A Speech To Black and Brown Children

In today's generation of education, it's not often to see teachers stick around for longer than 3 years. Either they move on to leadership positions or teaching was just a filler for the moment. This is unfortunate because it doesn't give students the consistency that they need. I had the opportunity to spend 3 of... Continue Reading →

In all your ways acknowledge himโ€ - Proverbs 3:5-6 Two years ago, today, March 29, 2017, I received the worst phone call of my life. The call letting me know that my mom unexpectedly passed away. The one who brought... Continue Reading →

My name is Simone. Some call me Mone, Moni, Simi, sis, bestie, the list goes on but my favorite name of them all is Mommy. It was October 2014 that I found out I was preggo. That was the scariest day of my life. I picked up the test, saw the 2 very bold lines... Continue Reading →

Although Iโ€™m approaching the big 3-0 this year, Iโ€™m in a space where I feel like Iโ€™m figuring out a new life. For those who have lost a mom, Iโ€™m sure you understand what I mean. At first, I was a bit surprised to be asked to be involved in HERstory series because here I... Continue Reading →

I was born in Manhattan but moved back and forth between Harlem and the Bronx until I turned 11 years old; when my family and I finally settled in East Harlem.

Company: Laces By Co Owner: CoCo  So, Iโ€™ve hesitated on writing my story for months. Not because I didnโ€™t want to share, but more so what I wanted to share. Should I be completely transparent, or should I just give the people 50% because I donโ€™t want anyone judging me? I also hesitated because I... Continue Reading →

Iโ€™m changing, stretching, growing, expanding, developingโ€ฆand this โ€œishโ€ ainโ€™t easy. Maturing is not a game.  Once I turned the Big 4-0 (8-years ago), I decided that things needed to change.  I couldnโ€™t keep doing the same things the same way expecting a different result - isnโ€™t that called โ€œinsanityโ€?  Well, the way my one last nerve is set...

Up until 2016, I never knew why I couldnโ€™t remember most of my childhood. My sister would always want to reminisce on things we had done, but I could never bond with her because I wouldnโ€™t be able to recall the time she was speaking on.
