While I was in NYC, I dined at a very intimate and small restaurant, so I could only help but overhear a convo between two women of color (different races than I, but both WOC) and they were sharing how they wanted their industry to be more inclusive, open and friendly to more races. They went on to talk about the struggles they experience trying to go the top. Fast forward...they kept looking at our table funny...then I got up from my seat and politely said, “excuse me ladies, I don’t want to bump into you” (being that this restaurant was TINY with only 6 tables in the entire place...no kidding). They both looked at me in disgust and looked at me up and down for no reason as if I didn’t belong in this place with them. It was crazy to have these same women talking about uplifting WOC and then snub me for no reason at all. It reminded me that not only women of color but just women in general should be nice and uplifting of one other. We don’t have to be best friends, but we all should be NICE! You have to realize that there is enough room for all of us to win in life!
Which brings me to why I love @mrsadriennebosh
sooo much. She is always so supportive of other women. She never looked down on me or snubbed me, but only supported, and I appreciate her for that! She is definitely one to follow. So ladies, learn to spread the love and be kind. Of course you don’t have to be close to everyone or promote everyone, but you should always have in your heart to congratulate, uplift and cheer on other women you see. It’s the right thing and it’ll make life so much more beautiful 💕 Tag a women who is supportive! #womensupportwomen #styleandtravelgirl #girlboss #millenialentrepreneur #qotd
