All too often, Black women hear or believe that "Black women don't swim, don't exercise, are controlling," among many other stereotypes. And when they fall out of these stereotypes, they are faced with issues of belonging, being called "crazy" or "not Black enough" BY THEIR OWN COMMUNITY for wanting to get out of the box. I, for one, am tired of it and wanted to do something about it.

So I founded Insert(VERB)Here, LLC to provide experiences that challenge the personal limits and fears imposed upon Black women by society or themselves. I strongly believes this builds confidence and character, by giving women that feeling of invincibility! Personal experience tells me that surviving great and not so great experiences makes you feel invincible; like you can do anything!

Insert(VERB)Here is taking that challenge to the extreme! I have designed the very first travel project of Insert(VERB)Here to take one young lady on her very first trip OVERSEAS! (What's more out of the box than foreign soil?!) This project encompasses 3 goals for personal transformation.
1) Empathy Training (understanding the states of other people)
2) Eliminating stereotypes and stigmas (Black women do it too)
3) Public Service (passing on the blessings)

The entire trip will be documented with blogs, photos, and videos for all of you - my family, friends, and friends-to-come - to use as a blueprint to getting out to explore the world. And if you can't get out and explore the world just yet, you can live vicariously through us until you can!

I need YOUR help to make this happen. You can donate any dollar amount because every little bit helps! Every dollar will receive a reward from Insert(VERB)Here. The reward tiers are as follows:

Bronze Level: $1-25 Insert(VERB)Here Magnet
Silver Level: $26-75 Postcards (7) from each day of the trip + Bronze Level benefit
