I Am Empowered by Ilyasah Shabazz, Daughter of Malcolm X: On Monday, August 6th 2012, I had the sweet pleasure of meeting Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of a man I have much respect for, the famous Malcolm X. I have followed her career for years. She is a born fighter and didn’t let the loss of her father bring her down. She turned the tables around and has made a name for herself and carries the legacy of her family well.
We talked for a few mintues and it was one of the most interesting conversations I have ever had. We posed for some media pictures and parted ways.
She was pleasent with the media and with her peers. She wore a beautiful ‘African’ dress and meeting her is one of the biggest highlights of my career.
I enjoy this job of journalism more than ever and I am doing what I always dreamed of.
On that note, I leave you all with one mission. I want you all to chase after your dreams. By chase I mean strap on some rollerblades, helmet, knee pads, and go for it hard and fast. I wish you all the best on your life journey. Thanks for reading my work and for all the support you all show me consistantly.
