"Don’t be ashamed to showcase your talents clearly and never dim your light for anybody. I find that many women downplay their talents while men overstate theirs and still manage to fail upwards"
"I recently re-discovered that being a creative is in my DNA. Sometimes, role dependent, working in corporate can ‘help’ you forget about the things that get you excited. Storytelling - whether through writing, partnering with dope black creatives for my podcast series, photography, branding - these are the things that tickle me"
“As an executive woman, a lot of young girls will look up to me and aspire to be like me so it is my duty and responsibility to mentor and empower young girls and work side-by-side with other women, not in rivalry or competition but in solidarity and support”
"Writing a novel is all about continuity. If you do not keep pristine cohesiveness throughout your story, you will lose your reader quickly. The details can be endless; memories, names, settings, habits, lies, themes, ages, years, etc. The better you can manage the many details of the story, the more layered and complex you can make your novel, which is a great way to keep your reader engaged"
"Everyone is a work in progress. Achievements don’t add any value to who you are as a person. Your career should not define who you are or your values. Life is a work in progress, sometimes you put in work and you don’t reap the fruit immediately - that’s okay . It’s like cultivating a garden, you have to learn to be patient, resilient and don’t expect the results to come right away"
"Don’t do too many things at the same time. The most successful people/businesses take their time to develop and build one thing before deciding to introduce new features/new products and services etc. Take time to work and develop and build your core focus to the point where its sustainable before you decide do another thing"
“I think the best advice I can give here is to follow your passions. If you know you are a creative and also wish to be creative in your “9-5,” be honest with yourself about that. I think often times, especially depending on where you attend school, there are loads of other pressures steering students into certain career paths or specific companies”
"Being an executive woman means knowing and recognizing your ability to impact others and let them know that they can make it and be successful! It is all about IMPACT"
"Being an executive women means leading and lifting while you climb. If I am not bringing someone up, sharing resources and creating opportunities for another woman, I am not using my gifts and talents well. We all can win!"
“If you are not represented, it is your opportunity to become the representation. The really cool thing about being a founder is that you get to write your own narrative and rules. It is really powerful that as an executive woman, you have the power to change the conversation about black women at work and what it means to be a woman of color in your space”
