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.
