Be the leader. Corazon Aquino was the first female president ever in Asia and she was the commander in chief for the Philippines. In a world that has put an emphasis on “following” may we never forget to lead. Whether it’s your community, work, among friends, be an influence.
Be a Rockstar. No we all might not be the talented Bibi McGill and play on stage with Beyoncé. But she is a testament that women can be rock stars at whatever they do! You owe it to the world to pursue your talents and gifts and to be the very best at it!
Be Unique. We love how Tracee Ellis Ross took what was unique about her, owned it and helps other women with accepting their own beauty. Her site has interviews, beauty tips and much more! How will you use what you have?
Be a barrier breaker. We can sometimes let any little thing stop us. We don’t know the language. We are too short. We are too this and that. Shakira was able to cross over to US music and remains one of the best selling artists of this time. With many accolades and business ventures she is one of the power players in entertainment. It didn’t matter what town she came from or the language that she spoke. Hard work and dedication will get you there no matter the barriers.
We are so thrilled by @issarae new series First. She is the creator of Awkward Black Girl, a writer, producer and all around creator. There has been an influx of brown women behind the camera telling a more diverse story of our experiences and we are loving every minute of it.
