I am a total fangirl for Issa Rae from 'Awkward Black Girl' to 'Insecure' to 'The Photograph' to 'a Sip' and 'Issa Rae Presents'. Everything she does is like goals.
Representation truly matters growing up I was exposed to Doctors, Lawers, Deans, Educators, and so many other professions. All women of color who looked like me. That exposure afforded me the really that I can be and do whatever I wanted.
The nineties had so many tv shows that also depicted dope black people. Then it seemed like overnight all of that representation went away. Yet, Issa Rae has created a new wave of representation both with online content and TV in front and behind the camera. Not to mention her stint as a Cover Girl.
Every time I come across photoshoot or article that features Issa Rae I take the time to read. Because yeas I am that big of a fan. She is such a tangible inspiration. I just wanted to take a moment to show love to one of my favorite celebrities.
Her beauty and talent speak for itself. Most of course importantly Issa Rae's headwrap game is so on point. I hope to get her Wrapped By A.C.T. one day in the near future.
