Glad you are here! The overall theme of this blog is the professional empowerment of young African American Women in higher education and corporate America. Come here to find real experiences on internships, , nervous interviews, sexual harassment, supportive-ish boyfriends, your mothers expectations, entrepreneurship, how to get yourmale peers to respect you, raunchy office attire and ultimately how to 'Lean In' as a African- American Woman.
My inspiration for this blog are black girls everywhere that sit on the sidelines, hesitant to go after what she wants.
What differentiates my blog from others is my point of view. I am young black & gifted. My parents are not STEM field professionals. I have had several corporate internships & a lot of professional exposure in college. I am not perfect by any measure, however, you're more likely to get a honest & relatable account for me.
Every women has a different experience & opinions, this is mine.
Now what does it mean to 'Lean In as Women of Color'? I'll take a page from Daria Burke, CEO and founder of Black MBA Women to start us off.
