Hello and Happy August!
Last week I had the pleasure of discussing my project with Natasha Hatendi, assistant photo editor at Essence.com. She reached out to me because they were working on a feature celebrating Afro-Brazilian women and asked to use my work as part of that feature. I was thrilled and very interested in having my work displayed on their website. Although the images were not taken by me, each participant submitted them and were included in the magazine. This has been such a humbling experience thus far and I'm very grateful to be recognized by them! I am currently working on expanding the first edition of the magazine by adding more stories, interviews, articles, featured artists, and more.

As always... thank you for your support!
