As a black woman, I understand that I carry my ancestors with me where ever I go.
I understand that there will be many moments in my life where I will be the only representative of my race in a room.
Because of this I vow to always bring the best of my blackness with me whenever I step into a room.
I will love and adore the tint of my skin and the kinks in my hair even when the world advises me not to.
I will celebrate black history month every day of my life.
As a black woman, I will support and cherish my fellow black women and, perhaps someday, I will raise strong black women of my own.
I will wake up every morning thanking God for the skin He put me in.
Because if I had a choice, I’d always choose to remain living my life as a black woman.
