Doubt, fear, listening to outside noise etc.. all have a way of making you feel less than. Esp in a field, where you're already an anomaly. Learned a valuable lesson this week. Hard work, smart work pays off. And if you're truly passionate about your work, ALWAYS bet on yourself. After my boss repeatedly told me my work wasn't good enough to win a research poster competition that I was a part of on Wednesday at UPenn.. I slowly started believing it. However, I still woke up, slayed my outfit (lol) and went to the competition to slay my presentation! And your favorite brown scientist won first place! Ahh! 🙌🏾Moral of the story: bet on yourself, and don't let anyone allow you to doubt your dopeness💃🏾

Ra'chel is a Haitian/American recording artist. She has been battling weightloss for a while now and have been denied record deals/music opportunities because of it. She didn't allow this to let her quit; but instead used it as motivation to better herself. She is almost down by 100 lbs, naturally!! 🙌🏾 she did it through diet (watching her caloric intake) and exercising two times a day; which included 6-15 miles. Sje had to fall out of love with food and fell in love with her! She had to learn that she was priority and that she was worth fighting for. This has definitely been a challenge, but it is definitely worth it! It has taught her that she can do whatever she put mind to. 🙇🏾♀️💕💪🏾 she just want to inspire someone 🙇🏾♀️
