Healing Burnout Event

To whoever was feeling burnout yesterday, this event was meant for you. 

Yesterday, I attended the LGBTQIA+ Wellbeing Series: Healing Burnout event to help out with setting up the designated room and managing the sign-in table.

Alongside helping, I participated in the Healing Burnout event as I, too, was feeling burnt out. 

We had a trauma-informed holistic health practitioner named Tara Tonini, who hosted the event and taught us many techniques to use when feeling stressed. 

I learned how to identify my signs of burnout, how to manage stress, and how to reduce headaches and inflamed muscles. 

The workshop was very educational, and participants were able to share their specific stresses and receive pieces of advice from our practitioner, Tara.


Tara brought packets of dietary supplements called ‘Superieur,’ used to refresh and treat the human body. I got to try the lime-blueberry flavor, and I must say that it was really refreshing. Participants were able to take home these dietary supplement powders; I love free stuff!

This was a great opportunity for me and for others to have been able to participate. 

If you would like to learn more about Tara’s services, you can visit her website

Supa Dupa Fly: LGBTQ+ Hip-Hop Til Infinity Fashion Show


On May 7th, I attended the Supa Dupa Fly Event held at the Academic Complex Theater at City Tech. 

I was responsible for creating a Sign-In sheet and having attendees sign it, managing the Gender & Sexuality promotional table, and helping guide the attendees to the theater. 

 Attendees were amazed at the G&S table and wanted to take photos. I handed out free G&S tote bags for whoever wanted them, and they were a big hit! We also had a raffling system for whoever signed in, and two winners received a signed book from our guest speaker, Dr. Shante Paradigm Smalls.

During my free break period, I watched a few minutes of the show and listened to two beautiful poets recite their poetry. Since I’m a poet, I felt inspired and moved while listening to the poems.

The models walking down the alley to show off their designs was a surreal sight. Many beautiful pieces were shown on the runway. Not only were the models wearing the fashion major student’s designs, but there was also a showroom surrounded by students’ textile work. I could see the creativeness of every design shown while I walked through the showroom. 


I am grateful to have been involved in this event, and I can’t wait to attend more!
