My name is Leila Ndebi. I am currently a sophomore at Pennsylvania State University. I started this blog my freshman year of college, as an assignment in a English class. Quickly I realized that this was not only something that I enjoyed doing, but something I needed to do. Writing about not only the frustrations that black women deal with everyday, but my own personal struggles, worked as a therapy for me. Whenever I felt frustrated or felt like I had something to get off of my chest, I opened up my laptop and typed it out.
I started this blog because I think that we need more outlets for black women. We need more blogs, television shows, magazines catered to black women. We never get anything to ourselves. So this one is for ya’ll.
