I took a brief hiatus in the wake of the recent protests against court rulings in favor of Darren Wilson (police officer who shot and killed unarmed Michael Brown) and Daniel Pantaleo (police officer who choked and suffocated unarmed Eric Garner). Honestly, it had been very hard to write about my personal interests when Black and Brown communities have much bigger issues to tackle – life or death issues. Until now, any topic that didn’t shed light on racial disparities seemed too trivial to highlight. But, I have since realized that these are the times when every person has the responsibility to work even harder to share a positive, uplifting word. Whatever your gift is to the world, this is the time to share it. These last few weeks have helped me refocus my purpose in the lives of others and has motivated me to keep going. There are so many odds stacked against minorities that we need twice as much reassurance that we deserve to experience lives that are just as fruitful as even the most privileged.
While I do tend to share more information about careers and personal goals, overall, Sucsass is about not taking “no” for an answer. It is about defining and demanding only the best possible treatment. This blog is about taking what is owed to you and not feeling any regret. Sucsass is back and here to stay!
