In a new and powerful ad for Nike’s “Unlimited Pursuit” Campaign, Simone Biles, Serena Williams and Gabby Douglas are just a few amazing athletes giving us a behind-the-scenes look at how they slay in real competition every day.
In the press release, Nike also noted that these athletes are those “who push their own limits to embark on an unlimited journey to empower the next generation of athletes.”
This is a motivating speech from 8-year-old Jordin Phipps who became the youngest person to be accepted into the university. She will receive a $10,000 scholarship at the University of North Texas
when she does attend - 10 years from now.
Congratulations to this marvelous Black girl who was awarded the President’s Award for Excellence in Leadership.
19-year-old Kyemah McEntyre developed her own design for her prom dress.
She became extremely popular on Instagram for her courage to express herself. She was invited to present her work in Glamour, Allure, and Vogue magazines as a part of a Dove campaign urging women to embrace their natural beauty.
“I remember growing up and oftentimes comparing myself to women with straighter hair, lighter skin,” she told the New York Times. “I thought, ‘Why aren’t I beautiful in my natural state?’” “I do feel I’ve inspired a lot of women,” she added. “That was actually the point of it all.”
As we all know, Vogue magazine stands against cultural appropriation issue that makes Kyemah McEntyre an ideal interviewer. Aside from her impressive designing chops, McEntyre boasts a gorgeous head of natural curls that have been getting just as much attention as her internet-famous prom dress.
Black women deserve to be seen and deserve to stand their position in the society that doesn’t take us seriously and simply eliminates all women of color.
