Nikole Thomas - I have a PhD in being a black woman. Harvard can’t teach this shit! I was born with it. Life was my university and society served as my professors. Ever since fifth grade, when my mother transferred me to a predominantly white school, I have experienced what it means to be “the only one.” As the only black girl in the entire fifth grade, my sister and I were two out of about five black students total. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I have been a student in predominantly black schools and more diverse schools as well. The one lesson I learned is that lack of diversity and exposure to different experiences breeds ignorance. The unfortunate part of that reality is that I thought it would get better with age, but that has not been the case. Link in the Bio

And this was not the first time something like that happened. When we went car shopping a couple years before that, I was talking to a white salesman and my sister overheard me, but that time she confronted me and said, “Do you always sound like that when you talk to these white people?"

I am an aspiring Business Analyst from Pretoria, South Africa who recently graduated from the University of Pretoria. I got my first "real" job at a market research company a few months prior to graduating. I have been working here for almost a year now and it has been nothing but an emotional rollercoaster. I did a bit of introspection upon realizing this and as of right now, I aspire to do another degree in the next 2 years as well as to move to a different company in line with my field of study.

the first thing they recommend is to save. It's basically the low hanging fruit of adulting but telling someone with bad money habits to “just save some money” is not the best way to help.
For starters, taking the money you have come to depend on and saving it is a hard adjustment. Even if you manage to get some money put away, it almost always gets taken back out before you have amassed anything real. I was one of these people - you get a few hundred bucks stashed finally and one financial hiccup sends you back to the savings account to retrieve your hard-won savings. It's a revolving door but there are a few tips that helped me get some money saved and keep it that I want to share with you.

Link in the Bio. Beauty product companies have recently come under fire for portraying black women in a negative light. The lack of positive representation of black women in the advertising industry raised a major debate on the lack of diversity in the advertising world and also the absence of black women representation on decision-making boards. #YourCorporateBlackGirl
