Today I am mad...

I am angry at what is happening in classrooms all over Florida. As a former educator, I have been disheartened to hear that teachers can face felony charges and even jail time for having books that feature LGBTQ themes and prominently feature people of different races and colors.

Developing a sense of identity is a crucial part of growing up. At every age, children learn about themselves. If these children don't see themselves in books, in art, or on television, they begin to form a negative perception of who they are and where they come from.

 Of most books banned, 41% had LGBTQ themes or main characters, while 40% featured main characters of color. As a woman of color and Hispanic descent, I want my nieces and nephews to be represented. I hope you know I will use my platform to speak out against banned books and people being treated poorly. LOVE WINS always. Hate and fear do not have a home in my heart.

If you are in a state where books are being banned, you can join the Books Unbanned program from the Brooklyn Public Library and get a digital library card to access books you may not be able to read in your hometown.

Our interview today is with Mayi Lenz, a Personal Branding & Fine Art Photographer, Speaker, Podcaster, and Philanthropist passionate about helping women lead unapologetically.

Her photoshoots are a personal and transformational experience.  While many people may know her as a photographer, they may not know that she’s also been on a journey to deeply understand how we, as women, perceive ourselves and our bodies and how we can learn to shift our mindset from negative emotions to positive ones.

Photography has allowed her to have deeper conversations with women of all ages, body types, and sizes
