    Thank you so much Lauren, I may or may not have shed a tear at your response! For the longest time I found it difficult to use my voice, even to this day I struggle with it. So thank you for providing a platform for those trying to use their new found voices <3

    • I love how you said that family is only blood. That’s a great mindset for your future child to have. Especially when sometimes your own family may not be around at certain points of your life. I know you’re gonna be involved in your child’s life and make him realize his future goals and dreams on his own. A lot of families push their child…read more

  • Wow, you are truly a strong person and I’m so sorry you had to be. You should be very proud of yourself for being a representative for both you and your son, its by far no easy task. Thank you for sharing your beautiful story!

  • Thank you so much Denise, your comment made my day!! I agree completely; our generation spent most of our lives trying to live up to the expectations of not only the media, but the generations before us. We all need to take the time to heal, and connect with each other, and hopefully continue to have the courage to share our stories, however…read more

  • Representation: From Generation to Generation

    Representation; it’s a word I only truly learned about in the last 5 or so years…and I still have a lot to learn about. You see, growing up I loved movies, books, television shows; basically any escape from real life was my jam. Luckily, there were a lot of shows, celebrities and characters in stories that I, as a blue eyed white girl…read more

    • Oh man this was such a good read. Your first paragraph was so raw! & it was relatable. I wish our generation had an easier time healing but it’s wonderful that people have the courage to share their stories. Someone, somewhere will read that now & relate & not feel so alone anymore.

    • Your message is so true. There is it is much representation as there should be now these days. There might have been a development, but I feel like there should be more. It kind of sucks especially with the society that we live in that there are not as many people being represented on television as they should be, and even if they were represented…read more

  • Dear Legacy,

    Where to even begin; there is so much I want to tell you. The first thing I need to tell you is that I, despite what I’ve told you or made you believe, have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve been skirting by on a wing and a prayer pretty much my entire life….and luckily its gotten me here. In life everyone makes it seem like they know all the…read more

    • @abeaton Amanda, I love this idea of trusting your own voice and carving your own path. I think helping people realize their dreams instead of telling them what to dream is what it’s all about. And while it seems like everyone else has life all figured out, you are right. No one does. So follow your heart, trust voice, and always stay true to who…read more
