First Hike of 2014: Heather Lake

Diana, Jennifer, and I went on our first hike of the season this past weekend to Heather Lake. I was unprepared for the snow that we came across on the last third of the hike, but we still had a great time. I am excited to continue to go on more journey’s with close friends this season. Come one, come all! Northwest Forest Pass Required..

My Beloved World – US Supreme Court Chief Justice Sonia Sotomayor

My Beloved World - US Supreme Court Chief Justice Sonia Sotomayor

On Monday, March 10, 2014 I was able to hear United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor speak about her life and brand new memoir My Beloved World at the University of Washington’s HUB Ballroom. The event was packed. She gave us many words and lessons to live by and showed us what a world class leader looks like. Although I’m already halfway through her book I really wanted a signed copy. They ran out of copies, but guess who’s face showed up the morning after in the Seattle Times! 😉

#BlackHero Thurgood Marshall

#BlackHero Thurgood Marshall

Brown v. The Board of Education… Need I say more? Thurgood was a Supreme Court justice in the highest court of the land. Dedicated to justice, equality, fairness and freedom for all.

“None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”

#BlackHero Whoopi Goldberg

#BlackHero Whoopi goldberg

Multi-talented, funny, witty and outspoken. Whoopi has always been a portrait of honesty and has told it like it is. From being an actress, to voice actress, host, humanitarian, writer and producer she’s definitely one of my favorite #BlackHero’s.

“I used my imagination to make the grass whatever color I wanted it to be.”
