Be Ready Beautiful

Creative Genius
A series by HGTV & DIY Networks
Artist Ndubisi Okoye's murals reflect who he is and where he's going.
Be Ready Beautiful is a piece that is essentially an ode to youth and warning to my niece Dominique. I want her to enjoy her youth but also be aware and ready for everything that is coming in her teenage and adult years to come. The culture has a lot to say about Black women and how they should look, how they should be, 
and how they should act. I want this piece to remind her that she doesn't have live by that. She can be different and still worthy of love.
Producer/Cinematographer: Francisco Aliwalas
