My goal is to raise awareness on social issues and create a more socially just world where everyone can thrive.

I follow and love Social Justice Authors, bloggers and commentators such as Van Jones, Amanda Seales (IG), Grass Roots Law (FB/IG), She the People (IG), and others. Currently, a tool I am obsessed with is CANVA to build marketing content for my various pages.

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying in your career or business?

A win I am proud of is being invited to speak or sit on panels recently to discuss current social issues, it means that my hard work is paying off and I am being recognized for my skills.

Don't let fear keep you complacent!
