The Power of Women Empowerment | Ebony

Life.

Hello beautiful people,

Today I will be highlighting Ebony Glass, 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 Ebony Glass. I’m a wife, I’m a mom, and a cinephile.

Although I hold a BA in Fashion Design & Fashion Merchandising from Ursuline College, I am a woman of many hats. I am a blogger, a YouTuber, a t-shirt designer, an online ESL teacher, I study acting, and I home-school my seven-year-old son.

Most of my work currently goes into my blog.

I love to write about affordable fashion finds for curvy minimalists, mental health and other health issues that have been a part of my life.

It’s my way of letting other young women know that I know what it’s like to go through things not often talked about.

Especially among women of color.

2. What does women empowerment mean to you?

It means to first, recognize my womanhood and what it means for me to embrace my femininity and what God has created me to be. My femininity isn’t a sign a weakness. My femininity is strong enough to change the world and to be a positive symbol for everyone that I meet, work with, or raise and nurture.

God made me a woman, a black woman. In which, I am very honored that the highest power in the universe has made me a black woman and that means that I can do great things because of a great God.

Secondly, it means that once I have learned about myself that I can then help other women learn about themselves, help them learn about the power that made them, and learn about the power that is within them.

3. What do you love about women empowerment?

I love to see a sisterhood among other women.

It shows that we do better together and that it doesn’t help to mistreat others.

Working together and being supportive in anyway helps us to bond together and become stronger so that when trouble comes in our personal lives or as a community, we can be more resilient.

Therefore, we can recover faster.

4. What is something you’re willing to bring to women empowerment?

I hope to be that woman that has at least one testimony for everyone woman and I hope that each testimony can point others to Christ.

I hope to show that it’s okay to be themselves and it’s okay have what they have right now and use it to take care of what they have right in front of them.

I hope to help others understand that their current circumstances could be the steps that lead them to their answered prayers.

What we go through is muscle-building and makes us that glowing beacon of hope for someone else to know to keep living.

I hope to show this through my writing, my designing, acting, and my other forms of creative talents God had blessed me with.

5. How are you showing up for yourself and other women?

Recently, I’ve made room in my time and my finances to receive therapy again. T

his time, I made sure to seek out a counselor who acknowledges and practices different types of methods of therapies.

I knew it was time to get someone who will challenge me to get out of this feeling of “being stuck”.

I’ve been recommending to many women to get therapy and that it’s possible to find an affordable one via a site called Open Path Collective.

I also often find myself offering advice to other women about the necessity of finding the right fit for clothes, marital advice, biblical advice, motherhood advice, etc.

6. What are 3-5 things you value about being a woman?

I value…

My body.

My motherhood.

My wifehood.
