I’ve never been good with bio’s. They’ve always felt like too constricting. Too limiting. Depending on the day or the hour you might get a different “version” of me. Right now, you’re getting the writer, but only because you can’t see the toddler on my lap (mother), or the overflowing inbox because I’ve got the creative part down, but the entrepreneur part not so much. Telling you I’m a storyteller, doesn’t tell you much about my family (lover) which in this season requires the majority of my energy and time. Or how I homeschool in between brand projects and work really hard to get free (advocate).
I guess what I’m trying to say is that, I’m just a girl. Made of flaws and flowers. Writing my way to liberation.
TyshiaShante.com is a space I created to sort of blend my professional work and other creative projects. A landing page of sorts. It’s personal and I wish I could better elaborate what that means, for you and for me, but like all of us, it’s a work in progress. I would think, that it’s part place to share my things and, of course, for stories. For documenting my journey in its raw form. Storytelling is my lifeline and I believe in its importance, especially for Black women. Sharing our stories is how we get free.
I write for myself. It’s how I discover, understand, and make sense of the women inside. But I share it for you.
Thank you for being here. Even if you’re just passing through. xo ~ Tyshia
