Hey, Fam! ๐ŸŒŸ What an incredible journey we embarked on at The inaugural AAKOMA Project Sneaker Gala! ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ The AAKOMA Project Sneaker Gala was something we dreamed up in strategic planning in 2022 as a way to celebrate our Team AAKOMA youth leaders and as a profound celebration of our shared mission to #RAISECONSCIOUSNESS, #EMPOWERPEOPLE AND #CHANGETHESYSTEM of mental health for Intersectional Youth and Young Adults of Color (IYYAC). The event encompassed the essence of our organization's dedication and the unwavering commitment to our global community. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ซ During this unforgettable evening, we engaged in inspiring discussions led by @tanayewhite (brilliant supermodel) , absorbed the wisdom of a captivating keynote from our Team AAKOMA Youth, and immersed ourselves in artistic expressions that mirrored the resilience and strength of our community. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’™ The Gala wasn't just a singular event; it was the continuation of a movement. Through thought-provoking dialogues and collaborative efforts, we delved into the heart of the challenges faced by IYYAC and envisioned innovative pathways for progress. ๐ŸŒˆ The connections made and the bonds formed at the AAKOMA Project Gala were profound. Our shared passion for mental well-being, self-empowerment, and dismantling barriers united us in a common purpose that goes beyond the event itself. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’ซ As we reflect on this unforgettable experience, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to each one of you who attended, supported, and contributed to the success of The AAKOMA Project Gala. Together, we've set a powerful precedent for unity, advocacy, and empowerment that will resonate for years to come. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’ซ Stay connected as we continue our journey of empowerment and change. Your participation has and will continue to make a significant impact on the lives of Youth and Young Adults of Color. Here's to the memories shared and the momentum ignited at the first ever AAKOMA Project Sneaker Gala! ๐Ÿฅ‚๐ŸŒŸ #lovelightscience #mentalhealth #youthmentalhealthsupport #teenmentalhealth #AAKOMGala #TeamAAKOMA
Hey, Fam! ๐ŸŒŸ Today, I'm here with weekly wisdom centering healthy boundary setting with love and compassion. In our relationships, our loved ones may come to us with their burdens, seeking our help and support. While we want to be there for them, it's essential to assess if we're ready to carry that weight at that moment. Before responding, take a pause and ask yourself if it's something you can handle right now. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ซ Remember, it's okay to prioritize your mental well-being and emotional capacity. It's not selfish to put yourself first; it's an act of self-love and self-care. If you find that you're not in the right space to carry that burden, develop a kind and loving script to express your feelings to your loved one. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŒˆ Communicate openly and honestly, letting them know that you want to be there for them, but maybe not right now. Suggest an alternative time or offer other support options that align with your capacity at the moment. This approach honors both your needs and theirs. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’™ Setting boundaries doesn't mean you love them any less; it shows that you value yourself and your mental well-being. It also opens the door for a more meaningful and supportive relationship where both parties feel respected and understood. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’ซ #lovelightscience #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthsupport #youthmentalhealth #teenmentalhealth #blackwomen #blackwomenmentalhealth #weeklywisdom #healthyboundaries #relationships #selfcare #selflove
Hey, Fam! ๐ŸŒŸ I'm excited to take you on a journey back to the beginnings of The AAKOMA Project, back in 1999 (๐Ÿ˜ฎ) where we formed our youth advisory board as soon as we secured our funding to help us launch. When we established The AAKOMA Project, we recognized the vital role young people play in shaping their futures and communities. Team AAKOMA was born out of the belief that youth should have a direct and influential voice in the initiatives that impact their mental well-being and overall lives. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ซ Through Team AAKOMA, we've created a safe and supportive space where Youth and Young Adults of Color can actively participate in decision-making processes. By engaging with them, we gain unique perspectives, fresh ideas, and an understanding of the challenges they face in today's world. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’™ The importance of working together with youth cannot be overstated. Their lived experiences, resilience, and creativity enrich our efforts in raising consciousness and driving positive change. We listen, learn, and collaborate to create meaningful and relevant programs that address the unique needs of Youth and Young Adults of Color. By working hand-in-hand with Youth and Young Adults of Color, we amplify their voices, instill a sense of ownership, and create a powerful ripple effect of positive change. The involvement of Young People of Color in decision-making processes is not just about representation but also about creating inclusive solutions that benefit the entire community. ๐ŸŒป #lovelightscience #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthmatters #selflove #selfcare #youthmentalhealth #childrenmentalhealth #youthmentalhealthsupport #teenmentalhealth #peopleofcolor #youthofcolor #blackwomen #peopleofcolormentalhealth #peopleofcolormentalhealthmonth
