Hello beautiful people,
Today I will be highlighting Madisen in this weeks “The power of Women Empowerment”.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself + what it is you do and where can we find you on social media?
My name is Madisen and I’m a blogger living in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I started my blog Melanin Skin and Curls around 4 months ago to document my journey to natural hair, natural skincare, and self-love.
On my blog you can find tips for natural hair and skin, product reviews, and personal posts about me.
I started to write about things I go through outside of social media such as depression, anxiety, and my chronic illness.
I find a lot of people can relate when I blog about these difficulties.
You can find me on these social media platforms:
2. What does women empowerment mean to you?
To me, it means to support other women instead of being in competition with them.
One of my favorite quotes is: “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back” and it’s nothing but the truth.
In this world, we see too many women constantly tearing each other down.
They want to make the next one look bad to make themselves feel more superior.
We need to remember there is enough room for all of us to prosper.
We don’t need to see other women as a threat, we need to instead give them a helping hand and support their dreams.
When you support others and give out positive energy, it will come back to you.
3. What do you love about women empowerment?
I love seeing all women have the opportunity to reach their goals and have a support system behind them.
Being around positive women with good vibes is exciting.
It keeps me motivated to continue reaching for my dreams no matter what obstacles I come across.
There’s no greater feeling than a tribe of women supporting what you want in life while at the same time growing their own brand.
I love seeing women come together and show nothing but love and compassion.
4. What is something you’re willing to bring to women empowerment?
I’m willing to bring more awareness to all women who want to be successful in life.
I want to show more appreciation for others and how much they have grown.
As long as I continue to do those things, it will help to empower women and show others we are just as strong and can do anything we put our mind to.
5. How are you showing up for yourself and other women?
Having the mindset that “today is going to be a good day” everyday will help us to enjoy every moment and focus on our blessings.
I’m also showing up for myself by stepping outside of my comfort zone more often.
When we do something we’re afraid of, it helps us to grow and proves we CAN do it.
I encourage other women to do something they always wanted to do such as starting a blog or anything they feel is intimidating.
I support them and show them it’s possible!
6. What are 3-5 things you value about being a woman?
One thing I value about being a woman is the ability to become a mother in the future.
Carrying a life for 9 months and then bringing them into a world is something I look at as an amazing experience.
Growing a life inside of you is beautiful. Only a woman can do that!
I value the strength that I have as a woman.
We usually have a lot of burdens to deal with:
That time of the month, trying to prove our self-worth to society, working to build a profession, and showing others we aren’t weak.
We can stay strong and continue to get things done.
We can help each other to keep going during those difficult times.
I value the bond I can have with other women. As women, we have a huge capacity to love and care for other people.
I’m able to create friendships with others’ who share the same experiences or emotions as I do.
There’s something special when you have a group of women who understand you, love you, and support you.
