I have the right to be unapologetic, respectfully speak my mind, be strong, and broken at the same time, so as long as it pushes me to be better.
It is okay to inhale fear, so as long as I exhale positive results.
I should be treated with the utmost respect, while giving the same to my fellow black women.
Every opportunity, good or bad, should be mine because I have the power to dictate my own future.
I should be free from negative judgments and societal norms.
I am me and that is my power.
You are you and this your power.
We stand together and that is our power!
