It has been over three months since It’s Brave to Cry first became available and I still feel like I am floating! The people I have met throughout this process and the opportunities I have been presented have blown me away and I am so thankful for this supportive community that It’s Brave to Cry is now a part of. It is this beautiful space where we have reimagined masculinity and what it truly means to be brave. A space where we understand the importance of working through and understanding your emotions and the bravery this often takes. But also a community that believes that every child should have the opportunity to have their eyes light up and their heart swell when seeing the reflection of themselves in literature in a positive way. Having the opportunity to see my story do this for young black and brown boys in real time, are moments I will always treasure.
It has also been so exciting to watch my story grow as it is now available online at Walmart, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon!! Please know that this is only the beginning for this story and I know that this is a message that still needs to be shared. I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon and there a some amazing new brave projects in the works and new career opportunities as well! I look forward to sharing my journey with all of you.
