Curator of My Own Story
"If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive." - Audre Lorde
Foozy Does is more than just a lifestyle blog – it's a celebration of the lived experiences and truths of one Black woman, with a focus on self-empowerment and storytelling. As a Black content creator, I strive to showcase the versatility and strength of Black women through various pillars including fashion, beauty, health and wellness, career and finance, self-care, leisure, relationships, and more.
The inspiration for this blog comes from the framework of Black Feminist Thought (BFT) by Patricia Hill Collins, which centers Black women's experiences and highlights the intersectionality of race, gender, and class. This framework resonated with me during my doctoral journey and I realized that it could guide my personal storytelling as well. By centering my own experiences through this lens, I actively resist the societal expectations and oppressions that have long tried to dictate who the Black woman should be.
Through Foozy Does, I hope to empower other Black women to become the storytellers of their own lives and to celebrate the unique experiences that make us who we are. Join me on this journey of self-discovery and self-love as we explore the world and all that it has to offer.
