HOW DID YOU IDENTIFY YOUR PASSION AND THE WORK THAT SATISFIED YOU VERSUS WORK THAT JUST PAID THE BILLS?

By following the highest possible thought. Leaning into the thing that brings me the most joy. Surrounding myself with women that think on a higher level & learning from the trials & triumphs. I see a career as a means to an end. If you’re able to have a career that love & feeds your passion you’re double blessed.

FOR YOU PERSONALLY, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FEMINISM AND EMPOWERMENT?

Feminism is focused on empowering women only. Embracing all that women are & represent. Empowerment is not designated to a particular race, sex, religion etc. It encompasses lifting up everyone.

WHO WILL ETERNALLY BE A WOMAN YOU ADMIRE AND RESPECT, AND WHY?

My mother. She’s by far the strongest woman that I know. I’ve seen her raise a family, support a husband for over 30 yrs while accomplishing becoming the first African American female branch president & entrepreneur.

IN LIGHT OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF OUR HASHTAG #WHYITRIBE, WHY DO YOU THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO CELEBRATE WHO WE ALREADY ARE TODAY?

When we’re in school, you usually only learn about the past. Society focuses more on downplaying the female. To have a force that combats that not shows just empowering it can be, but enhances the value of women.

WHY DO YOU THINK WOMEN SHY AWAY FROM CELEBRATING OR PRAISING THEMSELVES SO MUCH?

Society & social standing have engranded status into the female brain. Often times women feel embarrassed or obligated to measure themselves when confronted with an image or ideal. There is room for every woman to win.

HOW DO YOU OVERCOME THE TENDENCY TO DISCREDIT COMPLIMENTS YOU ARE GIVEN?

By understanding that there is space in this world for every type of woman to win.

HOW DOES SOCIETY REINFORCE THE IDEA WE, AS WOMEN, ARE NOT ENOUGH AND HOW CAN WE TAKE THAT POWER BACK?

Everything ever born comes from a woman. Women are the only ones that have that power. This generation highlights women in overly aggressive roles such a Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope & Viola Davis as Annalise Keating. Example that women are able to be strong and stable leaders.

WHY IS THE TRIBE MOVEMENT IMPORTANT?

The Tribe movement brings diversity. It celebrates the uniqueness and multi dimensions of women. This type of energy is so needed. I have high regard for platforms such as The Tribe for understanding the importance of a strong mind & how that directly influences success. Congratulations on continuing the movement.
