In April 2017, I co-founded 'Majesty', a digital space for women of color to share stories about their lived experiences. Using an engagement-first strategy, we managed to garner 400 Facebook 'likes' using consistent video launches before publishing volume 1 of our digital magazine. (see below)
Purpose: We want to celebrate our differences and find commonality in them. Being a woman of color is not a monolith. We are individuals. We are complex. Grouping us together is hence a way to portray that we are too diverse to be generalized.
