My desire to focus on black women is simply because I had the impression that they are excluded from the greater world of beauty, art, fashion, and especially in the intellectual sphere. Some people have the tendency to think that we are the exception in these types of spheres. They very rarely hold black women in high regard; they criticize and analyze her curves, her skin color, and her hair texture [by comparing these images with the images created by the majority white media]. And I am here just to try to give [black woman] back her rightful place in the world of beauty, art, and more. We are not less than other women. We are beautiful with our curves, our skin tones from the most light to the most dark. We can be whatever we want!
