“No offense they assume I’m white. I walk into a room and I would be like ‘yup its the black girl’. It was at a point where I used to apologize for it, I used to sit at the end of the table, I used to be quiet, and NO! I’m going to sit right in the middle I’m going to have my opinion, I’m going to engage in the conversation because I have a right to be here just like the next person. It definitely took me a while to realize that”.
“There are always going to be your male counterparts who just feel like, ‘why am I listening to this woman?’, you can have all the greatest ideas, I go through this with all the different companies that I work with. you can have some of the greatest ideas but they don’t want to give you the credit. After a while, I’m like, I am not doing this for credit. I got my paycheck, I know I’m smarter than you. At the this point I don’t really need your praise. My work speaks for itself, and you cant deny it. When you get to a point where they cant deny your work it doesn’t what they feel about you personally.”
