Jumping for joy because my book #Sulwe will be on shelves in exactly two months! The power of children's books is how their value appreciates with time – we love them now and understand them later. I want #Sulwe to be a seed for children to grow and draw from in later years. No matter your age, it's never too late to love the skin you’re in and to see the beauty that radiates from within! Over the next few months, I will share stories of stars of all ages who shine like Sulwe with the hashtag #BrightnessIsJustWhoYouAre. Please join me and show me what light YOU shine!🌟Pre-order at the link in bio.
It was a joy to reunite with my college friends Thanu and Rage on their new podcast @BadBrownAunties. We discussed everything: growing up as the daughter of a politician, my outrageous winter wardrobe at Hampshire College, the hustle of getting my green card, who my aunties are and more. Listen at badbrownaunties.com/episodes – link is in my Story.
My first #Sulwe signing! This story is near and dear to my heart and it was wonderful to begin to share it today. The best children's books plant a seed for children to grow and draw from throughout their lives. If Sulwe does that for even one young reader, I would be delighted.✨ #BookExpoAmerica
Thank you @MTV for my Best Performance and Best Villain #UsMovie nominations, and for recognizing the film in the Best Movie category! I wonder which character the Villain nom is for... 🤷🏿♀️ Go to vote.mtv.com to vote - link in my bio. ✂️ #MTVAwards
They say we look alike. I would have to agree. And I am flattered that this beauty gets confused for me. But model @AdutAkech is in a class and path of her own. I feel a swell of pride and a rush of giddiness every time I see her strut down a runway or cover another powerful brand campaign or magazine. Adut, you are unstoppable and I am cheering on the sidelines for you! My #WomanCrushWednesday#AdutAkech. #Doppelganger#SpotTheDifferencesAndMemorizeThem
