I know this blew Twitter up {and I don’t even have a Twitter account!} Also I think she might be my future daughter.. but we’ll have to wait and see. A lot of people are talking about her but I had to give my little $.02:

Super proud {and in awe} of this young sister, Kyemah! She looks AaaaaaahhhhMAZING!!!! Not only is she embracing her natural hair and sporting a beautiful, African-inspired gown the she herself SKETCHED AND DESIGNED, but she’s showing the world that beauty has so many shades and corners and levels! Too much cleavage for an 18-year-old me but I woulda definitely rocked the $#!@ outta version of this to my prom if I could do it over.

Sometimes we get trapped in our own prejudice ways. We don’t notice how the idea of a particular type of person changes the way we live our lives. The most creative people are the ones who step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the world around them. My abilities as an artist allow me to experience the benefits that versatility fosters.

omygah… I think I need to remind you that she’s 18! Already so optimistic yet realistic. Kudos to Kyemah!! And to whoever raised her because she’s well on her way! We need more Black parents/teachers to exemplify self-acceptance and self-love and raise the youth to do the same. Also be proud of who they are as well as allowing this kind of freedom and self-expression. It’s contagious. And we need more sisters like her!!

  1. You hit the nail right on the head with this one. It is definitely inspiring to see, and refreshing to see a woman our youth sporting her confidently. This is something we all should be able to appreciate.
