She attempted suicide at the young age of 8, her story goes on from there on the challenges her young gifted son is experiencing and how she handled it. My guest today Llacey Simmons is serious about having us all sit down and have Real Talk about our lives and experiences. On her website beautifully taboo she writes:
DEAR AMERICA, We have a perception problem… And, we NEED to talk. We’ve been asking you 3 important questions…
- Who can represent the face of giftedness?
- How will we know success when we see it?
- What is the real definition of beauty?
Why are we ignoring the natural diversity right in front of us? America…”this” perception we’ve settled for isn’t working. It’s time for a NEW REALITY… Time to CELEBRATE our diversity! Unapologetically ready, Beautifully Taboo
Change starts with us, right now – TODAY!
