For this edition of Black Girl, using my favorite social medium, Twitter, I sent out a request for creatives of all kinds to send me examples of their work if they wanted to be interviewed. I thought at most I’d get ten or fifteen submissions from girls in HBCUs in the DMV; however, after a few hours, my DMs were flooded with exceptionally talented young women who do everything from visual design to poetry at schools like Tuskegee and North Carolina A&T, all the way down to the AUC and beyond. And although they varied in creative fields, level of experience, and location, they all shared the same basic goal - to excel at the highest level in their respective endeavors.
The first girl I spoke to was Maya Randolph, a freshman at Clark Atlanta University from Dayton, Ohio with a passion for spoken word.

The holiday season is finally upon us, which means I’ll soon be booking train tickets back home from school.
I’ve always thought of myself to be very self-assured almost to the point where I can’t be easily influenced.
