I believe in the mess as much as I believe in the masterpiece. I believe that the journey is the destination. I believe in the beauty found in the process. I believe in the rough patches + the tough conversations. I believe that the transforming is the key to the transformation. I believe the in-between places is where the magic happens.
Hey girl hey! I’m Tyshia. The woman in the journey beyond this blog.
God’s Child. Mama + Wife.
Freelance Creative. Natural Beauty + Wellness Enthusiast.
Girl Boss at Belle Marron.
Urban Education Advocate + Unapologetic Brown Girl.
I think that covers it…for now.
This Brown Queen is a creative outlet I launched back in 2013 that just so happened to change my life. Over the past four years this blog has evolved, it’s given me opportunities I would have never imagined, it’s fell by the wayside as other projects have taken over my life, there was even that time that I had thought I’d outgrown it for good. I guess that’s what happens when you create a blog based off your life. It grows with you.
After taking on many forms, we’re here. A wellness blog dedicated to the women in the journey. A place where I’m sharing my own as a brown mama which means on any given day, that could be anything from my spiritual musings, deep reflective thoughts, natural beauty finds, plant based eats, parenting triumphs (and trials), and everything in between. Essentially, every piece that makes me whole in body, mind, and soul.
Beyond this blog, I have a deep passion for my community. I love my people and I’m dedicated to doing the work. And I understand that sometimes takes on many different forms. In my city, it’s serving as an education advocate. As a freelance creative it’s providing my expertise in in digital media and content creation to black owned or black focused companies. In my beauty business it’s prayferfully creating a company that not only celebrates women of color, but also employs and gives opportunities to people of the diaspora.
