In February 2015, I decided to launch this site. Just months before the launch, I started getting serious about photography and, more importantly, the representation of people of color in media/art/life.
I look back over the past year and realized how much my life has changed since I launched Uncommon. I’ve shot some dope people, I’ve expanded my thinking, and I’ve also made some money (shout-out to making money). I also grew even more committed to supporting and highlighting the work and dreams of other people of color. I’ve profiled some dope, bold, and brilliant people; stepped out of my comfort zone; and met so many amazing entrepreneurs.
I also struggled, heavily, with exhaustion and many moments of self-doubt, but I pulled through thanks, in no small part, to great friends and my beautiful fiancée.
You may ask if the purpose of this post was to simply link you back to a bunch of the stories I’ve already written. Maybe. Maybe not. Just think of this post as my version of a clip show, without the corny transitions and storylines.
