How I Gave My Birthday A Different Meaning This Year

Jun 02, 2020

“We must be the change we wish to see in the world”- Mahatma Gandhi 

First- thank you all for your birthday wishes! Blessed to be loved by many. It’s been a week to remember for many reasons. One thing core in our parenting and passion for Travel Plus Them is teaching our children about the world, the people, all the different faiths, cultures, and to be proud of who they are. This is the first year in many years that we have not traveled for my birthday, but I still made the celebration meaningful.

As person of color who grew up in Teaneck, NJ, I will forever stand by my black brothers and sisters. I want to teach children to speak up for themselves and others when they experience things that are unfair.

While there are many ways to support- this moment is about my voice. Some people are lucky to have voices that can be heard but that freedom is not extended to everyone. And unfortunately- this is true in many parts of the world. Hence please use your voice, educate others, and fight for those who deserve the freedom to be heard.  If you ever want to talk more or share your point of view, please do not hesitate to contact me.
