"Who are you? Usually when women are asked this question, we define ourselves by our roles in our families, our jobs, education, relationship status and other external identifiers. These things are all pieces of you. Think about who you are at your core, in your spirit. Who were you created to be? Refer to Maya Angelou's Poem: Phenomenal Woman if you need inspiration.
Historically, the societal expectation of Black women and girls have been that we are subhuman. This ideology has been framed in the narrative that we are strong, stronger than any man or beast that walks the earth: therefore, we don’t need to be protected, loved, cherished, respected, supported, understood, treated with kindness, empathy and love from others. This disparaging belief has forced many of us to ignore our pain, adopt the societal norm and push through it all. We are so much more than our strength." Yushima Cherry Burks
