To know you was to know love without conditions, strength inspired by each other, to find happiness even in the darkest days, and dedication even when the end is not in sight. To know you, was my biggest blessing. In these last two years, it hasn’t gotten easier but I can feel you lifting me everyday. Thank you for setting the standard in my life of what I should expect from a man and what I should expect from myself. I miss our talks in your room as you sat on your chair but I know that every time now when I speak to you, you’re sitting on the stars, listening. And every time I look up at the sky, I know you’re still here. Until we meet again. I love you, Dada. 🤍

Nike x Uninterrupted: Until We All Win - Serena Williams x Ingrid Silva x Alex Thomas Director: Kajal Production Team: @tahirajalees @westcoastjones @whitneymari_ @19thpark @allday DP Wife: @tehillahdecastro My Agent Mama: @msjtyson Clients: @nike @uninterrupted ❣️ True purpose is not only fulfilled through individual hard work and extreme dedication, but a tribe of humans that believe in that purpose for & with you. I can say with the most confidence, that I had nothing left to give after we were finished with these - we stayed up later than the rest of the world and woke up before the sun herself. I anticipated speaking to a table full of strangers at our first conference meeting at the NIKE HQ in Portland, but what I was met with was familiarity and comfort from the kind faces of @ayeshadesu, @missharmony, @thatsgortiz, @your_mexcellence, @mrmilesjohnson, @hey.maya, @anthonycoleman and so many more of y’all. Despite meeting for the first time, there was one common thread that connected us all: we wanted to tell the stories of these athletes making black history. And so, we did. Thank you to Serena Williams, Ingrid Silva, and Alex Thomas for sharing their stories. Thank you to my @nike family, my homies at @uninterrupted, the team at @allday and my tribe at @19thpark. Thank you to each last one of you for allowing me to earn my seat at the table.

You were always larger than life and that has been validated even further in this last year since you’ve been gone. What a blessing to have a man like you in my life, who not only bent over backwards to provide for me in his lifetime, but who’s been protecting me in his next. I have felt you everyday since I last saw you. No matter how much time has passed, it doesnt get easier but your spirit and your memory have given me my greatest purpose in this life. What a blessing to have experienced you. To have loved you. To have been loved by you. What a blessing to have you as my dada 💛

Last year was incredibly hard, more people passed away in the last few months than in my whole life. The hardest loss has been my dada. In my grief, to honor them and all those that have come and gone in my life, I got a tattoo that reads, “protected by angels”. In the hardest times, it serves as a reminder that even though they’re not with me, they’re still watching over me. In these last few months, i realized that my angels are not only in the world after but in this world too. I have so many angels protecting me in the form of friends and family and mentors and teachers. The way all of them have showed up, to make sure I’m good and living and eating. Y’all are love. Blessed to know my angels are all around. 👼🏽

I thank the universe for letting me see snow covered mountains, glaciers (that haven’t melted yet completely from global warming 🤒), the black sandy beaches that literally felt as if I was facing towards heaven, swimming in the blue lagoon (that at times did smell like eggs), and a travel buddy like @vibesaisha that adventures with me. Experiences like this really remind you how small you are in the world yet the possibilities of how big you can be. Iceland, you were ice ice cold baby. Thank you for having me. 🌬❄️

I am a first generation kid, a child of immigrants, a grand baby to a Ba who raised other people’s kids by day and was a seamstress by night, to a Dada who sacrificed his dreams and returned to his village in hopes of providing for his future family. When i tell you i wasn’t supposed to be here, i was NEVER meant to be here. // Recently, my mother asked me, “why do you do this to yourself? We gave you an education, access to a college degree. I wanted you to be a doctor or engineer so you would live a life without worry. Not struggle how we struggled. This is not what I wanted you to be.” (Little did she know, i sucked at science - got a C in organic chemistry 🥴). But on some real, she will never understand, and i know her brain is wired not to. I know though, my people struggled and in my own right, i have to too. My people also do not fail, and so I have no option but to succeed. In my wildest dreams, I didn’t believe i would be someone’s director, that I’d even step on a set. Films were meant to be seen on Friday evening tv in the forms of Sholay and K3G not CREATED by someone like me. In my lifetime, I promised to honor my grandfather’s legacy. One day, I want my niece to look at me and believe that her little brown self can be whoever she wants to be. I was meant to be here and wherever she chooses, so will she. & that will be my legacy.

Sometimes I’m “ya, we not doing this” Kajal 🌶 because you don’t always gotta shine rainbows outta your butthole or shoot unicorns out ya mouth. I been having this conversation a lot lately with my homies - “Is happiness an illusion or an achieved reality?” And the answer is, I don’t know.. like at all. What i do know is that it’s okay to be not happy all the time, that all these whirlwind of emotions we feel on the daily is just a part of life. So ya, check in on your homies and check in on yourself. It’s okay to be down or act out, but it’s also okay to be happy without reason. Allow yourself to feel, just feel. & lemme know, how are you feeling today?

white fits, better grooves, brighter moods 🕊 lately, it seems like there’s struggle everywhere and within everyone, you don’t have to go looking for it. but reminder to you and myself, there’s good everywhere. there’s blessings in disguise all around.

🦋 i grew up believing i was ugly - resulting in super low confidence and being in abusive relationships. let’s teach our girls that their self worth is not mutually exclusive to their outward appearance. that even tho they may not see it, their beauty is a reflection of what’s inside. it took me this long to realize that my skin is the only home I’ll ever live in

Not a day will go by where I won’t think of you. On every film set, I’ll imagine you were sitting on the director’s chair. On every phone call with Ba, I’ll wish you could answer on the other line. In every moment of solitude, I’ll learn to be more peaceful like you. Today, as we layed you to rest, it started raining heavily. They say that’s good luck, that Heaven opened its doors to you. I hope you made it home safely and peacefully. That you’re reuniting with your family and saving the rest of us some seats. I’ll see you in the next world Dadu. Thank you for teaching me stubbornness, to never settle, to love openly, and live without judgement. Thank you for being the most important man in my life. Thank you for choosing me to be your granddaughter. Thank you for being my Dada. I love you.

18*06 || Only if we’re lucky do we wake up every morning and find a breathless beauty in the same view. We live in a universe where things get old, quickly. What face we once used to stare into in the mirror every morning, we cannot even bare. Who once we used to love, is now not enough so instead we found a new rush in someone else. Where our work becomes repetitive, we indulge in another craft. Where we become so tired of the same thing, we forget why we found it in the first place. We are a generation of unsettling, anxious, “nothing is ever enough” motherfuckers.

18*05 || in high school, the kids thought i was fucking weird. i thought so too. i tried to hide from my weird but the thing is, my 14 years old self didn’t know you couldn’t escape from who you are. so here i am - full ass grown and full ass weird and full ass loving it. well that’s not me, that’s just a dingy hallway what coulda been between classes - but you get it.
