I need you to watch this video and then watch it again

This chick? With her madd dance skillz and the ferocity on her face towards the end? Gave me chills! I feel like this whole dance is giving the bird to everyone who ever made her feel “not good enough” throughout her whole life. She’s my new favorite badass. 🙂

Not sure if SFW – nothing bad in it but if you’re concerned, you might want to wait til you get home to watch it.
