It’s been a while…..
In 30 days, I’ll celebrate my 30th birthday. While some dread transitioning into the 3rd decade of life, I welcome it! 🎊 I largely owe my excitement for 30 and this next decade to the intention by which I lived my 20s—a decade purposed for understanding and exploration. Weathering the mess and madness of understanding who you are not releases you into the unapologetic exploration of who you are. Year 29 has served as the perfect culminating end to what I’ve deemed “The Roaring 20s”.
A few days ago, as my significant other and I discussed legacy and what we’d like our 30s to mean, I shared that one of my goals, amongst many others, is to make someone’s 40 under 40 list….for significant contributions to the field of Human Rights. Do I know what that looks like as of today? Somewhat. Are things aligning in a way that move me closer to the desire to effectively answer problems in that realm? YES.
Although this year has been silent on the travel front (I knew it would be), it’s been filled with monumental movements that are relevant to my contribution to the world in this next decade. Here are three of several things I’ve been up to:
🎬 Transitioning into Cinematography and Executive Producing
⚖ Immigration Rights (No one deserves to be detained in chicken wire…more on that later)
🌎 Human Rights Advocacy and Awareness (Capitol Hill, here I come!)
What have you been up to? Tell me! And remember, how you live matters. How you leave people, a space, time, or decade also matters. Always. Happy Thursday!
