A Picture Says a Thousand Words

This post is definitely one of my shorter ones but only because I feel the visual attached to it speaks for itself. I was honoured when I was approached last year by Central New York Woman Online Magazine for a feature, and then doubly honoured and humbled when I was told that I would be the face on the cover of its Dec/Jan 2020 edition! I spoke more about this experience in a previous blog post. Anyway, I recently happened to come across my magazine amongst other magazine covers online and although it was wonderful to see, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that I am the only black woman in the below photo. I thank Central New York Woman Online Magazine for being inclusive and I hope that other magazines continue to do the same, especially as 2020 has put a spotlight on the issue of race relations on a whole.

I celebrate this win however, I mainly celebrate it for little girls who look like me, yearning to see more of themselves in print and television!
