Founded in 2018, the goal of the I’m Loving Me Project is to share the stories of 1 million women in order to encourage, inspire, and empower all women. Earlier this year on January 5th I’m Loving Me Project team member LaTasha Monique, founder of Mommy Morebucks, interviewed SoulFire Phoenix Queen, Phoenix Queens of the Nation and Cipher of the Master Teachers founder Benu Xanamara Ma’at for a very honest and open discussion about transformation, rebirth and the importance of advocacy and giving back to others… Click on the link below to check it out!!!
In Greek Mythology, a phoenix is a bird that is born again from its own ashes. Benu Xanamara Ma’at discusses how the bird relates to her and how she helps others in the community be reborn after life takes you down unexpected paths. Please check out her page www.phoenixqueensofthenation.com to stay informed of Benu’s work.
You never know the impact the work you do has on others. You’re just doing the work… doing what you do and then… someone really forces you to take a good look at your Self and makes you see what others see when they look at you. Could have never imagined that Eye would inspire someone in such a manner – Eye am beyond humbled and honored that someone thought that Eye am worthy of such a tribute.

Hip Hop Culture is a reverberation of centuries-long resistance to oppression by Black and Brown people in the Americas. Born in the Bronx from meager beginnings; emerging from the ghetto streets plagued by poverty and violence, Hip Hop is now a medium that empowers people across the globe. However, the Hip Hop Industry and, to some degree, the world of Hip Hop Education are no longer held accountable to the people. This Program seeks to reconnect the most influential parts of Hip Hop with the streets it was born from.

Dear Mother Goddess
Mother Goddess who brought me to this Earth,
Dear, my mother goddess who created me from birth,
Shine your light through me first,
Because without you, the world wouldn’t be everything it’s worth,
Hold me in your arms while I awake to rebirth,
Dear Mother Goddess so beautiful and true,
As I awake I see all Five Elements and within them I see you,
From the blazing flames of fire to the water so blue,
The wind blows forever in spirit as I look at you,
My Mother Goddess so beautiful and true,
Blessed be everything I see all around me,
Blessed be the beauty of nature that surrounds me,
With my hand in yours without you I wouldn’t see,
This pinnacle of good over evil in this world of glee,
Dear Mother Goddess, I love you, blessed be.
