10 Things I’m Proud Of After Listening To Black Girl Pod.

00

At 27 it’s never been a time in my life that I wasn’t proud to be black. I grew up being the youngest of my 5 sisters. I also have huge role models in my life that have inspired me for a long time. With my twin & I only being 27 and our older sister being in their mid-30s & 40s there is a huge gap that creates a different mindset on how you view life, your career, love and much more plus I’m considered a millennial.

I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life after going away to college for a year and wasting my mother’s money, and feeling like school was an obligation to be successful. I was the daughter who wanted to do everything that wasn’t normal. 9 to 5 jobs growing up was something that I could never see myself doing. My mom had me in dance class at 3 years old, and I didn’t stop dancing until a year after college. I believe because I was in such a creative space for so long anything that was non-creative or had people around me who were used to this structured lifestyle wasn’t for me and my actions and attitude showed it.

By the time I was 22 I was an artist assistant and by 23 I was a part of an all women media team called Domineer Media Group as their social media manager. I was so proud of what we were doing and the feedback we were getting as an all women company that consist of 3 black women and one latina.

In 2015 we closed the Domineer Media chapter and I never felt so lost in my life. I didn’t know what to do because I spent all my time and energy on this company because I believed it was going to go far and help all of us to quit our jobs and become the business owners to an all women company. Luckily that same year Gia Peppers blessed me by letting me do social media for BlameEbro.Com.

With Domineer Media gone and still having this Ebro gig, I still felt like I wasn’t doing enough. With time passing by I started interviewing the artist for BlameEbro.com and covering Hot 97’s Whos Next Live.

But still, that was not enough for me.

Now that I just turned 27, I’m still not 100% satisfied with everything that I’m doing. I write for a few publications, I manage content on DazeSummit.Com, I still do social media for BlameEbro.com, and I throw networking events for people called “Who Did You Meet”?

But guess what? That’s still not enough.

I started listening to Black Girl Podcast because of Gia Peppers who I’ve met through my good friend Avery who I use to work with. She also is my go to person for BlameEbro.Com and a person who was willing to help and guide me with a few issues that I always struggled with.

This morning listening to the 6 episode It made me realize that I’m not the only black girl who struggles and think shit is just not enough and that’s ok.

Below you will read  the top 10 things I learned listening to Black Girl Podcast:

1. It’s Ok to want more for yourself even when you’re doing a lot. 

2. Being fired from your job can be a blessing in disguise. 

3. Being proud of yourself isn’t bragging. 

4. Everyone in the industry struggles and that shit is fucking hard.

5. All black women need to stick together, support each other and start some type of conversation.

6. There is a balance between being humble and knowing what you’re worth.

7.  It’s never too late to start anything.

8. There will be moments where you feel stuck. Know those moments will eventually past.

9. You need real women/friends around you.

10 BLACK GIRL MAGIC Is So real and it’s taking over and will continue to do so. 

Thank you, Gia Peppers, Alysha P, Sapphira, Bex, & Scottie Beam. You are & will continue to bring inspiration to black women all over.
