It was like the cloak of “I’m tough, I don’t need your support,” the story I had about black people from just stereotyping them as resilient spirits, was lifted. My unconscious bias was recognized, my privilege was addressed, my silence was challenged and finally through it all, I began to see a real human being in need calling out for recognition, affirmation, love, attention, and acceptance.
Day 1 back to Taipei. I didn’t sleep at all on the 15 hour flight. I was too excited for the next month working alongside my sister, who is traveling to China with me in her first stab at working for the family bizz. Big step for her but there is definitely more to follow.
