I work for a nonprofit organization focused on aging services (#ageismsucks).
I'm a content creator in the menopause space. I founded www.menomademodern.com to address the gap in information and resources for women of color managing the various stages of menopause. I'm currently perimenopausal myself and first began experiencing symptoms when I was 43.
Being Black, American and a woman, I'd definitely project forward...thinking the era of Capt. Michael Burnham and Star Trek Discovery.
Making menopause better for women of color...oh, and season 2 of Bridgerton.
The cost of tuition at JMU in Harrisonburg, VA...it's college tour season in my household.
We (I, really) got a Frenchie pup during the pandemic and it's been a crazy kind of love ever since. I didn't know I had the capacity to love a non-human so much.
Octavia Butler is among my favorite authors. When I was growing up, there weren't many Black women sci-fi writers (and still aren't enough) centering their storytelling around Black female characters. I'm a big sci-fi fan and her stories had a pretty big impact on me in my formative years.
