Our story. The women’s experience often goes unnoticed until victory has been claimed. The purpose of HER experience is to highlight the experience of a diverse group of women in different walks of life. This piece of writing will debut HER story in a very real, raw and unapologetic fashion. I was inspired to do this series of writing because of the stories I’ve shared with those around me. I became anxious to explore the mind of the woman, the heart of a woman and the healing of the modern woman.
“She was powerful, not because she wasn’t scared but because she went on so strongly despite the fear.”- Atticus
Interviewing these women was not only inspiriting but enlightening. Understanding that the same situations that I found myself in as a woman can be shared with women across the nation, across the world. HER experience will be a series of writing that will allow different women to share their stories of the woman’s experience on topics that range from domestic violence, women in the workplace, entrepreneurship etc. All the topics we will discuss will be an open dialogue of the interviewee and a commentary written by me. My goal is to bridge the gap of sisterhood by creating a platform for women to share these very real and challenging stories and connect with one another through storytelling and healing.
I invite my queens from all walks of life to tune it this series and show your support for these very brave women. I am proud of this piece or work because I have an opportunity to share my own story with these women and give them an opportunity to dig deep into themselves because THEY matter. For that moment, these women are listened to, comforted and able to share freely without judgement and fear.
To the ladies who have helped with this project, my heart is forever grateful and indebted to you for being vulnerable and honest. Each one of you shared something special with me and I THANK YOU. I encourage you to continue talking, continue sharing and continue healing, our mission to sisterhood needs it.
