Hi! I'm Rashida, mommy to Aiyana.

From the fashion world to motherhood, my life has made a complete 180!  Born and raised in NYC, my life took a dramatic and abrupt turn when I meet the love of my life (at a pool party in Las Vegas).  Fast-forward 3 years, I'm now a suburban mom in souther California.

As a melanated woman, I represent two groups that are generally under represented in main stream culture.  At Melanin Motif, this community is for women, people of color, and more.  As mothers, we are magic and birth humanity.  Here, we will share, learn, and grow together.  I hope to nurture and inspire you to appreciate yourself and this journey.  You are my tribe.  I see you!!
