This blog of sorts began as a young black queer woman theater artist’s way of making sense of the world. This exploration turned into a self love journey and here I am. Originally a New Yorker,  I am currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. In addition to my own personal artistry decorating this blog space, I am the Artistic Director of Speak Theater Productions.  Make sure to follow me on Instagram @blackgirlhope for more!
