She tells the publication that she is proud of representing black women in places where they seem invincible. She also adds that black women should understand that the dream job might not be the first opportunity.
I’m also proud of representing Black women in spaces where people don’t usually see them.
Do your research and respect the process—that’s true for any business you’re looking to go into. The dream job isn’t going to be the first opportunity. You have to be knowledgeable, competitive and prepared to showcase your craft. This means building your portfolio and résumé through internships, continuing education, conferences and books.
