Really good #theatre has the power to make you temporarily forget that which is causing you personal strife, while still grounding you with the awareness of the past and present day strife the performance evokes. It is like a horoscope, mirroring the events of the day without explicit reference. The viewpointing in this show was magnificent. I really feel this way, even aware that I have zero credibility to assess theatre, and that I sound like Niles Crane. #thearts #education #buildbridgesnotwalls

One of the greatest things I learned in my #hairstyling career is helping #women be kinder to themselves and others. Rather than perpetuate the image of #cosmetology as a modern temple of gossip, cheap talk, and disempowerment of others, I choose instead to uplift women and remind them of their worth. I am a partially #bald #businesswoman who has struggled with #alopecia most of my life, and it's from that experience that I learned the value of women, our truest human resources.⠀
⠀
I write about the impact of #gossip, #bullying, and the impact of a lack of #compassion in my #book Finding Our She-Compass. Get your copy via the #linkinbio and prepare to be galvanized. ⠀

 I believe in the importance of women having a #safespace to #connect and #empower each other. DM me if you are a woman in the #nonprofit or #dermatology sector. Let's connect and #buildbridges. ⠀

Happy Mother’s Day! I would like to dedicate this story to all the mothers around the world who fight to keep their children safe. A special thanks goes to my mother, Caterina, for her strength, determination and caring for others as a Pediatrician in a way that has no limits. Her example leads my way everyday. And, of course, thank you Maria for trusting me into your home and allowing me to take intimate images of your family as they adjust to a life in the U.S. and also for letting me be part of your journey since that very first day back in November when I met you on the road from Mexicali to Tijuana, Mexico tired and hungry from months of walking! You are truly an exceptional woman and mother; I am lucky to know you!
Finally, thank you @time and @karamilstein for the thorough edit and believing in my vision and my work and allowing it to be shared with the world. ••• “I do not want to go back to Honduras to be hungry all day long,” said Jeimy Giselle Meija Meza, 13, on March 11, 2018. “First of all, I want to study; I want to be an immigration lawyer to help fight for my people. 
For the past four months Maria Lidia Meza Castro, 40, and her children have been living in a house in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. while her attorneys are gathering all the documentation necessary for her asylum plea after she was granted entrance in the U.S. on December 18, 2019 at the Otay Mesa port of entry with the help of non profit Families Belong Together, Democratic Congressman Jimmy Gonzalez and Congresswoman Nanette D. Barragán. Castro is from San Pedro Sula, Honduras. She is a mother of nine, five of whom she brought on the long, arduous journey to the U.S. as one of the 5,000 plus Central American migrants traveling with the caravan in October 2018. Castro fled because her 13-year-old daughter had started to be threatened by the Maras, the local Mafia, who wanted her to sell drugs and start engaging in prostitution.

Simple pieces for a simple day! Every girls gotta have her favorite, simple jewelry she can throw on and go! 🚦

vom Cofounder @lorenzo_marsili_ von @european_alternatives
 gewesen.

Gerade angesichts solcher Enthüllungen wie die des #strachevideos
heute Abend, wir brauchen endlich diese progressiven Bündnisse und dürfen unsere Kraft nicht nur für diese Abwehrkämpfe nutzen.Wir dürfen nicht warten bis die Geschichte den Rückwärtsgang einlegt sondern sie vorantreiben indem wir Programme entwickeln, wie etwa einen global green new deal, die deutlich machn warum wir transnational agieren müssen.

Und aufdecken wie sich der #Neoliberalismus vom #Nationalismus ernährt.Marsili vergleicht die #EU der Krisen als Gefängnissystem, indem die seperaten Bevölkerungen in Einzelhaft sitzen.Ein Elend för die Vielen und Straffreiheit für die Diebe.

Was wir brauchen sind demokratische Institutionen wie sie die EU sein könnte, wenn man sie transformiert, die uns empowern Weltbürger*innen zu sein.

Everyone I know is bursting with frustration and rage over the new abortion laws and the kids incarcerated at the border and the rapid loss of precious wildlife and the endless police brutality towards people of color, and on and on and on. 
Telling YOUR story is an actionable way to evoke empathy in people who have different views and bring about change. This is so very important now that every issue is used to divide us- we need to come together- it is the only way we will survive.

If you are thinking of a story you want to tell, and need support- there is still room in my storytelling class starting this SUNDAY, and I would love to have you. DM me and let's DO THIS!

