After watching Lion King, which I thought a better job could have been done, I came across a challenge that Beyonce has started: #BrownSkinGirlChallenge and in a slight way reminded me of my next video I am releasing, which is all about building my confidence.
In speaking for myself and not over generalizing, it took years for me to build self confidence. From the names I was called by other students and the feeling of being the odd man left out, I began to believe those negative feelings others had towards me.
But, luckily it also pushed me to be better and work hard even when I felt like I had run out of gas and my black girl magic was on empty.
In fact, I never knew of that term until a few years when it was said on BET. I was busy trying to be like others to be accepted when I was younger when really you will never get accepted whether you conform or not, so why not – just be you?
Well, I am me. I can’t act any more black or less than I truly can. I love who I am because if we were all the same – we’d all race to find something different. So I opt to be that. Different, which helps fuel my individualism and passion for creativity.
So it’s not just a #brownskingirlchallenge it’s a #justbeyouchallenge
Be on the lookout for my next video later end of this week!
