Seeing professional women of color was both overwhelming and relieving at the same time. I’ll be honest; initially coming to the institute I expected to be surrounded by older white men in suits. Instead, to my surprise, the staff was mainly made up of young, beautiful women in all shades of brown, with full lips and natural hair, tattoos and some wore stilettoes. Many of them are still in their twenties and early thirties but are already commanding the industry, at the top of their game. I loved their authenticity. They exuded an unashamed confidence that was an inspiration to us as we listened intently to what they had to say.

…Because who else can drop a surprise album with 14 songs, 17 videos and 32 pieces of fabulousness at 12am and keep the entire world up at night listening to them? This is an ode to the woman who Runs the World by making us Crazy in Love with her even If [she] Were a Boy. We’d put a ring on you any day, Beyzus. We hope you keep strutting, strolling and uh-oh-booty-popping through our hearts for decades to come. Thank you for the early Christmas gift, Bey.
