I made this video forever ago, but I feel like it really applies after the amazing weekend I’ve had with the SPARK ladies. I’m feeling so inspired and empowered to create and make change because it’s our right to do so.
I’m so grateful to have had amazing teachers such as Dana Edell, Dana Hernandez, Shelby Knox, Jamia Wilson, Elisa Kreisinger, Renee Watson, Rebecca Mushtare, Courtney E. Martin, Deanna Zandt, and Jaclyn Friedman. Please look up everyone of these women; they have done and are doing fucking amazing things that NEED to be shared. And you best believe I’ll share them with you.
I’ll hopefully do an extensive post on everything later, but I need to write about it in my (paper) journal :-) And to loosely quote Stephanie, “We debunk girl hate when we get into spaces with each other because immediately we have an instant connection”
I feel like I’ve known these women for years. And even though it was only 3 days, I know that I’ll know and be with them for the rest of my life. This experience will forever stay with me and has been life changing.
Love you SPARKteam. <3
