This morning I watched videos of Misty Copeland with my daughter. She was in awe (as you should be!) and pointed out Misty’s brown hair which is like her own. This turned into an hour long self-reflection of how representation MEANS SOMETHING to kids and to those of us who grew up with few, if any, options.
So...I would love to hear about who, in your childhood, made you feel like part of the story and part of the conversation in a meaningful way.
