As a black woman do you feel like you are a part of the women's movement happening today?
“I believe black women today are defining our own movement. While many of our issues are aligned with the global women's movement, we've always faced varied degrees of exclusion and isolation when women's issues have benefited white women at our expense. Today, we're harnessing our own data, developing our own companies and organization, and charging forth to declare agency over our own bodies, communities, and economic mobility. We are the most educated population in America and will continue to define the success of our households. I think the world is still catching up.”
What does self-care mean to you?
“Self-care is both mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical for me. It means making heading to the gym a priority or at least getting in a long run when I can. It means drinking plently of water, taking whole-food based vitamins, treating myself to a glass of wine at a chic wine bar, or laying on the sofa in a charcoal mud musk whilst watching West World.”
Your voice has power. How do you use it now and plan to in the future?
“The role of a journalist is to be a storyteller for the people. I use my platforms and the totality of my work to provide a depth of field of the work of black and brown people build the future of technology, innovation, and shaping their communities.”
