I’ve spent 6 years (since I turned 20 & got ‘uni student jobs’ that were no longer illegally low wage) saving up for this gear/set up. 1 item a year + a couple of hand-me-downs (tnx @mei.swan.lim @pantherpantherav 😉) . It’s been/is hard & slow to learn. Especially when my life situation (#u don’t know my actual story) and a warped set of values placed on me by the society I’m surrounded by has demanded I put everything else first as my creative desires/ capacities are a ‘whim’ and “won’t make you money so don’t prioritise it” / “art won’t pay the bills” 😒👎🏽 + I was deprived of the memo during developmental years that “you are worthy & capable & you’re passions & creative personality are respectable & beautiful” (😒tnx a lot childhood & then college boys #metoo ) But anyway- Now I have to keep telling myself “you’re not too old” and I set out to try and create music for the sake of music, beauty, my sanity & contributing to the world of art as a means of positive social change. Which is all I’ve ever truly yearned for. 🙌🏽💫 I’m dyslexic and make the dumbest mistakes each time I try and use all this tech. Lol sometimes hours of hard work go pear shaped because of a dyslexia induced mistake🍐. But tnx to best husbo ever tech nerd & my perseverance. Here’s to life lessons learnt, better L8 Than never 😏🙃🤙🏽 and to art💓 and to trying. P.s. if you’re a producer or artist or know of one and wanna help me develop or master ma beats, or collab, HMU.

#Repost @porqueallah (@get_repost) ・・・ Whenever the 6 of us travel as a group, people are hella confused. Everywhere we go the double takes are endless. When people approach us to ask us where we are from of course the first answer is of course SCARBOROUGH. When they look confused, we say Canada. But that's never good enough they always follow up with 'but ORIGINALLY'. Once someone even said to us "Canada? But you're not white." lol. So here it is, collectively our families are from: Bangladesh, Egypt, Eritrea, Pakistan, and Somalia. This photo has an interesting story. We were sitting on these steps watching live salsa music. Shortly after we took this photo this white lady approached us in awe. She began telling us how 'unique' we were and how beautiful of a group we looked. She told us she worked for Steve Madden and that she really wants more 'ethnic folks' to be represented as part of an upcoming photo shoot in Paris and asked us all if we were interested. We all declined. lol What would you have done? Do you think we should have said yes🤔 #cuba #trinidad #travel #travelinspo #traveldiaries #womenofcolour #followmeto #muslimgirls #friends #squad #squadgoals #canada #toronto
