"Culture + Belief" - Emilia

"Culture + Belief" - Emilia

1) My favorite thing about being a black woman is being an African woman. Being black is not just about color, but where I'm from how I carry myself; my culture, my belief, and the way I live my life. My favorite thing about being a black woman is being able to stand strong, confident and know that I can do things beyond my imagination... It's definitely a privilege given to me by God to be Black.
2) To put the icing on the cake, as an Igbo woman, my favorite thing is having a culture that I can proudly say I am from, and having a language that I can speak proudly with my associates. Being an Igbo woman means strength. I've heard people say Igbo women are strong and take care of family - having that in my blood is a privilege.
