CELEBRATING BLACK WOMEN: Giavanni Alves

Giavanni Alves is a college sophomore from New York who recently wrote an article for the Daily Pennsylvanian called, “#BlackWomenExcellence.”

“It is worth noting that black women’s excellence is not limited to that which can be given a plaque, certificate or trophy. While it is easier to attempt to validate something based on statistics and titles, our force need not be validated. Black women are excellent because of their intelligence, talent, strength, courage, beauty and more. While I have discussed only a small sample, the ways in which black women embody excellence is infinite.”

Giavanni’s column “Ja Feel” celebrates the lives of black women. Check out the rest of her article here.
