Introducing #SHeis: In Celebration of Women's History Month

Women are changing the way things are being done these days. From civil rights, to the family structure, we are taking on active roles in our communities and careers. According to NY Mag's recent article, single women are a force to be reckoned with, as their daily lives continue to change the political landscape. My stance?: whether single or with a significant other, we slay.

In honor of Women's History Month, I sat down with some of my favorite ladies--over sips, light bites and good conversation--to celebrate us, with the hashtag #SHeis. Using my initials, and incorporating my obsession with all things social media, I created this hashtag as a way to spotlight women's strengths and their pursuits. In addition, I saw it as a way to coin this movement of women who are doing dope things, and inspiring others as they create and conquer.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be profiling the women I admire, who are hustling and making history in their own regard. Stay tuned for #SHeis features over the next few weeks.

Cheers,
Shanika
