About me and this blog.
“Before you can fight for the freedom of others, you must first free yourself”Self quote
I am a powerful black woman. I am an important part of this world. My voice is here to be heard. My words are valuable. I am here to help others to also understand their worth and potential. I am here to drive unity. Together we will bridge the inequality gap and the change will be honest and sustainable.
Everyday I repeat these affirmations. The word affirmation comes from the Latin word affirmare, originally meaning “to make steady, strengthen“. The more we repeat our affirmations, the more they manifest into reality. My name is Dionne and I have created this blog to give myself a platform to share my thoughts and experiences to bring people together. There is so many things that drive us apart, but there’s more that brings us together.
Some of the content will be uncomfortable to read, and some of us will need to recognise our privileges, however uniting people in an equal world will see a benefit for all, especially future generations. They’ll be humour and goodwill throughout as well as love and laughter on this journey! We are faithfully in this together. Yes, you are receiving the message from a black woman, but there is something for every person in all of my content.
You can expect to read, watch and listen about many topics including:
- Working on your mind, body and soul
- Racism and its impact in the modern day
- Invigorating the real black history
- Inspiring the next generation of pioneers and leaders
- Encouraging black woman to reach their full potential
- Creating a more united and inclusive society
This blog is part of a bigger project by my organisation Change Makers so expect to also see additional content from a variety of sources and guest contributors.
I’m so grateful for those choosing to engage with my content and hope that you can take something valuable away.
Sending light and love always.
