Quotes from Amani
“In my work we are all black female leaders, in high positions, so just going to work and seeing the amount of women surrounding me is empowering itself.”
"Just hearing other women stories, and what they’ve gone through in their personal lives and even in their professional lives, is very humbling. I like hearing their wisdom."
“If you wanna stay stagnant in your role, how could you be mad at somebody that is pursuing to be better, all because you want to be comfortable and don’t want to push yourself to grow?”
