This Woman Teaching Her Niece To Be Confident Is The Absolute Best Thing You Will See Today

It's the excitement while sis was modeling for me!

Culture & Entertainment

If you're a frequent reader of my articles, then you know I love any and everything in this world that pushes the culture forward. Intentional progression for myself, and my grandchildren's grandchildren, is my love language, and if you're on board with this—especially in these times—then we're absolutely best friends in my head.

Thankfully, with my job, I come across some of the most amazingly wholesome, and mindful content that the world will ever see, making my little heart flutter—mostly because we need to be encouraged in a different way that not many others outside the diaspora can relate to.

So, when I came across a video from Nikisa Edwards, a southern-based photographer on Tik Tok, I got all my life.

Set to an edited TikTok version of "Walk" by Saucy Santana (sans profanity, of course), the hilarious video, captioned, “She will be confident. #brownskingirl #confidentgirls”, shows Edwards speaking life into her niece, and then it transitioned to her showing her in true glow-up form, strutting fiercely, while draped in full confidence. I mean, you literally could not tell sis that she was not on somebody's runway, m'kay!?

I mean, the pose and mini-smize at the end?! C'mon!

The best part: Edwards cheering baby girl on, full energy, and making sure she knew that she was beautiful. Like my heart couldn't take it.

And apparently, the rest of the world felt the same:

Some were here for the SERVE:

Others appreciated its wholesomeness:

But mostly, everyone else’s hearts were fluttering too:

Edwards and her niece are taking it all in and enjoying the wave for now. And they're certainly helping so many other little black and brown girls who need to know that they are beautiful, smart, and special, know that they actually are. And not only knowing those things about themselves, but truly understanding that they can be confident about being them too.

And the sheer magnitude of what this mentality shift means for the culture, helps me sleep better at night.

*grabs purse* "Now let me see you walk, walk, walk, walk...."
