Movement Monday!

I am proud to say that I am an established Afro-Latina writer, Therapist, Dancer, Artist, professional and so much more. However, I am frustrated with the ignorance of those who attempt to box me in.I feel as though I am too Black for the Latinos and too Latino for the Black culture. I am tired of being categorize as exotic and as a sex symbol. I made this video about breaking free from the limits that society tries to place on me.

I am Afro-Latina.

I am educated.

I am a Dancer.

I am an Artist.

I am a Therapist.

I am a sophisticated.

I am a woman.

I am a nurturer.

I AM BLACK AND I AM LATINA AND I AM PROUD!

Here is this week’s video!

expresSion

Today in our society, there is a stigma associated with expressing one’s thoughts and opinions. As an Art & Dance Movement Therapist, I firmly believe that I was created to help people express themselves freely using their spirit, soul, and body. I became an Art & Dance/Movement Therapist because they are the two forms of communication I use to express myself to others and with God. There are times that I am unable to verbalize what it is that I am feeling inside of me. Whether it be happiness, sorrow, joy, anger, etc. It is easier for me to show people with colors and movement the sensations taking over my body. I firmly believe that everyone in this world is gifted and talented! It’s a matter of accessing those skills/abilities and sharing your thoughts/opinions freely with the world. I hope that I have been able to inspire you to explore within yourself and have the courage to express yourself boldly!
