I finally caught up and watched Black Girls Rock 2011. Tatyana Ali was given the Young, Gifted & Black honour and below is her acceptance speech. She reads out a letter that she wrote to her younger self.
These are words of truth, wisdom and encouragement.
Here Tatyana Ali Acceptance Speech here – if the video below is a no-show.
My addition to this great advice would be:
Love yourself – even if you think there are many who don’t, don’t be one them.
I’m a black girl and I rock!
Is there anything similar to Black Girls Rock in your community or country? If no, why don’t you start something? And what advice would you add to hers to give to your younger self?
