Loving today’s @google sketch celebrating #MayAyim by the talented @laura_breiling from 2018.
Read on, words by Google:
Today’s Doodle celebrates author, poet, and activist May Ayim. It was on this date in 2010 that "May Ayim Ufer" or "May Ayim Street" was named in her honor in Berlin.
Born in 1960 to a Ghanaian father and a German mother, Ayim drew inspiration from a difficult childhood to become a prominent figure in the Black German movement.
Ayim’s pioneering work helped lay the groundwork for the field of Black German history. Her 1986 thesis, “Afro-Germans: Their Cultural and Social History on the Background of Social Change,” was the first scholarly work on Afro-German history from the Middle Ages to the present. This thesis also provided the foundation of her renowned book, “Farbe Bekennen.” In addition to her scholarly publications, Ayim’s poetry collections brought the Black German struggle for equality to an international stage.
Ayim’s journey as an author and poet also intersected with her work as an activist. For example, she partnered with other activists to form the Initiative Schwarze Deutsche (ISD), which served as a network of Blacks in Germany striving for self-empowerment.
Ayim’s 1992 speech, “My Pen Is My Sword: Racism and Resistance in Germany,” stressed the importance of writing as a vehicle for social transformation. Today's Doodle by Berlin-based illustrator Laura Breiling celebrates Ayim’s scholarly and literary work, which continues to educate and inspire people across the globe. 🙌🏾
"It's human, human natural hair body, so it's fine," Ucap Alexandra Gottardo, artis kenamaan Indonesia.
Lewat podcast 'Podkesmas' yang digawangi Omesh, Imam Darto, Surya Insomnia, dan Angga Nggok, artis cantik berusia 35 tahun itu mengatakan, enggak pernah mencukur bulu ketiaknya.
Bulu ketiak bukan menjadi masalah baginya. Bahkan, ia pun mengaku enggak menggunakan deodorant.
"Kenapa orang berpikiran kalau ada hair ampits itu 'oh its gross' . Justru sebenernya hair ampits itu enggak bikin bau lho. Bau itu berasal dari dalam tubuh, kalau emang di dalam tubuhnya sudah bau kita punya hair ampits atau enggak akan bau aja," ungkap Alex.
How about you, Beauty

8 Mart’a ozel yepyeni bir koku ❤️
Pembe biber, mor zambak ve paculi kokulariyla olusturulmus bir edt. Fresh olmamasina ve hafif tatli bir koku olmasina ragmen rahatsiz etmiyor. Gun icerisinde tazelemeseniz bile kaliciligi guzel.
Ben sise tasarimini cok begendim. Zarif ve minimal. Tek problemim kapagiyla oldu. Acarken zorlaniyorum, kapatirken de ayni sekilde 🙈
K03 katalogunda lansmana ozel vucut losyonu hediye, kacirmayin bence ❤️

Tal día como hoy, en 2005, Rachel Weisz ganó el Oscar a la mejor actriz de reparto por su interpretación en The Constant Gardener. 🎥
Su filmografía es muy extensa y también muy variada, pues ha participado tanto en taquillazos como The Mummy como en películas indie, además de formar parte del elenco de un puñado de obras de teatro.
Confundida a menudo con Brooke Shields (mirad en Google, por favor 😲), su carrera profesional incluye apariciones en portadas de revistas como Vogue o Esquire aunque es contraria a los retoques estéticos: «Botox should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown».
Es muy discreta y, por esta razón, muy poca gente conoce que está casada y tiene una hija con el actor Daniel Craig, el agente 007.

“If you haven't confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started. ”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quotes like these used to scare the hell out of me. There was a time in my life when I was less than confident and worried that my self-doubt meant that I would never succeed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I fell into the trap of believing that confidence was either something you had or had not - and that it would determine my ability to succeed. Ha, screwed before I had even started! or so I thought...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I didn't understand at the time was that confidence can be learned just like any other skill - and that moreover authenticity and the acceptance of my insecurity, would in fact be a cornerstone of becoming more confident.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The more I resisted my self-doubt, the intenser it got. The more I learned to embrace my fear, the softer it got. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can be scared and brave at the same time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Authenticity is an acknowledgement that we are human beings with a mixed bag of emotions - and once we learn to accept that and live from that place of authenticity, we become more deeply confident in ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My friends know how I love to tell stories. When I was a little girl I was seriously thinking of becoming an actress. During my summer holidays, when I had my free time I was buying the cheapest tickets to the theater ( where I could hardly see the stage ) and was just sitting there and listening to the music and imagining myself with actors... right there on the stage!😎 years later I was studying sociology, English, French at the university and I completely forgot my childish dreams. I might have look successful for other people but deep inside I was truly desperate and frustrated. So I was living my boring life until the moment when I took the brush in my hand for the first time. It literally changed everything and I knew that It would never be the same. Through art I found a way to unlock this beautiful, pure, creative energy that was dying deep inside of me for for so many years!!!! Because of art I am able to tell people my magical fairytales, which makes me and people around really happy! 💫✨

Accepting and embracing both your dark and light side is so important to actually loving yourself. How can’t you love you if you do not love all of you

Misbah’s water runs deep.
She is deeply connected to womb, vibrations, and is a generous warm soul.
Her connection with dance and music is ancient and runs through her entire being, just like her love for her family and friends.
We met many moons ago, always briefly, until now- so happy and honoured you said yes to this project.
Your piece was meant to manifest through your being, I knew it from the first moment I heard the song— I closed my eyes and watched you dance it.
Looking forward to Wednesday.
Thank you for being part of The Lioness💛
