“You’re Really Confident For A Dark Skin Girl”
Unbeknownst to me,
one statement would rule
for nearly ten years.
I still remember every detail of the day in which my self-esteem was questioned based on the color of my skin. It was the summer of my freshman year of college when I first heard, “Wow, you’re really confident for a dark skin girl.” It was within this moment that I unknowingly, began to sabotage opportunities to shine at my greatest potential.
In creating ZonDAmour.com I’m proud to celebrate the phenomenally warm brown, dark, cocoa, chocolate, melinated men and women that have helped to inspire me to live my truth: Yes, I am a beautiful, confident dark skin woman. And it’s not a question, it’s an affirmation.
