I always try to talk about what’s on my heart here, but I’ve been avoiding one topic that is so monumentally significant to me: diversity.⠀
⠀
I don’t just mean in wedding vendors and client types, but also how diversity moves the needle forward on so many things. ⠀
⠀
A lot of you are going to balk and say things like “I see diversity in this industry everywhere” and yes there has been a marked improvement. However, sometimes when I hear vendors talk about adding diverse images to their portfolio it is strictly for the sake of booking clients for monetary gain or for the sake of appearance. What is missing sometimes is the authenticity in the thought that diversity is a good thing for everyone (and why) and not just their pocketbooks.⠀
⠀
Whew. I said it.⠀
⠀
I’ve been thinking of ways to communicate what I mean on this more in a well thought our way and if I can get to it soon I hope to make share more of my thoughts in my stories over the next couple of weeks. ⠀
⠀
I’ve been holding back because I was afraid of alienating vendor friends and clients, but let’s be honest...anyone who isn’t down with the idea of a more diverse community and world probably wasn’t going to be hiring me anyway.⠀
⠀
Shared with love.⠀

The Syrian Cultural Garden, Cleveland Ohio in Rockefeller Park is the many gardens representing those cultures that call Northeast Ohio their home.  The Syrian Cultural Garden was dedicated in 2011. It contains elements from the different aspects of Syrian heritage such as the Arches of Palmyra, the Amphitheater of Basra and the Arabic Fountain. .
It also contains several of pedestals which outline Syrian history including the immigration to America. One contains "A Message to Young Americans of Syrian Origin" by Khalil Gibran, written in 1919. Here Gibran writes "I believe in you, and I believe in your destiny, I believe that you are contributors to this new civilization, I believe that you have inherited from your forefathers an ancient dream, a song, a prophecy, which you can proudly lay as a gift of gratitude upon the lap of America."
.
The first Syrian (Arab) immigrant is reported to come to Cleveland in 1895, with a large influx of Syrians in the 1920's.

Twenty years ago I met this man as my first year college roommate. That’s what college is about; coming out of your comfort zone and being friends with someone you might not have ever met, trying new things, or finding a better path. Thanks to Dr. Wojeski, or Chris as I call him, for letting me speak at his institution last week.  #trajectorychangers

Powerful, Irreverent and Royal.  That's how Rhonda Gordy described her hair as she supports her sister @traceeellisross new hair care line @patternbeauty.  Yass to that description of her hair. I totally think that's a perfect synopsis of black hair in its natural state.  Uniquely Beautiful.

Cleveland is here because of the hard work of those many people who immigrated from outside the United States. Cleveland has very large German, Italian, Irish, Hungarian and Slovenian populations and these are just a few of the peoples who have made Cleveland their home throughout our history.
.
Cleveland continues to be a diverse city. Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending and sponsoring Inter CLE by @global.cleveland in downtown. International students from the area's universities and colleges were in attendance. .
I met students from Albania, Venezuela, Guatemala, the Bahamas, Jordan, Tunisia, Japan, Uzbekistan and so many more! It was an amazing day! We gave away tickets for our walking tours. We congratulate Sajad who won them in our Cleveland trivia contest and @ecastromcl who won them in our Instagram drawing. .

It's ok to be white, black, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Hispanic, Latino, or any race! We were all created equal. We all bleed red and are apart of the unique human race! Don't feel guilty for being your race, you didn't choose to be that race. Learn to love yourself. You're not a slave owner for being white. You're not an inherently evil person for being white. You're not inferior because you're a person of color. Thank you @blackconservativemovement for this friendly reminder during times where racial tensions are unfortunately heightened. God bless you all, keep advocating for more black people to join #therightsideofhistory! ----------------------------------------------------
