Shaping our narrative. 
Always puzzled me how Nikki Parker chased and ended up with the lazy, arrogant, insecure, self centered player Stanley Oglivee. A man who called her fruitcake, a nut, psycho etc, publicity embarrassed her...
Kim was so dumb, T could only rap, womanize and wear bling, whiles Stevie, the blond white girl was rich and academically brilliant. 
Who on earth wrote that show? Tell better stories of your identity! #representationmatters #filmmakerdiaries #theparkers #shapeyourimage

@anaquirozsamayoa

I've been sick in bed all day. I was able to watch "I love Lucy". Growing up, my mom and I would watch the show for hours. As a kid, it's one of the only English-speaking shows I remember had a Latino in the cast. Its still one of the most innovative and hilarious shows. 27. 📺 . . . . . #taiwan #vida #sick #traveling #travel #travels #light #representationmatters #latinaswhotravel #viaje #solotravel  #fotodeldia #video #wanderer #love #photooftheday #sheisnotlost #countdown #expat #expatlife #nomad #life #explore #exploretheworld #experience #life #abroad #travellife #videooftheday #boss

February 16, 2019. On this day of #BlackHistoryMonth aka #AfroLatinoHistoryMonth, I present the #awardwinning #journalist @soledadobrien who who is widely known for her thought-provoking documentaries on @cnn, #LatinoInAmerica and #BlackInAmerica. Being a child of an #interracial #union, her mom #AfroCuban and her father #Irish/#Scottish from #Australia, Soledad’s work directly reflects and reports her experience as a #brown, #black and #biracial #American and citizen of this world. This @harvard graduate was quoted saying, “It's hard to be the lone ethnic face in the room. People look to me to explain a community that is diverse and ever-changing, a community with which sometimes I don't have a great deal in common. There is so little in-depth reporting on people of color that I set the bar high for myself and the people around me. I see the job I have now as my opportunity to get good reporting about black and brown people on TV, as a chance to bring people together, and to tell a fair and accurate story of communities of color, not just rehash stereotypes for the sake of drama.” #representationmatters #visibility #afrolatino #afrocuban #afrolatinx #journalism

#fiberuarychallenge DAY 16: Knit PJ Party! Complete with sneaky cat! 😼😻 I hope everyone is enjoying a cozy morning of knitting. I'm starting mine with a shawl, butterbeer tea, and the stunning new issue of @laine_magazine . ☕ I also wanted to say a huge thank you for the love around yesterday's post -- I'm amazed! I made some serious decisions yesterday that were incredibly difficult and stressful, so the love was very reassuring and perfect timing. 💕

It’s a puzzles in pajamas kind of afternoon. 🧩 Other than books, puzzles are probably my kiddos’ favorite closed-ended material. I love them for helping my children develop a habit of concentration. Thank you @puzzlehuddle for creating these beautiful, durable, and engaging puzzles! ♥️
