In Remembrance

This post is in remembrance of my grandmother, Yamonmon, who passed away while visiting her home country in Haiti on Saturday April 5th, 2014. She was my inspiration in many ways, but most importantly she helped me contextualize my surroundings and develop my individuality by teaching me where I was from and providing an example of expression of creativity. See, my grandmother was first of all a seamstress–she made many of my earliest (and most memorable outfits), she taught me how to sew and how to cook. She taught me how to find value in my own individuality, knowing that there will always be others out in the world who want to outshine you. Competition shouldn’t faze you…there is only one you, and no one can compete with that. Thank you Yamonmon. I love you and will miss you more than you know.Image
