"Over a 40-year career, black women will lose $840,000 because of the wage gap. Create opportunity for yourself. Be your own damn boss and blow your own damn mind."
Yes, I'm an intelligent, creative, forward-thinking woman. Unfortunately the fact that I am a Black woman who possesses these traits makes me less appealing in the professional world.
I'm determined to pave my own path, to create a creative, intuitive, passionate, professional space that reflects my values, allows me to travel whenever I want, and that promotes the building of families and empires and celebrates every ounce of others' accomplishments. But above all, it will honor the Black woman who built that space and who is holding space for every young Black woman after her.
F%#* glass ceilings.
