Thank you to my sister @smoonzilla and my dear friend @theultimatehomegirl for tagging me…. We are BLACK WOMEN!…. We build …. we don’t tear down other BLACK WOMEN! …. We have felt the pain of being torn down and we have decided we will be deliberate about building others! If I didn’t tag you please don’t be offended. I tried to pick people who I thought would do this challenge!! All too often, we women find it easier to criticize each other, instead of building each other up. With all the negativity that’s going around let’s do something positive!! Upload only 1 picture of yourself… ONLY you. Tag as many sisters to do the same. Let’s build ourselves up, instead of tearing ourselves down. 💪🏾
