How She Revels: Kamili Wilson

I'm a content creator in the menopause space.

I'm a content creator in the menopause space.

 Age: 48

Location: Arlington, VA

What do you do for work?

I work for a nonprofit organization focused on aging services (#ageismsucks).
 

Do you also have a side hustle?

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.

If you could time travel, where would you go and why?

Being Black, American and a woman, I'd definitely project forward...thinking the era of Capt. Michael Burnham and Star Trek Discovery
 

What’s your current obsession?

Making menopause better for women of color...oh, and season 2 of Bridgerton

Last Google search?

The cost of tuition at JMU in Harrisonburg, VA...it's college tour season in my household.

What’s the best thing that’s happened to you recently?

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. 

Favorite author, and why?

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.
