As I like to say, if I can walk to it, I’ll do it. And if it involves the future, I’m definitely doing it.
This week’s photograph was taken at the House of Herrera (@HouseofHerrera), more specifically CH Carolina Herrera, in Washington, DC USA (of course). It features Consuella Lopez (@ConsuellaLopez) and the management and staff, who hosted a preview of the Fall-Winter 2017 collection, as well as a celebration of our community leaders.
I met Consuella Lopez before she met me – she’s one of the faces of the iconic DC Government Transgender and Gender Identity Respect Campaign launched 5 years ago, and has continued to amass an incredible portfolio of leadership.
Consuella is now a member of the newly established DC Commission on Fashion Arts and Events, which I learned about at the House of Herrera. Like I said, living in the future.
Eventually we got to meet and I have learned so much and grown tremendously as a doctor, a human, a resident of the most inclusive city in the world since then. I wish these experiences on every nurse and doctor, to help them perform their best for all of the people they serve.
I am still learning a ton every day, which is what I hoped would happen when I came here.
Rest of the photos are below, enjoy.
