As a Black woman, what do you consider your superpower(s) to be?
As a Black woman, I consider my superpower to be my uncanny ability to edify, encourage and move others naturally. It’s in the presence I carry when I enter a room. How I can be the thermostat, not conforming to the thermometer, if I so choose. A thermometer tells you the temperature in the room. A thermostat regulates the temperature.
Why is it important for women of color to work in leadership roles and decision-making capacities?
I show the importance of this through my national campaign and legacy-building platform called, “She’s A Masterpiece.” It’s an empire built to launch women into their “new woman” through spiritual and personal-development curriculum, financial education resources and mentorship. “She’s A Masterpiece,” helps black women of all ages and stages, master their daily “pieces” while maintaining their “peace.”
