition like is some dirty little secret or an embarrassment to where they will feel shame or ridicule even speaking about it.

For me I know I’m out here and this is me being me. I am for sure 100% myself and I can’t be anyway but authentic with it. This is the real Start. March 14 I started my life came out the closet and let people know the real me not the me they perceive me to be.

I document all the information I've gathered in my working and real life using reason and the written word to share with everyone how I ask an artist see the world. I research Plastics and Concrete and I'm educated in tech, design and art history. While having active practitioner experience in Advertising. I use that myriad of technical skills and display how they apply in the world and products we use starting with fashion.