"More connects us than seperates us. In times of crisis the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one, single tribe."

Ya tres años emprendiendo este sueño de alimentar física y mentalmente a jóvenes y niños de escasos recursos por medio de la comercialización de alimentos sostenibles y conscientes. Pronto todos nuestros alimentos van a tener certificación orgánica (aparte de @acai.zambai que ya cuenta con su certificado) pero lo más importante es que muy pronto vamos a exportar nuestros productos a las principales ciudades de América Latina y el Caribe! Ya son más de 1000 niños y más de 300 horas de capacitación. Pronto abriremos nuestro segundo local @zambai.shack. El futuro que nos espera es maravilloso, y todos los sueños que te propones se pueden lograr. Desde el momento que creamos la marca tuvimos como principal objetivo exportar nuestra granolas y pre mezclas a las principales ciudades de Latinoamérica! Y estoy súper emocionado y agradecido con Dios por hacerme ver cada barrera como una gran oportunidad.

Der "Molecule Man" in #Berlin trägt heute eine Rettungsweste. Angezogen haben ihm diese Aktivisten aus Protest gegen die europäische #Flüchtlingspolitik. Zeitgleich wurde an der #Elsenbrücke ein Transparent mit der Aufschrift "Build bridges, not walls" angebracht.

Die Organisation #Seebrücke rief die EU-Mitgliedsstaaten auf "dem Sterben auf dem Mittelmehr endlich ein Ende zu bereiten und nicht weiter wegzuschauen."

In 2010 I was at home in Trinidad when I got an email saying I won the green card lottery thinking it was some scam... but after visiting the US embassy, to my biggest surprise, this was no scam. I in fact had been 1 in thousands of people in the south american/ caribbean region to win a green card. At first I was terrified. I had a life and career back home and now I had to uproot myself and leave everything I knew and loved behind to go live somewhere else in hope of a better life. It was hard. I was terribly home sick to the point of almost giving up and moving back home and it took my mother to talk me off the ledge. It’s been a long road just being a permanent resident knowing that at any moment I could be sent back, but now after 9 years of waiting.. i’m proud to say I am an American citizen!! If it wasn’t for the amazing people I met along the way that gave me a chance, and for the friends that I now call family, I have no idea how things would have been.
I’m grateful for every opportunity I have been blessed with and for all the beautiful graces in my life....don’t worry, deep down I will always be a Trini at heart 🇹🇹 #dualcitizen

“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.” 🌉
.
.
.
Indeed parenting is one of the toughest jobs, and there is no absolute right or wrong style in terms of parenting. Nonetheless, the way we raise our children does influence their personalities and impact their future. 💫
.
.
.
There are four different parenting styles as set out by developmental psychologist, Diana Baumrind, namely:.
.
1.	Authoritarian Parenting: A style in which parents set strict rules and expectations for their children and do not allow them to make their decisions. They will swiftly and severely punish their children once the rules are broken. 🙈
.
2.	Authoritative Parenting: Parents provide children with boundaries, but also give them freedom to learn from their mistakes. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
.
3.	Permissive Parenting: This type of parenting gives children some limits yet the parents maintain a peer relationship with their children. They would fulfill their children’s desire. 🤝
.
4.	Neglectful Parenting: Parents that don’t interact as much with their children and do not care about children’s behavior and discipline are generally classified under this category. 🤔
.
.
.
🚁 “Helicopter parenting” is a modern term of the authoritarian parenting style. As I attended a parenting seminar yesterday, it made me reflect upon how I raise my son. I am not sure if it has to do with the methodology my parents had used on me, but habitually I am more used to restricting my son to do particular things to protect him from harm and failure. In reality, especially with the intelligence of modern children, I find this style to have become less favourable. I also see that what used to work in the past is not applicable in the present. Whenever I set rules or restrictions, my son would ask me “Why?” or respond with “I don't want to do this.” I think that parenting should change as our children grow. I am trying to evolve and switch to become an authoritative parent. I need to start building that bridge with my son to allow him to share and communicate his ideas.
.
.
.
How about you? Which type of style are you?

