What are you reading?

I am currently reading Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.

 

What is your favorite website?

My favorite website would have to be YouTube! From makeup tutorials to lifestyle vlogs or comedic recordings when you just need a good laugh, it is on YouTube. You can find virtually anything on there!

 

What is your dream job?

I do not currently have a dream job, but I have been entertaining the thought of utilizing my talents to further the health and beauty sector for people of color, particularly the African-American and Black community. It would be exciting to work for companies that are currently growing, such as The Mane Choice, Carol’s Daughter, or Shea Moisture. It would allow me to create and develop products and services that effectively bring out unique characteristics of those who look like me!

What are you reading?

I am reading Rupi Kaur’s The Sun and Her Flowers.

 

What is your favorite website?

Google because I use it so much. Importantly, in this age of fake news, an organization can curate any content about itself, its products, or its services. Google allows one to check what others are saying about the organization, person, product, or service in question. Of course, one should also remember to check who the third party is, if offering their opinion.

 

What is your dream job?

My dream job is anything that involves solving puzzles. If there is a puzzle, I feel compelled to try and solve it.

What are you reading?

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and The Lean Startup by Eric Ries.

 

What is your favorite website?

For news, I tend to utilize The Washington PostThe Economist, and Reuters. Otherwise LinkedIn and SurveyMonkey are probably my favorites.

 

What is your dream job?

I would like to eventually be in a position where I can articulate and influence firm-level or government policy and create scalable social change. So a dream job in this regard might be VP of inclusive economies and markets at the Ford Foundation or chief administrator at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
