"Every month is black history month to me really. But I guess that comes with being black. I think it's a great opportunity to shine the light on certain things within the media. For me the fact that I am part of the 0.1% of black female CEOs in this Country is a reality I live daily. There are struggles that are not turned off and on by the month. Things that my Irish Mom in the same role would not have experienced. Life is about the journey not the destination. The dream is the chase. You absolutely must appreciate every step of your process." โ€” @aurorajames of @brothervellies, an accessories brand that believes in maintaining the spirit and durability of their ancestral counterparts and creating sustainable artisanal jobs within Africa.
