What would you like to see more of for and from Black women in media?
The media must portray and share the proper narratives of Black women comprehensively and accurately. Our stories and perspectives are often overlooked, and corporations must acknowledge and include us to increase representation and exploration in various categories. This intentional representation is significant for young people. Black women’s expressions are essential in all media categories, as well as in daily life. We deserve to be seen, heard, understood, and respected within the media’s creative space and in general.
What are you currently working on?
My hunger for writing about my experience, my condition, which is epilepsy, mental health, and wellness; these genres have become comfortable. Still, it feels good to know my experiences have helped individuals in all ways of life.
I want to provide insightful information that many may not be aware of and to be a source of support for those living with this disorder, especially for women and women of color. My goal is to assist those still trying to find their way through the unpredictability of epilepsy.
I recently wrote a piece about the statement, “ You Don’t Look. Are You Sure ?.” This piece was an eye-opener, especially for those who indeed get asked what the assumption of the negative of someone who may be living with a hidden disorder like epilepsy. I’ve also written articles that circle around the challenges and small solutions when teaching those living with any illness and the social experience that may have come with it.
As well as other topics and challenges like the entertainment industry and social interactions, which are often overlooked.
What keeps you motivated to continue your career path?
What keeps me motivated is the ability to write about my everyday life and turn it into a story that will start a conversation of all categories. Whatever piece I write, someone may have the same experience or at least the same thought and understanding.
What advice would you have for aspiring media professionals?
It’s essential to take the time to reflect and ensure that your communication style is true to yourself. I’m also working on this and encourage you to do the same.
Authenticity is everything, and no one can be you.
