For a very long time, no one told African American women that they could fly, so there are very few of them as commercial pilots. This website is for inspiring women to fly. Flying being defined as succeeding. Succeeding defined however you decide. We are simply here to tell you sistergirlfriend, YOU CAN FLY!
Lately I have felt the pressure to conform into someone I am not. I do understand and appreciate the need for rules and regulations. I do not appreciate having to define myself by someone else's idea of integrity, honesty, and dignity. I have a right to my own thoughts, opinions, and desires. I do not have to want what you want. I do not have to eat what you eat. I do not have to go where you go. And quite honestly, most of the time I don't want what you want anyway.
Do you face those struggles? Do you think you should quietly blend in just to earn a paycheck, gain acceptance from a group, or to keep a lover?
If I cannot sleep at night after making a decision, something is wrong.
The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed even strangled, by the voices of other people's expectations.-
