"Allow me to re-introduce myself, my name is Jov." - JAY Z
I hate introductions, but I love meeting new people (go figure). Instead of presenting a traditional introduction, I would prefer to just tell y'all a little about who I am and what I do, and lot about how this all ties into Black Girl Navigates. My name is Josephine Omolola (she/her). I am an over-thinker, a recovering makeup junkie, and a 5-year natural hair chica! I am a student, an educator, and an activist. I stand, firmly, in alliance with the LGBTQIA+ community. I am a womanist with thick skin and even thicker Naija bones. I am truly in the epicenter of navigating through young adulthood. Day by day, I see the ways in which being a woman of color impacts the way in which I navigate a variety of life's difficult (and, at times, scary) situations. I am passionate about ensuring that POC are telling their own stories. For that reason, I am passionate about maintaining Black Girl Navigates. I am passionate about making Black Girl Navigates a space where Black women can grow unapologetically and safely. I believe in sisterhood and that POC are the future. Black Girl Navigates is for my tribe.
