I was RAISED IN Chester, PA.
Besides way too much homework, my day consists of meetings with TEAM MAC (Making a Change), RISE-Responsibility (Respect, Integrity, Service & Excellence), FUSE, and Big Brother Big Sister. Over the years, the UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT has taught me how to love myself more and how to make myself a better person. And to always stand for what's right, no matter what others think.
I define #FORTHELOVEOFBLACKGIRLS as powerful women; girls who are standing up for our rights and leading by example.
I feel most brave when I'm standing up for what's right. Beautiful when I look at myself, and brilliant when I do what I love. If I could tell black girls one secret, it would be, "love yourself more and more each day and have a mentor in your life. Mentors have such an impact on your life." And if I could change ONE STEREOTYPE about black girls, it would be, "that all girls love pink, and that we're 'hoes' or 'thots'."
My GREATEST INFLUENCE are MY MENTORS.
But my #BlackGirlInspirations are females who are doing something great in the world and trying to impact lives. Right now I'm reading "Chains."
I will use my COVER GIRL PLATFORM to inspire young girls where I come from that you can come from a small city and do BIG things.
And I will use this platform in service to help other girls love themselves and be unique.
