What were some positives and negatives that you remember growing up as a young black girl ?
The positive things I have learned growing up was being able to be me as to being me my mom didn’t force me to play with other cause she knew I was really shy and she let me stay inside for the most part cause I so little with me been born early I enjoyed being around my siblings and my cousins and riding my bike and journaling i started writing really young that’s was my way of working through my emotions. The negative part of growing up was really you because me and my twin sister was small that others will pick fun of us cause we so small I didn’t like that growing because your size should determine who you are has a person I got bullied in middle cause of that.
What's one thing you know now that you wish you would have known when you were younger?
The things I know now I wish knew back than that it’s okay to speak up for yourself and that it’s okay that you are different we weren’t born to be all alike and not to let anyone take advantage of you and God has given me Voice for a reason if I can change now and apply to then a lot of things will be different.
How do you think society and our community views black girls and why?
I personally feel as though the society and community doesn’t view us equally because of our color even our own color doesn’t treat us right we have to fight daily for our rights us as woman has to work hard daily to walk in our Devine calling that Jesus Himself has placed within us we many hats in this world and yet the people still still treat us poorly.
