ॐ Powerful. Creative. Spiritual. Intimidating. Artistic. Loving. Passionate.

Born in Atlanta, raised around the world.

I spent the early portion of my childhood in the Bay Area (CA) and Ghana Accra (Africa). Then continued most of my childhood in Ithaca (NY).

I've been privileged enough to have traveled all around the world, participate in Environmental and Social Justice work, meet Amazing people and follow the journey of who I want to be.

My Blog features everything I find important, beautiful, and spiritual, while reflecting my artistic interests.

Peace, Sequoya.

Hââbre, the last generation
1. Ms. Djeneba : ” I used to like my scars; they were beautiful. We used to brag about them. But, now, in the city, it is definitely out of fashion.”
2. Mrs. Sinou : “I refuse to do it to my children. This will stay on my face only.”
3.Mr. Konabé : “Our parents did this not to get lost in life. When you went somewhere, you could not get lost.”
4. Mr. Lawal : “It is here in town that I am ‘nobody’. In the village, I am a noble; people bow down when they see my face! I am proud of that.”
5. Mr. Salbre : “ I do not want this for my children. We are the last generation “
6. Ms. Martine : “When I was 10 years, I asked for them. I wanted to be like my brothers and sisters, and to show that I am courageous. “ 
7. Mr. Guemi : “I already wear my identity card on my face. This is the reason why people did it : to recognize one another. But now, this is over. We can no more be recognized.”

If you’ve featured me, but didn’t credit the art, please make the effort, it’s only polite. ;)”  from his website

"The most beautiful and most profound emotion that we can experience is the sensation of the mystical."
Albert Einstein (via alteringminds)
"You make me feel beautiful not because you tell me, not because when you look at me it’s like you’re blessed. It’s by how you choose my presence over and again. By the way you ask me questions so you can just hear me express myself. By the way you said ‘you’re gifted, you don’t even have to try’."
"Thank you for seeing ME."

~why is this book telling me george washington is a hero when he raped, murdered, and tortured people like me to get paid?

~why is this book telling me abraham lincoln graciously freed the slaves when he just wanted to save the union and thought people like me were inferior?

Why is this book telling me Egypt is in the Middle East and not apart of Africa ?
