No matter if I am near or far from my home town of Los Angeles, California, I always make sure others are aware that I am a proud Los Angeleno. Some of my favorite rappers are from Los Angeles, like Tupac, Snoop, Kendrick, and the list goes on. Tupac has to be my favorite though. He had the ability to be raw and real, while speaking the truth, even though I can do without the cursing. This shirt above truly shows my love for him as an artist and who he was as an individual. Last year in my Women and Gender Studies class we studied the evolution of black women in America from the 1800’s to modern day. I decided to do a project on the word “bitch” and how it correlates to women. I used an interview clip of Tupac explaining why young men and people refer to women and girls as “bitches” and took the song lyrics of his song “Wonda Why They Call You Bitch”. The video below shows why Tupac is my favorite rapper and I am not afraid to express my love for him through my fashion.

For all who don’t know me, my name is Ivy, but everyone calls me “Coco”. My older brother gave me the nickname when I came out my mother’s womb, and the name Coco has stuck to me ever since. As I grow into a young woman, I have learned to love God, my family, fashion, sports, food, traveling, and most importantly, I’ve learned to love myself. As I begin my new journey in starting my blog, I want all to understand me from a truthful perspective. I am all positivity and that’s how I want things to remain. I want to inspire individuals and let them know that it is okay to be yourself. There is no shame in being a naturally born weirdo, and that is definitely what I am. I want my blog to be an adventure, an adventure you can live through and learn from. I hope you all continue to thrive and enjoy life, because tomorrow is not promised.
