When people ask about influence and people who inspire me, her name was never missed. I remember first reading her poems when I began to write. I was so amazed at the power, grace and knowledge she projected in every line as well as in the way she walked and talked. She was a woman, phenomenally. What a phenomenal woman. R.I.P Beautiful ✊👭🌷

So my mom found the box with some of my old fashion illustrations in it today. The top left is from fourth grade and the top right is a recent sketch from my black swan collection. Its crazy how much i’ve grown over the years! Now i look at these like “wow, i sucked”, but then i remember being so proud of my work. This photo really shows how hard work, dedication and practice makes perfect. No, im not saying that im perfect, however, what I will say is that I’ve come so far and all I can do is continue to grow and learn. God has blessed me with a passion and a talent that I will continue to share with those around me for the rest of my life! #FASHIONISLIFE #AceaniMichelle

Good Morning! This is a small bit of the “Fowl Play” exhibition that showed at one of my dream schools, F.I.T. in NYC last month. The inspiration was different bird species. I wish I could have gone! #FIT #fitmuseum #FashionInstituteofTechnology
