Fly Girls Read
My middle school girls have always copied me, from my shaved Mohawk to my long pointy nails. If I get a long weave, they will get one too. If I wear docs, they'll get some too... Made me more cognizant of my small influence.
If you see me in the city, you know, I always have a book in my hand and sticky notes in my back pocket. Now I'm catching them with my books and stickies in their little designer bags. Probably because I told them, fly girls read... we have to know everything and there's always more to know so you can't ever stop reading if you want to stay fly!
Not too many of my role models growing up read in front of me... Did yours? Doesn't matter. Point is, show them what they should be doing. Actions leave lasting impressions.