And, of course, thank you Maria for trusting me into your home and allowing me to take intimate images of your family as they adjust to a life in the U.S. and also for letting me be part of your journey since that very first day back in November when I met you on the road from Mexicali to Tijuana, Mexico tired and hungry from months of walking! You are truly an exceptional woman and mother; I am lucky to know you!
Finally, thank you @time and @karamilstein for the thorough edit and believing in my vision and my work and allowing it to be shared with the world. ••• In this image Maria Lidia Meza Castro, 40 does the hair of one of her twin daughter while sitting in her living room on March 12, 2019.
For the past four months Castro and her children have been living in a house in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. while her attorneys are gathering all the documentation necessary for her asylum plea after she was granted entrance in the U.S. on December 18, 2019 at the Otay Mesa port of entry with the help of non profit Families Belong Together, Democratic Congressman Jimmy Gonzalez and Congresswoman Nanette D. Barragán. Castro is from San Pedro Sula, Honduras. She is a mother of nine, five of whom she brought on the long, arduous journey to the U.S. as one of the 5,000 plus Central American migrants traveling with the caravan in October 2018. Castro fled because her 13-year-old daughter had started to be threatened by the Maras, the local Mafia, who wanted her to sell drugs and start engaging in prostitution. Also, Castro abusive husband had left three years prior and she’d been raising her children alone in Honduras since ••• #mothersday #asylum #migrantcaravan #caravanmigrante #mujeressolteras #singlemother #mexico #washingtondc #buildbridgesnotwalls #weareallimmigrants #makeportraits #filmsnotdead #analogphotography @hasselblad #outtake

I am honoured to be asked by @age_positive_wellbeing to be part of the @woman_exhibition and answer the question ‘ what makes me a strong woman ? ‘ ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️I feel my strength lies in self acceptance - being unapologetic about who I am ,what I believe, and how I live my life. I follow my own path and don’t let others define me or need others to validate me. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️Adversity and challenges we face shape our character and it’s during the hard times we learn how strong we are emotionally, mentally and physically. Strong women embrace challenges and grow from the experience. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️A strong woman shows emotion, is kind,compassionate and forgiving . I think having empathy and understanding for others makes you less judgemental and more accepting. We build bridges. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ May your day be filled with good thoughts , kind people and happy moments 😊

Many of you have asked what exactly is CQ (Cultural Intelligence) and why is it applicable to things like diversity, inclusion, racism, and equality? Well, here’s your answer! ⠀
⠀
In short, CQ is a measurable skill set that evaluates your effectiveness working with people who are different than you. It’s a capability that can be learned and improved. The Cultural Intelligence Center developed as assessment and framework to score this skill in four quadrants: your drive, knowledge, strategy, and action. It’s been researched and facilitated all over the world! ⠀
⠀
What I like most about CQ is that it’s a skill - we’re not just talking concepts or things you should and shouldn’t do. We’re talking measurable outcomes and real change that starts with each individual person. Ownership has to start with you, with us. ⠀
⠀
I’m hosting a workshop in Wichita, KS next week to go through the assessment and CQ training and am planning another for the LA area soon! DM me if you’d like to join and I’ll get you set up. And if you’re curious about how CQ might apply to your workplace or community, let’s chat!

“In 2013, I got shot. I was in the centre; I heard the sound of shooting, I ran with my camera to this balcony, by myself. Israeli soldiers came out of this military base, they were shooting tear gas. One soldier was shooting at the kids with metal bullets. I tried to capture photos of him with the flash of the fire - I have lots of photos of him. Then one of the soldiers shot towards me and asked me to go home. Usually I do not listen to them, I answer I am doing my work. I did not say anything, I just came back in order to close the window of the balcony. The moment I came here to close the door I just saw the flash of a fire and I was shot on my face. The bullet was lodged inside my face. I remember shouting very loud, the soldiers started laughing very loudly. I was lucky that one of my colleagues was here. He helped me to go out of the centre. I was bleeding a lot. The first surgery was to take the bullet out of my face. The second one took 8 hours, they found no bones they could use at all in my face. They had to take a bone from my hip and put it under my eye, as well as 7 pieces of platinum. While I was at the hospital I decided to make a case against the soldier who shot me since I had a photo of him. The first night I came back home, more than hundred soldiers came to the camp and started to look for me at my house, my grandfather’s, my uncle’s house, they beat most of my family as well. Then they found me in one of the rooms. They put me on the floor. I remember they were 8 soldiers with masks on their faces and guns and they started beating me up with their legs, their guns. I told them: beat me everywhere if you want, but not in the face. The moment I said that, they started to target my face. Then they took me out of my house to this military base. After that they took me to a prison near Bethlehem. […] #theodysseyproject #TOP

