“Being somebody who has experienced sexism and racism at a young age, I’ve always been passionate about speaking up about racial and gender inequality,” she told TheFeminismProject.com.
“The person who inspired me to create my page is Amandla Stenberg. [The actress’] video about cultural appropriation sparked my interest to create my page. In fact, a screen cap from their video ‘Don’t cash crop my cornrows,’ was my very first post.”
One year later, Nadia has posted 1800 times and that’s gotten her some loyal followers.
“I love when I get messages sent to me, telling me how I’ve helped educate somebody on social inequality, or I’ve helped somebody feel more comfortable about their cultural background, or their physical appearance. I love that my followers contribute a lot to my page. They thank me for teaching them new things but they also teach me new things by contributing to my page and sharing their knowledge and experiences.”
