I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Roald Dahl (via futurepharaohs)

Do you know what ” woman of color” means? It is ALL woman of color. African-american, Latino, mixed, Indian, we must all support each other…in america they look at us all the same. We are all stereotyped and discriminated against. We must empower our own communities and our children to understand that it will be up to us to secure our futures…fist raised..#mpr1m3
