Plight of the Gen-Z Black Girl
Did you know that black girls are the most at-risk group of Gen-Zers?
1. Gen-Z black girls were born between 1997-2012.
2. Black girls are seen as less innocent and more adult-like than their white peers. (Adultification)
3. School discipline rates for black girls are disproportionate.
4. Negative stereotypes such as being angry and hypersexualized are attached to black girls.
5. Suicide rates have increased since the pandemic began.
6. Unconscious bias can deter black girls from exploring technology even before considering it a career.
About My Approach
How I Can Help
Since 2020, I've been helping Gen Z black girls connect to something bigger than themselves. I coach them on a journey to find their sense of wholeness. Often there are limited self-help resources for black girls. As a result, I teach them self-improvement by providing coping skills that provide personal empowerment and self-love.
I support black girls by giving them the confidence they require to navigate their lives better. I use affirmations and journaling which aid them in finding a solution to their problem themselves. Visioning exercises are used to increase confidence and character.
Additionally, I incorporate guided meditation to support my clients.
