I love bringing a community of women of color together to share their stories and uplift each other. When I was younger, Black girls used to compete. “She’s lighter.” “She’s darker.” “I wish I had looser hair like her.” “I wish I was mixed,” were the comments I was surrounded by as a little girl and it stayed with me all the way through adulthood. Once I learned to love me and the color of my skin, I wanted to help other women of color embrace themselves flaws and all. I want our community to be less about competition and more about support and love for one another.
So I get major inspiration from Wendy and Jessica of Food Heaven Made Easy. This duo makes healthy eating look gorgeous! They are registered dieticians and nutritionists who share their passion for mindful eating through their YouTube community, amazing recipes on their website, and, of course, the ‘gram.
