I think of all of the young women I mentor and I don’t see color or Black or White but deep inside I always think of Kiara and my experience at Mercer. Kiara is one of my mentees. I remember my experience at Mercer and when they see me they know that I’m the Mentor not a current student and I’m Ayesha. I always remember that they mix Kiara and me up but when Kiara did the logo last semester for our group I thought she did such a cool job. I remember her saying something to me acknowledging me one time. I know as women depending on the race we can sometimes have issues with each other but women are all beautiful and powerful! We just need to empower each other.
Women can be supportive of each other.