SO obsessed with this hard-core cheesy smile! 🧀 
Real moments of mom life include poop smears, bites, long nights, and self-less times.And there’s no place I’d rather be. It’s hard but so amazingly rewarding. 
The other key thing that fills my heart with joy in this mom life is my mom-friends. This tribe of women I have encountered encourage me, cry with me, laugh with me, and troubleshoot this crazy ride. I’m so grateful for them!
Who are your life-savers? ⛑

You know when you meet people you instantly click with and feel like you were meant to do something together? Well, meet @elleglenisepike founder of @wherechangestarted. Last week we got to meet up in Denver while I was getting my CQ certification and I’m so glad we did! ⠀
⠀
Elle creates anti-racism resources and believes change starts from within. I couldn’t agree more. We have to be willing to search ourselves before we can engage in any sort of bridge building. Self awareness is power, people.⠀
⠀
If you’re looking for ways to engage in anti-racism work, consider purchasing Elle’s Be Antiracist guide and be prepared to start exploring your own cultural values and biases. The more we are unwilling to look at ourselves, the more impact we forfeit. ⠀
⠀
Start with something easy and ask yourself what motivated you to make some of the decisions you did today. Why do you think you’re motivated that way? Did culture play a part? Geography or socio-economic status? Get curious about yourself and let it lead you to becoming culturally intelligent ✨

A very genuine pleasure to meet @magicmagid this morning in his chambers at Sheffield Town Hall. He was kind enough to find time for us just a couple of hours before he formally departed his role at Lord Mayor of the city at midday.

It really is Sheffield's loss to see him leave. He has worked with charm, humility and passion, shunned the usual stuffiness that the mayoral role attracts, exhibited a willingness to be honest and champion the cause of those most vulnerable in society and been a bright beacon in the overwhelming muckiness of British politics in the last 12 months. Kindness, compassion and openness rather than self-interest and suspicion. Frankly, he has been a legend.

We should not let this be the last we hear from his important voice.

Thanks to @johnapedder and @bronwen.stone for engineering the visit and for your company this morning. You guys are awesome x

Happy Mother’s Day! I would like to dedicate this story to all the mothers around the world who fight to keep their children safe. A special thanks goes to my mother, Caterina, for her strength, determination and caring for others as a Pediatrician in a way that has no limits. Her example leads my way everyday. And, of course, thank you Maria for trusting me into your home and allowing me to take intimate images of your family as they adjust to a life in the U.S. and also for letting me be part of your journey since that very first day back in November when I met you on the road from Mexicali to Tijuana, Mexico tired and hungry from months of walking! You are truly an exceptional woman and mother; I am lucky to know you!
Finally, thank you @time and @karamilstein for the thorough edit and believing in my vision and my work and allowing it to be shared with the world. ••• “I do not want to go back to Honduras to be hungry all day long,” said Jeimy Giselle Meija Meza, 13 on March 8, 2018. “First of all, I want to study; I want to be an immigration lawyer to help fight for my people. 
For the past four months Maria Lidia Meza Castro, 40, and her children have been living in a house in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. while her attorneys are gathering all the documentation necessary for her asylum plea after she was granted entrance in the U.S. on December 18, 2019 at the Otay Mesa port of entry with the help of non profit Families Belong Together, Democratic Congressman Jimmy Gonzalez and Congresswoman Nanette D. Barragán. Castro is from San Pedro Sula, Honduras. She is a mother of nine, five of whom she brought on the long, arduous journey to the U.S. as one of the 5,000 plus Central American migrants traveling with the caravan in October 2018. Castro fled because her 13-year-old daughter had started to be threatened by the Maras, the local Mafia, who wanted her to sell drugs and start engaging in prostitution. Also, Castro abusive husband had left three years prior and she’d been raising her children alone in Honduras since ••• #mothersday #asylum #migrantcaravan #caravanmigrante #mujeressolteras #singlemother #mexico #washingtondc #buildbridgesnotwalls #outtake

All I wanted to do was to have a space to dance salsa and bachata, listen to some reggaetón and share a part of Latin and Caribbean cultures. I had no idea that this would resonate with others. ✨ So many people made this possible and I cannot thank them enough. The bridge has been built, and I am beyond excited to see where we will go from here. #playarelampago #lib2019 #buildbridgesnotwalls .

Always looking for a bridge to cross to a brighter future. Always looking for a better tomorrow. I'm on the road to new memories and happier days. It all starts with a new bridge on every new day.
