Gender Acceptance

     With Bruce Jenner coming out as Caitlyn Jenner, gender has become a big subject.   Apparently it is not as simple as male and female.  There is an identification process that a person must go through and this process is how you project yourself to the world.  Even though you have the anatomy of a particular sex you can identify with the opposite sex.  It seems that this is becoming a way of expressing one's self that is being accepted by the world.
     Sexuality is linked to identity but not exclusive in determining ones sexual preference.  It seems that humans are a complex organism that is constantly learning about itself.  Acceptance is key here since all human beings are linked on this planet and by the societies in which they live.  The one common denominator is that we are of the human species but each human is an individual that should be accepted as a part of the whole of the human race with all its complexities.

Beauty Starts within

I have always believed that beauty starts within and I'm not speaking philosophically I'm speaking about what you put in your body.  Being a hairstylist I have always told my clients to eat for the health of their hair.  Now, I want to take it a step further by growing what you eat.  One of my tips that I tell my customers is if you need moisture in your hair you must put it in your body.  One of the foods that I recommend for this is the avocado.  So, I have decided to conduct my own experience of growing an avocado indoors.  I will chronicle with pictures the entire experience.  It is my belief that when you grow what you eat you are more in control of what you put in your body.

Farewell to an Era

I said, "Goodbye" to Barbara Walters her last week on the T.V. show The View.  It was an honor to have the opportunity to work with her and it was very important to me to be able to say goodbye.  I will always be grateful for the opportunity that I had working with one of Journalisms pioneers.  This experience lead me to City College where I am a student majoring in Philosophy and minoring in English.  This picture with Barbara reminds me of where I have been and where I am going and to keep working toward my goals.

Thank you, Barbara for the inspiration!!!
