Welcome to my slice of life

I'm no longer accepting the things I cannot change...I'm changing the things I cannot accept. - Angela Davis

what this is about

kissmypassion (all lower-case) is a personal journey journal and lifestyle blog documenting the life and thoughts of yours truly. While inserting life lessons learned, a majority of my focus is on supporting and promoting Women of Color, communities of color, our businesses. This blog seeks to build a a community of women of color based located in Minneapolis, MN and beyond.

The core message behind kissmypassion is to spread the word to women of color that our narrative matters and that we don't always have to "roar" to be heard nor should we have to. We have the opportunity as pillars of our communities and households to disrupt the economy with our intellect, labor, dollars, and community influence.


an open letter  

Dear readers,

I have lived my life never quite fitting into the world's definition of what a woman of color should be, how she should act, look, think, or even feel. My life experiences have taught me that I am only allowed to be me; nothing more nothing less. I have watched those around me struggle with their identities within their family, the workplace, in education, in our communities, and within society. I know that struggle, very intimately and my journey has taught me that we don't survive alone, we have friends, mentors, and people in our lives that hold us accountable actions. We have higher expectations for ourselves and the people we choose to surround ourselves with.  

I have long since declared that my happiness isn't determined by anyone else, but me. By default, I've taken life by the reins and have made my voice heard and always stay accessorized to make sure I am seen. I have lived a lot of experience, learned a lot of lessons, and now I have a platform to share my knowledge. I welcome you on this never-ending journey and invite you to get information, love yourself, support our communities, and when the world forgets who they are dealing with, remind them loud and proud.

Muchos besos,
