For the past 5 years this was my motto. I would not advise it at all! I would think, there is no need for me to get know anyone, this is only temporary. Yes, I do plan on venturing out to other cities, but not having a social life and experiencing what a new city…

What It Means to Be A Mother of Color

As black women, we have many roles that we play, but one of the most rewarding and important titles we hold is—mom. As mothers of color, we are responsible for instilling culture, morals, identity and pride in our children for them to conquer the world with great confidence. While embedding this confidence in our seeds, we are also responsible for warning them of how the world may view and label them, but ensure that being themselves is good enough. Mothers of colors—we salute and celebrate you! Here’s what some of…

This is pretty common, and quarter-life crisis is becoming more common every day!…
