“During my childhood, I was bullied a lot for being one of the darkest in the school. I always felt ashamed to walk past groups of the black schoolboys at bus stops because they always had something to say which left me feeling diminished. They were always so silly and creative with the insults, too, “OI she’s blacker than the bottom of my air force 1”, “yo she’s burnt like toast”… the list goes on and on.” @breerunway writes about her experience with colourism.

Resilience Lives In Women - iPhone notes edition 
A bit about the piece : I felt compelled to write about the topic of resilience because I always mention the word when I talk about women or write about women, the word and feeling is so personal to me. I see it every single day displayed by women in many different ways. I also wanted to write something for this publication to reach women because I want them to know they can survive anything and recognising resilience and the power of it is imperative in helping women.

I am resilient.
I still bloom
After storms
After fires
After drought
Broken,
But not hopeless.

I am resilient.
It’s not that scar
That pound
That mark
That down;
Because I still bloom.
I flourish
In darkness
Because I am light,
Because I am,
Resilient.
