With full confidence, no one that I work with fully knows me like they think they do. Walking into my job on day one I knew that it was up to me to set the tone. I am conditioned to think that no matter what I have to represent my entire race in every action or word I utter.
The moment it hit me that I was still on display came when I thought I was safe. Working in a corporation has always been a struggle for the melanated queen however in 2020 it has leveled up.
