🎉🔮Guess What Y'all?! TALMBAT is the Future! 🔮🎉
We won!!! Our first award, our first national recognition, our first celebration. 🙌🏿
Hey! How are y’all feeling out there?
I hope that you all are doing well and taking care of yourselves — especially during these times — and finding moments of joy as we enter into the cooler seasons. Remember to breathe, and to be gentle with yourself.
It’s crazy how fast this year has gone by — we’re already halfway through November! The holidays are right around the corner, and we are only a few weeks away from 2024.
🗞️ Remember last newsletter?…
I told you that I had BIG news to share?
Well, it’s official, TALMBAT is Generation Future certified!

🎊🍾 I am deeply honored and filled with gratitude to share with you all that I am a 2023 Generation Future Awardee! Not only does this award recognize my work in activism for the past few years, this means that we will receive $5,000 to go towards building our TALMBAT community!! YAAYYY!!! 🍾🎊
I am so honored to be doing this work with you all, to craft a storytelling space that creates opportunity and community for all of us. Thank you for believing in this vision, for pouring into it, and for being a part of such a special moment — a special era — in time. This is such a huge step for us to design this space together. And to celebrate, it would be amazing to merge our first TALMBAT Co-Creation & Imagination Session with a Generation Future Celebration! Let’s make it a party!
🤝💭 Our 1st TALMBAT Co-Creation & Imagination Celebration —> SIGN UP! 💭🤝
Since we didn’t have many sign-ups on the original session, I’m linking a new one here with some December dates. We can talk about life, stories, creativity, plans for 2024, and decide how we will use our first grant (if you have any ideas, be sure to bring them with you!).
🎉 Make sure you sign up with the times that work best for you so that we can celebrate and create together!
