Congrats to Sydney Harvey

George Washington University
The last eleven days of my life have been caps, gowns, and great views. With all that’s going wrong in the world now, it’s time I share this positivity.
TA-DA! WE’RE LIVE! My website is refreshed with a whole new look, my FREE e-book is available for download, and it’s beautiful outside! Head over to the link in my bio and let me know what you think!
BONUS: New on the blog, I’m letting you in on the 7 things I’ve been doing in quarantine... and, reality check, the 5 I didn’t get to yet!
LINK IN BIO
*My name is Erin Henshaw (she/hers) and I am 35 years old. *I grew up in Vienna, Virginia and have been quarantining in Annapolis, Maryland. My first job was at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in DC.
*I co-founded @themindbodycrew to bring trauma sensitive trainings and programs to people around the world. *I am a survivor of childhood #trauma . I had a difficult entry into the world and home did not feel like a safe place to learn, grow and be myself. I am grateful to those who have supported me and my work enough to learn my story and give me what I need when I ask. I’m even more grateful when people ask me what I need. *I began to #research trauma and #healing because of the pain I have experienced and the amount of times I get triggered on a daily basis. I wanted to heal myself, understand the motivation of others who hurt me, and find community healing amongst this chaos. *I #teach trauma informed facilitation around the world, firstly because I really want to know all types of people. Secondly, because I am an experiential learner and privileged enough to make that happen. *I have lived on $10-30k for the last 8 years because of the #generosity of friends who have let me stay on their couches, beds and floors to learn and teach something that I believe is necessary to end harm in its many forms.
*I OFTEN stand up for myself and my belief that all humans deserve to have their needs met, physically and emotionally.
*I OFTEN face #rejection from the people whose love and support I value most in my life. As such, I often suffer crippling moments of loneliness, #fear and #anxiety , but have mostly learned not to let them tip into #depression and suicidal ideation. *I sometimes hear that my challenging ideas are right, and that gives me the strength to continue. *I OFTEN ask people to support my company and my ideals and they MOSTLY don’t respond, growth mindset and innovation models have helped me understand that I'm not failing. *I still can’t actually believe that I haven’t given up on my ideals, but somehow my little voice is always the one that wins, so I am immensely proud.
*What I share on social media is to teach you about me and what I believe

Happy Wednesday DC!
My name is Vyette (@vyettetiya) and I’ll be taking over today!
I call a few places home... Kenya, Seattle and now Washington DC. I’ve been in DC for five years now including graduating from American University. Now, I work in international development for a government contracting firm and I’m a freelance dancer.
I love this city. I knew that I wanted to study here, work here, and eventually build roots. DC is iconic for many reasons. But what I’m most excited about is diving into the creative and innovative pockets scattered throughout the city. I’m grateful for the friends who have become family here, and excited for new connections to come. Looking forward to sharing my day with y’all!

Hey kids, it’s Kate. How’s quarantine? Anyone else’s knees locking up?
So I moved to DC about 7 years ago after spinning a wheel I crafted in my parents basement because I enjoy a lack of decision making. I got into stand up a few years later and now that’s the majority of my personality outside of cats, coffee creamer, and cartoons. The big C’s if you will.
I co-host the funniest brunch in DC @mimos_has the first Sunday of every month with my comedy wife Maddy which has opened us up to doing some bomb shit like hosting at the Kennedy Center or performing at Bentzen Ball and even having our show on the Underground Comedy Fest!
I also run the @threesheetsseries, a drunk lecture series for DC charity groups the first Friday of every month with my friend Mike.
Long story short, I miss being funny and getting attention. Hell I’d settle for a bomb at this point.

Hello, everyone! I am @jonathandelpalmer and I’ll be taking over this account today. I’m a dancer, actor, writer, photographer (you can catch those shots at @thedancinglens if you’d like), and I also teach dance and acting now! I moved to DC about 8 years ago from my hometown of Houston, Texas. Quarantine has been a really weird time to explore what it is to live in a place like DC, but I’m excited to explore what that means with y’all today!

I’d say this quote is relevant right now and something I plan to always keep in mind. Whether it’s praying, attending service, a coffee run with a loved one, a phone call, a walk around your neighborhood, sharing a meal at your favorite restaurant, watching the sunset, or a trip to the bookstore...there are so many beautiful “little things” we often overlook. I think this season we are living through is a gentle but necessary reminder to be present & to cherish the little moments that truly make life so special ⚡️🌸 ✌🏼
