Ballerific Woman – Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar

– Blogged by @Climb_This_Hill

 

In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race.

 

Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and/or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They’ve put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is #BlackExcellence. These are #BallerificWomen.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of those special individuals is Ms. Issa Rae.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Best known for her hit HBO series, “Insecure,” after making her break with her hit Youtube series, “Awkward Black Girl,” Issa has blessed us with over 20 visual projects, which she either produced, starred in, or wrote.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her YouTube channel has captured over 260,000 subscribers and 20 million views and counting.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Proving not only to be a strong force and inspiration for women in general, Ms. Issa Rae, is a proven example that black women can be bosses too….but we already knew that!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She takes pride in being an actress, writer, director, producer and web series creator. She has earned her college degree in African American studies and has studied at some of the country’s most famed acting academies.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Issa Rae has been featured in Forbes annual, “30 Under 30,” list, Essence Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair, just to name a few.
