Big Props to Chiara de Blasio

I know this is the time of year when we're supposed to talk about all things merry and bright, but everything isn't merry or bright.  Sometimes we need to talk about what's real.  Especially in the African American community.

Which is why I was so impressed by Chiara de Blasio's candid YouTube interview about her struggles with depression and substance abuse. 

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio's daughter doesn't just have her own personal style, she has a lot of courage.  I hope that her personal story will be the catalyst to open up continued discussion about the challenges facing young people, our young people, today.

We've been keeping secrets for far too long. 

Here's the youtube clip of her interview.  What a strong young woman!


We support you, Chiara!
