WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK

My daughter asked, "Mom, what are you going to do if you get COVID-19?"

Hesitantly, I reponded, "Your Uncle Marlin will take care of you and I will stay in a hotel for two weeks to quarantine."

On the same night, we watched the musical "Hamilton" and it said we do not decide who lives, dies, and tells our stories.

I decided to write my story.

It started as a collection of journal entries that I want my daughter to know about me if something happens to me. After reviewing the journal, I decided that it may inspire and help other young adults who are interested in pursuing higher education.

Growing up, I was the “quiet girl” because I did not know my worth. Making myself small and silent seemed to cause less friction. Not using my voice allowed others to define me. Pleasing others became natural for me and I would go out of my way to protect the feelings of others while jeopardizing my own.

Articulate reveals my path of navigating blindly through higher education to earn my master’s degree. My journey through college empowered me to launch my own business. Now, I use my voice to mentor and train professionals throughout the U.S. I believe women and first-generation college students will find this book most beneficial.

Articulate candidly addresses racism, religious beliefs, domestic violence, fornication, pursuing higher education, and interracial dating. Regardless of race, this book is an important addition to explore the realities of Black women.
