No matter where I go I’m always reppin Brooklyn!! With Jay-Z lines after everything I say. “I’m a Brooklyn Boy I may take some gettin’ used to.” 🙌🏾 Just like that! Lol Specifically Brownsville! The lessons I learned in Brownsville are invaluable and I take them everywhere I go! Most people don’t know but I was expelled from middle school, I got suspended from school almost all the time. I even got suspended on the days I wasn’t in school! Like How Sway?! However my first teaching job was teaching middle school students in Brownsville. So I learned your past doesn’t determine your future it makes way for you. And thats why I don’t believe In consequences, detention, suspension and a no nonsense approach to academics, behavior or reform as a solution. From a Student, Teacher, Dean, Advisor, Diversity Coach, Teacher Coach, Basketball Coach, Leadership perspective, It does not work! When I’m in front of a class, or speaking to a student I use culturally relevant practices to drive teaching and learning! Your first step as an educator is to build relationships and community with and among the youth. How?! Go take your Students to go see #BlacKkKlansmen then use that to drive the content/discussions. In the end it will make all the difference! #ReflectionsofABlackMaleTeacher#brownsvilleneverranneverwill 📷 by @kulinda_moyo
I am thrilled with my progress after just six weeks on #thesixpackrevolution ! My skin and energy are much better, I am a lot stronger and a big bonus as a stay at home mum is that I have done all the exercises from home - no gym required!

Possessing little self-regard can lead people to become depressed, to fall short of their potential, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love, on the other hand, results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failures.⠀
Today was such a good day in Standing Rock at the Tribal Education Summit hosted by @jrwbta! I channeled Aretha and Honey and @alexalmore and @theresealmore all day. I love our corps members so much, and I am so, so grateful to reconnect with folks who have deeply shaped my story. #selfdetermination#rocksteady
Today is the 1 year anniversary since the West Papuan People's petition was secretly carried out of West Papua and posted to our office in the UK. 1.8 million West Papuan people (70% of the indigenous population) signed the petition by hand to reject the Act of free Choice. They called on the United Nations to execute the internationally supervised on independence they were promised, to put West Papua back on the de-colonisation list, and to put an end to the gross human rights abuses being committed by the Indonesian government on a daily basis for over 55 years.
West Papua never got their vote in 1969 and the United Nations failed in their dirty to ensure the Act of free Choice was a fair and open process. At the time only 1026 people voted for Indonesia under the threat of violence. Back in 1969 over 800,000 Papuans were disenfranchised from exercising their right to vote. The West Papuan People's petition was the first time in history Papuans were able to create tangible proof of their ongoing desire to be free from Indonesian occupation. .
