Today's #WCW is my friend and Miami dentist Dr. Amira Ogunleye (Dr. A). She
Graduated from Howard University College of Dentistry at the age of 23 (at the time the youngest dental grad to do it). She is co owner of Beautiful Smiles @beautifulsmilesfl, a cosmetic dental chain in South Florida and has been practicing for over 10 years. She is a wife and mother of 2, and yet her philanthropic nature led her to team up with the Miami Dolphins “Score an All Star Smile” to offer free cleanings and screenings to underprivileged children. She has also contributed to Goal Power outreach for underprivileged children, and yearly offers free braces treatment to those less fortunate who can’t afford braces. Thank you for taking such amazing care of my family (@dwyanewade bottom row especially thanks you! Lmao) Please let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.
Today's #WCW is my girl @TeyanaTaylor I've known this quadruple threat since she was just a kid. I've watched her become an unstoppable force of nature. This woman can sing, dance, act, and design clothes all while being a wife and mother to Junie. Her fitness platform Fade 2 Fit is motivational goals, and her music career has left her no stranger to the Billboard Hot 100. I'm so proud of all her accomplishments and the sky is the limit. Up next she is bringing to "Hit The Floor” and has a reality show that is airing on VH1 Feb 19 ...I can't wait to see what's next!! Love you mama! Lift us life her up in the light of goodness.
The Wades will be at @bncrockerpark this Saturday with our friend / teammate @ChanningFrye talking about my book #WereGonnaNeedMoreWine. With these two moderating the conversation, it’s bound to get realllll interesting | Details: Jan 13th @ 4pm. Barnes & Noble - 198 Crocker Park Blvd Westlake. I will be signing books!
This year marked the 25th anniversary of my rape. #MeToo I know I am not alone. Together we can eradicate sexual violence, harassment and abuse. Together we can have true equality. Together we can dismantle white supremacy and racism. Together we can center the voices of the most marginalized among us. Together we can acknowledge the jig is up and its BEEN time for monumental sweeping change. #TimesUpNow
Today’s #WCW is Tarana Burke, creator of the #MeToo movement and Senior Director at Girls for Gender Equity. She has been a warrior in the fight to end sexual harassment and sexual violence in all areas of life, making sure the movement has centered the voices of the most marginalized women. She has become a friend, and let me tell you, this woman has a strong, powerful voice, and is a fierce leader in this fight. Watching her get the recognition she deserves for doing the brutal difficult work day in and day out created a fire in my belly to continue in this fight. Thank you for all the work that you do to end discrimination, harassment and abuse. Let us lift her up!!!!
The clock has been ticking on the abuse of power. I stand in solidarity with women across every industry to say #TIMESUP on abuse, harassment, and assault. #TIMESUP on oppression and marginalization. #TIMESUP on misrepresentation and underrepresentation.
