I was asked by Scotta Intimates owner, Shaneia Caldwell, to participate in a Street Style Blogger Competition along side Colours By Numbrs, Kori and StyleMile, Bruna (pictured above). Although, I didn’t win I had a blast.

I had to prepare my fierce face and walk before the competition started.

I was very naive about the world since I hadn’t had a conventional upbringing in the public school system. I was homeschooled, and I had no idea that girls could be so mean. I used to think ‘ALL’ girls were evil. I was a smaller fat back then but I never dressed trendy, which was always an issue. They’d talk about how weird my black nail polish was or why I wore glitter on my eyes. Big girls just wanted attention they said. When I got into the workplace, it got worse. Because I’ve always had a strong presence without even speaking, women seemed to take that as a threat. That by my mere existence I was threatening. Fast forward, I’m not even gonna go into where a lot of these folks are... It’s Ramadan and I’m not gonna spill the tea. Okurrrrrr. But, all this to say one women’s gain isn’t your loss. Someone’s self confidence isn’t an attack on you. I’m sooo glad that I got rid of individuals who side-eyed my accomplishments. Told me ‘you changed’. Or, always had something negative to say about ideas I had. Clear 👏🏾 your 👏🏾 space 👏🏾 Girls and women. Smile at your fellow girl in passing. Tell her her lippie is amazing. That her skin is flawless. That her hijab is on point. That her presentation is strong. Have you had frenemies before? Why don’t more women congratulate one another instead of taking your accomplishment as an attack? Let’s spill the teaaaaaa!
