Swipe — closing @willienorrisworkshop last night - my first runway & first time closing a show. i’m honestly speechless for so many reasons... if you know me you know that willie norris is a deeply special and present person in my life both professionally and personally. he has endless heart, talent and grit. he is real as fuck. i love him with my whole heart. couldn’t be happier to have done this with him. my hands were shaking and my heart was beating out of my chest. i hope that my first show goes to show that runways and fashion collections with people like me in it can be possible and there should be more things and opportunities like this everywhere within the fashion industry/world. thank you. ❤️ @elitenyc @richiekeo 💖💖

I’ve been sort of thinking about how vulnerable it is to be visible in the world we live in right now being someone like myself, but also the fact that so many people just fail to comprehend the simplicity of my being. the sort of price i have to pay with wanting nothing more but to objectively be as i am- that currently being & simply being a teenage girl from the bronx with a job who works for the things i want and publicly advocates on behalf of what is wrong and right within the parts of the world that actively concerns me. i’ve been so emotional lately- for myself, my loved ones, my family, for the world. i have been so happy. so very happy... i’ve been so shocked, so determined, so focused... so surprised... i’ve also been so sad, so devastated, so heartbroken, so angry, so intolerant, so indifferent, so jaded and so so so confused at the state of the world, humanity and towards the level of open bigotry, violence & oppression fed to us both irl and url on a day to day basis. i have no desire to be misunderstood, or used as an image for people to display and show their “wokeness” because they support me that conditionally where they’ll use a two year old picture reference of me to show that they “stan” or “support” someone trans in blue eyeliner, a gucci gown and a bleach blonde afro who didn’t pass as who they wanted to be bc they weren’t comfortable enough with themselves at the time to do so. i don’t want to be a token i don’t want to be the face of transness or disability, i am not ‘gender fluid’ i am not the ‘trans model’ i am not the ‘disabled model’ i am not the ‘trans, disabled model’... i am a black girl in a wheelchair. i want normalcy. xx 💖 untouched by my sweet @lukegilford for @sephora❣️makeup by @gracegraceahn, styled by @kyleluu/@slimybutts, hair by @lucas.a.wilson, nails by @merricures 🧚🏾‍♀️ @elitenyc @richiekeo ❤️
