As #Thanksgiving approaches, I find myself thinking about all that I've been #blessed with but have to give a special shout out to these folks. All of you have had my back unconditionally, picked me up when I was at my lowest, helped me find my sanity, and supported me no matter what. Thank you for being some of my favorite people and making this adventure more than worth it. ❤💕💙 #bestfriendgoals#Friendsgiving#mypeople#napcrew

So last years Christmas card we included the goats... the question is should we keep them again for this years card?! Any guesses what theme we are going for 😎 Also where is everyone getting cards printed??
One last smoky sunset over Cortes Bank to end leg 6 of CalCurCEAS. There's one more leg but I'm not going; my field work is done for the year. Next stop: home! To say I'm excited to see @tessgolling and #jackthefluff is an understatement.
Попробуйте не сопротивляться изменениям, которые приходят в вашу жизнь. Вместо этого, пусть жизнь живёт через вас. И не волнуйтесь, что она переворачивается вверх дном. Откуда вы знаете, что жизнь, к которой вы привыкли лучше, чем та, которая настанет? #mypeople#love#ставрополь#stavlife#мысливслух💭

I know it’s long please read in it’s entirety. As I reflect back on my journey that led me to this point in life. I am so thankful to God who has loved me, when I didn’t love myself. Protected me when I thought I needed a gun or knife to keep myself safe.
I was directed by God when I was so lost in the streets and jail codes. I remember sitting in Albany County jail thinking to myself, I am 19 years old and in jail for the first time in my life and I am being charged as an accomplice in a Capitol Murder case. My world was upside down. I couldn’t mentally focus, I couldn’t sleep and I couldn’t eat. All I could do was pray. 🙏🏾 Especially when two years later the Federal Bureau Of Prisons reached out to my lawyer and said they are coming to get me and extradited me to Virginia to face armed bank robbery charges. Which I later plead guilty and received a 90 months sentence. I got sent back to Albany and plead guilty to 9-18 years concurrent to my federal time.
My story is not unique, their are countless women and men who have experienced the same thing in our legal system. I want you to remember one thing about me if you don’t remember anything else. Where I am at today does not show you my journey, struggles, failures and bad decision making. I use to dream about traveling and speaking to people who looked like me and to others who did not look like me.
I personally believe if we want the fundamental change in any of these systems of oppression. We need folks who don’t look like us to advocate just as hard for us as we do, if not harder.
I hope you read this and hear my heart. I am not where I need to be but, I am not who I use to be.
This is why I fight for the countless women and men impacted by our criminal injustice system!!! #fallen#chastised#forgotten#risen#blessed#humbled#workinprogress#mypeople#incarcerated#story#powerful#endmassincarcertion#leader#endsolitaryconfinement
