Can I be more like her?
Can I walk into a room and capture everyone’s attention?
Can I fearlessly look at the world and tell it I’m not afraid like she does?
Can I speak with my voice and be heard?
Just like her,
That girl that sits in the back of my mind waiting for her release from this prison.
That girl that is unfiltered, loud and unafraid.
That girl who throws her heart on her sleeve even though she knows it might break.
She is not just the crack in the glass ceiling, she is the entire force that breaks it.
She is everything I would like to be and more.
The girl I dream to be.
This is the first part of a three part series entitled THAT GIRL. It is a collection of stories from different perspectives of a lady’s transitions through different phases of her journey to finding herself.
I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Remember to always tell the story of your scar
Love Tessie ❤️
