#tbt story: When I was a kid, I used to figure skate. I had a skating competition in Buffalo, NY one year, and my mom decided to turn the weekend into a mother/daughters trip for my sister @ohheyitschioma and I. She’d heard Niagara Falls was up there, and she wanted to take her kids to see it. I think she wanted to see it, too. When we got there, we could see water. We watched the water foam and swirl, watched it collect and tip over the edge, but we couldn’t watch the wonder that had brought us. In order to see the great Falls themselves, we learned, you had to be standing on the Canada side! Oops. We had no idea. And we didn’t have our passports with us to cross over the border. I think some folks might have left shortly after that type of news, but we stayed. We stood there, watching and imagining just what exactly might lay on the other side. We had no idea. We stayed, appreciating the beauty that we had on this side...our time together. We took this pic that day. The sun was bright and in our eyes, but I remember being really happy that day and glad for the time together :-). #family #familyvacation

Sisters. My most important tribe of women. You’ve meant everything to me in my life. I’m thankful for the hysterical laughs and countless cries this life has given me with you; excited for all that is still left to come. I couldn’t do a single step of this thing without you. Love you both. #nationalsisterday #myverybestfriends #sisters

Had a great time being part of the @glblctzn #WorldWaterDay Conference hosted here in Nigeria. Being part of the panel to discuss the issues and very real and distressing numbers facing this country was powerful; sharing my own personal stories of accessing clean water in Nigeria over my lifetime, along with my experiences during this trip, and the very possible and bright bright future I believe Nigeria can have was also amazing. I believe in Nigeria’s possibility and know that, with effort from all involved- individuals and our appointed leaders- we can build a nation that supplies to all, not just the select few. Last, I want to thank everyone who made this entire effort possible. This could not have happened without you and I am forever grateful. @patrickconeil @teamid @glblctzn @natgeochannel @dr_betta @radicalmedia @proctergamble @amariyahospitality @rsweetingjr @micksheldrick @ryangall @xiosmall @claymarcelworld @ronaldthe7th @nlyonne @taranitup49 @iwildflower @ccsocietybedstuy @lisanicolewilk @ugomaadegoke @nwamakau and @ohheyitschioma. “Arise, O compatriots.

The first time I came home to Nigeria, I was 8 years old. I was with my family & remember being so excited for everything- visiting my parents’ homes, seeing relations I’d either never met or hadn’t seen in years, standing on the land where I am from. After a brief stop in the city, we’d head to our ancestral home in the village. Village life is a slice unlike anything that could ever be found elsewhere. There’s laughter, love, a slowing down of life, community, family & a genuine appreciation for every blessing that has been favored over your life. I love the village. But, with it comes inequities that, at times, cannot be described or explained. From my first trip, I couldn’t understand the lack surrounding so many basic human needs. Chief among them was the lack of clean, drinkable & useable water. If my family & I wanted to bathe or cook, we’d use the water we had collected from the rains. If we wanted water to drink or brush our teeth, it had to come from the bottled water we’d brought with us, and if it ran out...well, it ran out & we drank the rain water. It didn’t make sense to me at 8 or as I grew and would return home. It makes even less sense to me now. 69 million Nigerians live without clean, drinkable or useable water. I know it’s not the entire country living like this. I know as a nation we’ve seen tremendous growth that makes us all proud. But, we still have far too many in this country only surviving, not thriving. Far too many parents losing their children to waterborne infectious & diarrheal diseases that could be set in our nation’s past. The time is now. Through a joint effort of EVERY community taking up behavioral changes, like hand washing & stopping open defecation; paired with unwavering & committed support from passionate state leaders, like @dr_betta of Cross River, working to bring Nigeria & her youth to her fullest and brightest potential, we can DO this. I came to Nigeria with @glblctzn & @nationalgeo new docuseries #ACTIVATE with

But, the water & sanitation crisis in 🇳🇬 has already effected so many through the spread of fatal illnesses, but is specifically holding back so many of our bright young girls from school. For me, this one’s personal. This #InternationalWomensDay is for them. Because their fight is now our fight.

On this day at 658p, I was given the gift of coming into the world(thanks, Mum). I’m thankful to be here. Thankful for my amazing friends and incredible family. I’m still doing all the things I love, still experiencing so many of the things I had only dreamt of one day seeing. Guys, I’m 38 years old. I love it. I come from a culture and a place where the celebration of life lived is the gold standard. A place where you long to one day be old enough to not have to stand or sit on the floor when there are more bodies of elders than there are seats, but get to sit in a chair; as to let your wisdom rest. I can’t wait to one day sit. To one day be at the top of the hill and stand among the elders, or to receive the titles handed up to you by the youth of “Aunty” or “Mama.” This life is just getting started. Just beginning and I’m excited for all that is to come on this good road. Uzoamaka, jisike, nne. Let’s go, 38. I hear you’re a good one.

Ms. Tyson. She’s not a star. That’s too limiting to what she has gifted us. No, Ms. Tyson is an entire galaxy upon herself, a living breathing legend. She is a woman who has delivered her talent to us all, time and time again, for the better part of some 60+ years. An artist who, at 88 years young, gave us a Tony-winning performance filled with such a bounty of energy I had to see the show twice to be sure I hadn’t imagined it. And now this. Ms. Tyson. A true artist and crafts woman. We are just so lucky to have you. Esteemed congratulations. #governorsawards

Introducing the incomparable Ms. @valeriebjarrett at the #WhenWeAllVote event on National Registration Day? The honor was truly mine. A dazzling mind and champion for good, Ms. Jarrett has worked tirelessly as a public servant for both her community and country for decades, and she passionately energized so many women @the.wing. Let us all work just as hard as she, and make sure we show up to the polls this November; because #WhenWeAllVote, we make change. Thank you, Ms. Jarrett! @usowomen @whenweallvote

It is a true honor to share my directorial debut with you! It's a short doc featuring an amazing woman named Jhody Polk who is fighting to regain her eligibility to vote. Jhody is one of 1.4 million Floridians who can't vote because of felony convictions - but she's fighting to change that. I made the video for @TheLoveVote, where people like Jhody who can't vote share stories & move others to vote on their behalf. You can see the full video and promise Jhody to vote by clicking the link in my bio. #TheLoveVote #YesOn4 #femalefilmmakers

Pure joy. It is important to listen to a person’s story, to hear where and how someone’s beginnings, middles, or ends were formed. I had that last night in @lsarsour as we got to share space and love with our sister, @americaferrera and her new book, #AmericanLikeMe. It’s an amazing collection of stories from some phenomenal folks, for EVERYONE to read and relate. I loved contributing my own story; it’s available now so go, pick one up!!! Love and more love.

Yesterday was a GREAT day. I shared space with @rashidajones @appleofhisai and @traceeellisross engaged and passionate women interested in our nation’s future leaders and the greater good of this country. That leader is @staceyabrams #LeaderAbrams is a decisive and brilliant American focused on listening to the concerns of all the men and women in the great state of Georgia, and has worked tirelessly already to find common sense solutions. This is a time, I believe, where all people are looking to feel heard and to know that their concerns matter. She is lovely. She is kind. And from her professional and life experiences, she is not afraid of rolling up her sleeves to do the hard work. Early voting has begun here. We can either talk about it or we can be about it. Find time to make sure your voice is heard, and support gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as she is ready to support you. Ladies. I love you all and forever am in awe of your courage, talent, and fight. All the love. XxoU p.s. we look like a band. Ok, now I’m done. #teamabrams
