A Poem on Courage for @jubileecourageconference @jubileechurchlondon .
.

Courage conference moved meeeee! When challenged to write this piece, personally was afraid and didn't feel I was in the best head space to write something on this subject matter. Takes a lot to truly TRUST God is all that you do! .
.
The whole conference was amazing, just blessed I could be part of it. Can't wait for the next one.

Lil Ole me actually CLIMED UP A MOUNTAIN! 🙈
@livxxx & @ndeviranee said it would be a nice walk - Bruhhhhhh it WAS NOT, I really had to tackle my fears of height on this! Bus actually conquering this fear was amazing! I loved being one with nature, appreciating Gods creation and just loving LIFE. Getting on the ground I really love life!

Loved being part of the @theteenexperience and running #TheTextureTalks workshop with Melissa founder of @bighair - hearing young girs voice their experiences and topics around the texture was soo eye opening.

Got to perform The Crown as well, I've performed it sooo many places but this one honestly almost had me crying and I had to contain myself mid performances, I wrote it for young girls and looking at their faces whilst I recited it showed me times are changing - BUT we have to be the change we want to see.

Big Thank You too @jameliaisobsessed and @hairissimba for inviting me down ❤️❤️❤️ every moment of it!

If you are a teen or know any teens, sign them up to the last 2 workshops quick! Info @theteenexperience

"I pray, my child would not have to use her hair as a shield in that battlefield.
.
Her heritage surpasses those chains that contains poison,
.
She links to Kingdoms & Queendoms dressed in rubies & sapphires,
.
So she'll never have to wear the lies of a western disguise .
To be seen as a precious ruby in my eyes."
