I do plan on having one legacy after another as I navigate through this stage of woman hood. Im looking forward to the challenges I will overcome on this new journey, challenges will only help me to continue to grow. When I think of all the possibilities that we as African American women have, and we can do these things being our genuine selves, I just get so excited. This makes me more excited for my daughter’s future as an you African American girl, young adult to her woman hood. Thanks
