The people who helped shape me (Kali):

My Aunt Dorothy- is a sassy, jazzy, intelligent women that made me believe that I was a women "without borders!' That I could be and do everything positive.
Amina- is a beautiful, vibrant and intelligent women that treated me like a baby sister. She was my mentor and held my hand through a lot of rough events in my life.
Sonia Sanchez-is a beautiful and marvelous writer, activist, and scholar who inspires me to write. I started going to her speaking engagements when I was about twelve. My mother's friend took us every for the next three or four years afterward.
