“Rockin’ The Hoodie”

Got an email from Idakoos wanting to send me a customized hoodie. I am in love with hoodies. So warm and snuggly. And it being customized was even better.

It took me a long time to come up with something to put on the front. I’m a writer. This should be easy for me, right? There was so many things I wanted to say, but I wanted the hoodie to reflect who I am to the person whose reading it.

Since hashtags are trendy, I stared with those.

#Curvy

#Black

#Hijabi

Killen’ The Game.

I chose these words because they are who I am. And frankly, I am a quite unapologetic about each one. I’m curvy, so there is a stigma that I’m lazy or unhealthy. I am Black, so I am ghetto or poor. I am Muslim, so I am oppressed or a terrorist. I can be all of those words and be none of the stigmas attached. So I put the last phrase on there to solidify it all. I kill the game, which means I am confident in my abilities to go above and beyond. So boom!

The Idakoos sweater was easy to create and shipped pretty fast. The material is heavy duty and the inside is warm and soft. You have the option to buy one or 100+ Definitely check them out.

20150530_211910Superhero swag anyone?

20150530_223847Sheer outer-space. Love the shoulder detail. 20150530_230536I thought this was simple and chic.

20150530_230612Floral is all this season. And the pop of color on this really brings it all together.

After a long day of shooting and having my period start, I finally made it to Columbia University. Our panel starts in an hour. I’m scared af. As I always get super, deathly nervous before a speaking engagement. 
How do you get over your fears? I need tips ASAP because I’m trying to be a baddie like I am in this pic yesterday at @nylonmag 🤸🏾‍♀️
