I am surrounded by powerful black women and I am not intimidated by them. I am thrilled to be able to work along side of women who are convicted, passionate and full of promise.

I joined this team so I can learn and contribute. I am happy to say that my ideas are welcome and my identity is celebrated. I have to admit that we went out dancing the other night, and these women can move! I won’t say who, but one of them mesmerized the entire room with those moves and we had to beat the men off of her…literally.

I can’t dance (not yet anyway), but what I can do, I am pleased to have an opportunity to do here. I am just starting to exercise my writing chops and I am looking forward to all the amazing opportunities that are before me.

This was a leap for me. What would be a leap for you?
