Just do it.
Like Nike, that's what I had to tell myself when taking a leap to request to contribute to CRWN mag, a quarterly magazine to cater towards natural hair and the women who wear it.
I first learned about the magazine when doing a write up for it on BlackHairInformation back in April. I was immediately intrigued by the fact that this manifesto would be so much different then the typical magazine. I pre-ordered and a couple months later in June decided to send in a request to contribute.
To my surprise an editor got back to me quickly and asked me to do a piece about coconut oil.
Fast forward 3 months later, I was receiving my copy in the mail and opening up to page 79 and seeing my words in a tangible form was so rewarding. I've been writing for over a year but this is the first time I've ever been a part of a printed project.
The aesthetic alone makes it a great coffee table magazine and in addition it is filled with beautifully written essays, content, and creative images.
I'm so glad I took a leap even when I doubted myself. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. What do you dream about? What are you wanting to try deep down? Just do it! #JustBecauseItsTuesday
Be awesomely amazing,
