"We love our jobs, we show up and we teach, we share the music we love and the music that we know the soul community loves- but sometimes we feel when our community looks nothing like us- WE REALLY HAVE TO WORK HARD.
The reality is, being a woman of color myself, my parents warned me I would have to work HARD to prove people wrong, sometimes it was easy- other times not.
Tina came in SWINGING, I’d watch her lead as a rider and be in total aw of her. She’s an absolute magnet, you are afraid to take your eyes of her because she dances freely for us, she loves on is, and just as much as we see her- she sees us."
