Planning Ahead with World Sports Camp

Disclosure: This post is a paid partnership in collaboration with World Sports Camp. All opinions expressed are my own.   

As the end of the year approaches, I’m starting to think about my kids’ plans for next summer, especially because we're a big sports family. My husband’s former professional basketball career has definitely inspired the kids to lean towards basketball, and this school my 5th grader has successfully taken up intramural tennis, Covid-19 precautions and all. When I recently learned about World Sports Camp right here in Massachusetts and their plans for Summer 2021 I was excited to learn more!

A Round-Up: Where I've Been

{via Images by Amber Robinson}

The silver lining of the social unrest this year is that I've been invited to share my voice in more prominent spaces. It's been both gratifying and unnerving as for the longest time I felt unheard and unseen, but even still in the face of Black Lives Matter as a trending topic interest is indeed waning

I'll still be here, steadfast whatever happens beyond this "awakening."


Here's a round-up of a few places I've been showing up ICYMI:

OK 40

For the past few years, rather than make New Years resolutions, I've curated a list of 10 things I'm looking forward to. As 2019 ended I had trepidation about creating my list and as the first quarter ended I realized it was good that I didn't. Most things I would've put on that list ended up canceling. Now, a few days into 40 years old, I'm recommitted to continuing to be thankful for my family and my health.

I'm Speaking: Mom 2.0 Everywhere

The past 3 years I've attended Mom 2.0 - a conference for moms, marketers and media. This year's a bit different: it's later in the year and it's virtual, renamed to Mom 2.0 Everywhere. As much as I'd miss being there in person, I'm excited for this new format that allows attendees to take advantage of so many awesome sessions without the flurry of running around from place to place.

My session Creating a Multicultural Community: How To Create A Diverse, Inclusive Online Space was pre-recorded and airs Wednesday, September 16 at 1p.m. EST. In it my co-panelists Paulita David, Nailah Blades, Anne Vorrassi and I share insights from our collective experience fostering diverse communities virtually - a topic that is so important right now given all that's going on. 

If you haven't snagged a ticket, you can follow the #mom2summit hashtag from September 15-17 to get bits of wisdom from the session. There are always so many resources and amazing insights shared!

Back-to-School Snacking with Hood Milk

This post was sponsored by Hood as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Remember that color-coded schedule going around during the first round of distance learning? My kids' favorite color was "snack time!" With a few more weeks left until school starts, I'm partnering with Hood Milk to share my family's back-to-school snacking strategy. Hood Milk contains no artificial growth hormones and has important nutrients for my growing kids!

Here's what's working for us this back-to-school snacking season...

Check it Out: I'm on The Riveter's List!

Yesterday, I mentioned The Riveter's list of "10 Black Womxn Activists You Should Know" and today I wanted to come back and share the post itself! This summer has been a juggle of sorts between business and family obligations, but I'm thankful that I had opportunities like this in between. Visibility like this has yielded other opportunities, and I'm thankful to my followers who share and amplify my work.

Click here to read the post!

While my activism work isn't a professional designation for me, it absolutely is inherent in my role as a mom. It's how I became activated! 

Earlier this summer I stepped down from two formal volunteer positions I held with Moms Demand Action and the Wellesley Racial Justice Initiative for the past 3 years, but I continue to champion their work and remain active in other areas within my local community.
