When I'm not fantasizing about how I will design and build my dream home when I win the lottery, my days are filled with curating real, empowering conversations and sexual wellness workshops for Black women and girls through my organization, KIMBRITIVE; being of service to people living with HIV in Philadelphia (#SocialWorkersRock!) and staying active because health is wealth. I am a forever student of life so I am always in search of new information and opportunities to explore parts of myself and push myself to new heights. I find joy in supporting people to navigate the challenges life throws at them and empowering them to live their best life, on their own terms. I'm an avid lover of all things seasoned and delicious so on the weekends, you can find me brunchin' and munchin' or binge watching the Food Network or HGTV channel.
What are some things about yourself that you're proud of and that we should know about you?
I am proud to be a goal-digger that turns tragedy to triumph. Ever since I was a little girl I knew that my life would center around bringing people together and supporting people and communities in need, but I just didn't know how. In college, I suddenly lost a relative to HIV-related complications and it really turned my world upside down. But through that, I discovered my purpose. Since then, I've hustled to earn three masters degrees in Public Health, Social Work and Human Sexuality Education while being active in sexual health advocacy to empower communities impacted and affected by HIV.
What led you to say "yes" to being a GGH Brand Ambassador?
It's funny how the universe will literally deliver if you simply ask. I remember sitting at home (probably while on my 2nd or 3rd episode of Fixer Upper) saying to myself, I want to be apart of a community of like-minded people who are passionate about helping women find their voice and gain clarity about their purpose. A couple weeks later, I came across a GGH full moon circle event that centered on looking back at 2019 and looking forward to 2020 with clarity. Of course I bought a ticket. At the event I remember being impressed by the intentionality of the activities, feeling in community with a diverse group of women and inspired to dig deep and push through. I knew then and there that I wanted to continue being in spaces like this and help other women feel how I felt.
What's your favorite way to use the GGH cards?
When I catch myself in a rut or stuck, I pick a topic card and 1-2 question cards to help me unpack and process what I'm feeling. Usually the cards are spot on and speak to how I'm feeling and what I'm growing through.
What are you most excited about in terms of using the cards in groups?
I am excited to bring women together to have fun, laugh, make new friends and ultimately, learn from one another.We have the power within us to answer our own questions and create a life that we are deserving of. As a sexual wellness educator, I'm excited to merge the power of having real and open conversations about sexual wellness and the guidance of the card decks.
