I have been thinking and talking about starting a blog for quite some time and thanks to my fellow #EducatedHoodChicks, I'm finally doing it!! There's nothing like having people in your corner who are willing to listen to you, support your endeavours, and even give you a little (or BIG) push, when you need it!
So what will my blog be about?? Well, I love to talk/converse about politics, culture, social justice issues, Mommy issues, love, and relationships!! You ask me.....I definitely got an opinion!! Hell, I got an opinion even if you don't ask me! However, despite all my opinions, the thing that I am most passionate about (at least at this time) is REDISCOVERING LIFE & PURPOSE. Having recently divorced and moved back to the Bay Area with my children, I have truely felt revitalized! I'm starting life over again, but instead of being discouraged and down about it, I am excited and overwhelmed by the possibilities my 'new life' is presenting!! I'm starting to take stock on my life in certain areas and am poised to make some life changing decisions and moves this year!! And I want to encourage others to do the same.....to take their lemons and make some good ass lemonade!! Sure, I hit roadblocks along the way and question my strength and abilities, but I am FINDING MY WAY and determined to win!!
Being an Educated Hood Chick should not be equated with being 'bourgeois', 'siddity', or 'stuck-up'. An Educated Hood Chick is not a woman who has 'moved on up to the East Side' and doesn't remember where she came from. On the contrary, an Educated Hood Chick is a woman who is confident and comfortable with who she is. She is comfortable operating in different circles, without missing a beat. She's used to being one of few or the only, yet knows her very presence makes all the difference in the world. An Educated Hood Chick is a woman who desires and seeks betterment for herself, her family, and her community. She is willing to use her talents, time, resources, and knowledge to improve herself and those around her. An Educated Hood Chick is down to earth, well rounded, and down for the cause! So get to know us!
