We asked De Ama Battle, when do you feel like a Princess?

The last time I felt like a Princess was at age 16 and participated in the Debutants’ Ball, an event for the coming of age and entering society for young ladies of color. It was a wonderful time of uplifting recognition and support received from our family and Elders. It was the first time I wore a full-length gown.

My message to the little Princesses of color is: you are the future of this world and must follow your dreams and hopes to be what you want to be to make this world a better place to live in.

xx De Ama
