In 2010, after urging from her husband, James Brown, MD, Semaj designed Butterfly Building, which was intended to be a personal comprehensive program for her to lose weight. It was complete with a course catalogue, Flight Manual: Declaration of independent Flight, Butterfly Bill of Rights, Veg Allegiance, and Constitution with anti- gravity activities, workshops, vegan cooking classes she taught herself, and more. Semaj explains her motivation: “I was holding a great deal of pain, my daughter had died from a blood disease, and I was yet grieving. I needed to do something, if I was to live. This was my chance at beginning. I would have to be the architect of rebuilding me. I imagined myself free. I imagined myself to be a butterfly.”
