#iamablackhero in New York City

Today, 7 beauties like this are travelling to New York City! The destination of these notebooks is the  NYC subway, where everyone can read the lines that I´ve written, and contribute to this project with their words. #iamablackhero expands! I just hope that at least one notebook will return to me (please please please).

Good luck, beauties! enjoy your stay! and find friends there!

See you soon.

Miriam.
