Are you doing the pull-up challenge? No prizes; it's about making a point to the New York Times about a story it ran which said women can't do pull-ups like men. Nissa Lai makes it even harder for herself by doing them on the rings!
All I got is an axe to practice with. Isn't exactly the easiest weight distribution to balance 😂
It's taken till quite recently to realise I don't identify with my western counterparts on a physical level. I'm short, slim, straight up and down with a muscular physique and mixed features. Physically I look like none of my white, western family and was reminded so as a child, yet am also reminded daily by how white I look. Being mixed is a strange thing, because you are never one or the other, but all simultaneously, and I have to remind myself of that constantly, particularly having little to no access to my culture and family through death and disconnection.
Self identity is a long journey to process and a strange thing a lot of people aren't taught enough about at a young age.
