"I’ve been intensely searching to become a board member for an organization whose mission I am closely aligned with. As a black woman, at the center of intersectionality, navigating this space can be difficult, trying, and at times overwhelming. I would love to continue laying bricks for the upcoming generations and work to help cultivate, uplift, and empower young women of color."
