My parents were very active in the Civil Rights Movement. My father was a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) worker; my mother was a secretary with the Panthers.
Happiness is the bomb cosmetic! When I’m smiling, sometimes I’m giving thanks for all the things I have rather than worrying about the things I don’t.
I try to make my mood uplifting and peaceful, then watch the world around me reflect that mood.
We had already planned my wedding when my brother passed away in 2012. When you’re grieving, you don’t necessarily want to think about something like that, but my brother told me that he wanted me to, so we went ahead and did it.
