Repeat after me: “I defy stereotypes”
I’m willing to bet that when you saw my photo on the blog, some of you have already summed up who I am before even reading.
Let’s take a look at what you see in the photo and what could be derived from it.
I am a millennial. From that sentence alone I’m sure you could draw several assumptions.
I can’t keep a job.
I’m a shallow narcissist.
The list goes on and on
I am brown. Again, you can assume several things about me.
I’ve got a horrible attitude.
I can’t keep a man.
I’m dirty, broke and abuse the system.
I’m on drugs.
I am a woman. Of course, several assumptions are concluded.
I’m a bitch.
I can’t run a business and make rational decisions on my period.
The list of stereotypes goes on and on.
