When I first started Movement Mondays it was out of the need for highlighting and uplifting other artists of Latino background because we don't often see them highlighted. I found recognizing other Latinos felt powerful and reminded me I was capable of following my dreams because they did. Then I branched out to artists of all backgrounds that we often didn't see in our pop culture. My warriors are incredible and they support me to no extent and now I am finding other incredible artists we can all go support. I found @oranicuhh
page and I watched all her videos and recently bought one of her paintings. At the age of 19, this Nigerian artist, born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama is doing some incredible work. When I asked her a few questions this is what she said:
Born and raised in montgomery, alabama.
My parents are both nigerian immigrants.
I identify with spoken word poetry and music the most, but I also paint.
I stand for equality of all people, body positivity and self-love. #love #selflove #equality
Her simple words make me melt, so simple and clear. Love it, love her and love this #egochallenge
she started and hope you all take a minute to check her out and support her work. We all need support on the journey of life. We can't do it alone. #MovementMondays
