As a black female, I know that there are certain hurdles and obstacles in this world that only a black woman will face.
These will attempt to hinder my growth and progress, however, I believe I am the only person truly in control of my destiny.
Being aware of the struggles black women face in ALL industries, in the judicial system, in healthcare and even in our own communities is important. However, I chose to put it to the back of my mind, acknowledging it too much gives "them" too much power. I have faith that God has ALREADY given me all the provision needed to fulfil my purpose on this earth ordained to me before I was even born. I want all black girls and women to focus on the many black women who have and continue to overcome every day.
We are a fence for each other, we pave ways for each other. Every black engineer, every black lecturer, every black barrister, every black single mom working around the clock to provide for her child, we are all important and magical.
