Single Mother of 4 expresses what BLACKTOPIA means to Her

I'm a 41 year old single mother of 4 children. I come from a mixed 

background and grew up very differently. 

I'm from New York but live in NC now. It's a struggle having a career 

in the South. Being a woman is always hard but 

when you add being a minority to it, things can be a challenge. 

I appreciate Blacktopia and what it represents. It's gives people a 

place to express themselves whether it be good, bad or 

sad. It opens opportunity to hear what others have been 

through or are going through. People need to listen. Sometimes 

it's the smallest things that provide insight into our own lives.

I give back daily in my career and I try to help whenever 

I can in my own community to empower others to make the 

choice to take a chance on change. - Angelica Maas
