We were not permitted to sit back and settle for less because of how we were created, like our ancestors before us — we had to excel in intellect and brute force and doing good deeds to reach our destiny. Our minds and hearts, not our bodies, would shape our future. The Wakanda civilization, though fictional, brings into full relief the message that regardless of gender, complexion or looks that one’s intellect, soul and mind can provide remarkable outcomes for community, society and country.
For every woman, of African descent, or Latino descent, or Indian/Asian descent, or European descent, or cisgender woman, or trans-woman, or poor woman, we morph into identity, then into our destiny, from caterpillar to butterfly, we own our God-given fingerprint, and we resurrect despite societal burials of racism, sexism, and classism. We rise up, as we must, to become phenomenal!
We were not born to fit in a mold; we were not born to fit in; we were born to be different, to be authentic, to be free, to fly, and soar!
