i am honored to be the visionary and servant leader for the body: a home for love. it has been an illuminating process curating this space for black women, like me, who have been historically erased out of conversations that address the problematic norms of sexualizing young black girls + faulting survivors for their abuse. the body: a home for love is essentially the space i wish my younger self could have experienced.

“i am honored to work for the body: a home for love because it provides a desperately needed support system for black sexual assault survivors that currently does not exist. the way “the body” utilizes visual storytelling to center healing is unparalleled. it’s a privilege to be a part of something so special and powerful!”

“I am honored to be apart of the body a home for love because of the magnitude of healing it continues to cultivate. The body creates a home for us where one does not exist. Working for the body fills my soul immensely by allowing me to be a servant and inspiring the same healing in my own journey. With this beautiful team of black women and the community we serve I am granted the permission to go deep within. To me that is the most magical part of working for the body a home for love.”

“i am honored to work for the body a home for love because of its powerful emphasis on healing, flipping the narrative of sexual assault from victimhood to wellness, self-love, and self-care; all the while placing black women at the foreground and cultivating a space where their unique experiences are taken into consideration and their voices are amplified.”

“I am honored to work for the body: a home for love because I believe in giving a voice to black women + creating healing spaces for us. We do not always get the privilege to feel comfortable + loved + I believe that that is the space the body creates. So, I am more than happy + very blessed to be apart of that space + change in any way that I can.”
