My Love Note: 


I have passion for recognizing where the boiling belly full of love is, 

You have the burnt remains of what used to hold everything beautiful,

You've been my cradle since birth, 

Somewhere that I can always call home, 

All space in your boiling belly for a black girl in need of home, 

Always leaving room for me even after all the struggles people stomp into your skin of soot. 

You are very much appreciated here. 

You are beautiful, 

Home too all the hurting brown boys wearing bullet proof skin, 

And the girls who can't find their way out of the maze in those boys minds, 

You've been my mother my entire life, 

Your street lights always my guide back to broken beauty,

You, 

West Philly always has room, 

Even with the over population of poverty, 

I try to save you with poetry, 

There is always room, 

You are nothing but a beautifully broken mother birthing boiling belly flu of love.

Crossing Boundaries Podcast

My project is about crossing boundaries. I interviewed my mother on this topic. When we talked it ended up being about how the past affects her, the differences between old school & new school, and the issues of people young and old. It was all about her insight, views, and experiences with things through her own eyes.

Crossing Boundaries Podcast

This is an interview between my aunt Adrienne and I, on how she overcame times in her life when people told her no, she turned right around and proved them wrong. She told them yes. This is about her having her biggest weakness thrown at her and taking it and "slaying the dragon". 
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

Crossing Boundaries: Pregnancy

This interview is about my mom and cousin talking about what happened when they got pregnant before they was married and how this could be crossing boundaries with their religion. We also had some deep emotion in this interview because not only did it effect their religious life but also their social life.

Crossing Boundaries Podcast

Racial prejudice is something that a lot of people have encountered throughout their lives. Each and every one of us are set to be equal and the same because we are one human race. We can't just judge others from what we see. This is a main issue that still exists in our society today. This podcast is about racial boundaries of my two middle school teachers and a friend of mine. They talked about their struggles and experiences dealing with race from their childhood until now.

Age is something that separates everyone therefore different age groups go through different experiences and struggles. Kids may seem to always be joyful and always happy but deep down inside, they feel restricted and they dislike so many things because of their age. This is the story of the life of my younger brother and all the things he went through. He talks about the complications he has and we do not have because of his age in general and also his age compared to his family.

Bullying has existed for many years but hasn't been as public as it has been for the past couple years. All of the social norms thrown together has built up an army of hatred. An army that will verbally, and physically hurt others.   This is a story about a young boy who dealt with bullying and overcame it.

Crossing boundaries in the classroom can be a very hard task to accomplish as a teacher. Developing your teaching style and still remaining as your own individual that you are accustomed to can be challenging for anyone. It's all about developing a relationship with your students.
