This program has radically enhanced the way I view my strengths and many facets of my leadership. I am not just an expert at what I am currently paid to do but an expert at being a Black woman in America, and expert at my authentic experience, and an expert in civil rights, justice, politics and more. This fellowship has seeded within me the courage to take risks and to trade the personal comfort of silence for the meaningfulness of being consequential. I will continue to speak in power and truth. There’s no stopping me now!
