From One Day to Day One.

Cancun, MX
“It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.”
- James Baldwin

May 1, 2021 is a date I’ll always remember fondly, because that’s the day we embarked upon our Blaxit journey.

As our plane descended into Cancun’s airport my eyes welled, and before I knew it tears were falling down my cheeks and flowing into my KN95 mask.

I looked out of the window and breathed a sigh of relief.

The joy I felt was unspeakable in that moment because I was experiencing one of the most major manifestations of my life, and I recognized that everything we went through led us to this moment.
