I created this site as a place to present ideas and opinions in support of black women and girls. I choose to use a pseudonym because I'm not trying to create a personal platform for myself here -- I want this to be a strong informational and motivational resource.

At the same time, I realize that it can be beneficial to young girls and women to know that someone can relate to many of their current experiences. I would also like for young black girls who may be going through a troubling time to feel comfortable enough to reach out for help when it's needed -- whether it's from me or one of my followers. I want this site to become a sort of support system and motivator for black women and girls.

So I'm going to give a few facts about myself here. If you have a similar experience and have a specific question about how to get through it, email me here -- your question might be published on CBL.

Facts About the Classy Black Lady
- I'm a prolific independent writer

- I went to an Ivy League university and have been "the only black girl in the room" for much of my life
- I pledged and joined a sorority

I think that this is a pretty good list of the experiences that many modern black girls and young women may go through. If you have a specific question related to one of these experiences that you're currently facing, I will do my best to address it either via email or in a blog post (you won't be named) at CBL Thrive.
