"When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside." - (via gettingahealthybody)

"You work so hard, just to end up at home crying yourself to sleep; remember you’re trying, you are moving mountains that have plagued you since you were young, and you’re trying so hard. Keep fighting, fight until you have won. Fight until you have found your way home, until the sun comes back and your heart learns to love the mornings again." - T.B. LaBerge // Go Now

i think it is important to have narratives and artworks that are dear to you that you feel that you can relate to. it is really kind of lonely not seeing yourself anywhere, in popular media, in avant-garde work, in anything really. i have collected the very, very few examples i have seen of female characters and portrayal of female inner experience that i can relate to and kept them close to me in my mind and revisit them a lot

When I was a student, all that was told to me was how much my cultura didn’t matter. How important European art and standards are, and how totally dominant their aesthetic should be. All I wanted to do was tell my story. And I looked nothing like what is considered relevant or beautiful or important by society’s ideals. But I JUST.KEPT.GOING. Here are some of my pieces. I’m here to uplift and change who is in the spotlight. Powerful womyn of color. My indigenous sisters.
