Your deep, dark skin is luminating.
your course hair is rhythmic.
every accentuating muscle on your body is poetic.
your strength is nourishing. .
you are royal.
you are beautiful.

#socialconditioning does far more than mold our interpretation of life around us, it also molds our perception of "self". as a woman who has always stood with self confidence in one way or the other, i struggled trying to find the connection between being an elite female athlete and owning beauty. now i understand i can have both 🙂

My approach to life:
1. set a goal
2. stare it in the face (hardest part)
3. believe! (2nd hardest part)
