Highly educated black woman. …so what

Levaughn,
Grand Blanc, MI.

I’m a master social worker and received my accelerated advanced degree from a top ten university…MSU… I am an outpatient therapist and attained this job in less than a year from graduating. Which in my field is highly unlikely. I have worked very hard to go from poverty to the “American dream” by pulling myself up from my own bootstraps….but truth is…my educational and professional attainment means nothing. I am still viewed as a young educated black woman…..How did she make it this far? You must not be from this area? You speak so well?

    …all hype and ignorance..I have an advanced degree in Education and am life long self employed…I don’t answer those things normally, if i do, they won’t be asked again and all of of a sudden…respect!…which to me is unexpected, but so be it!…my GPA was 3.7+…my degree looks just like those who got a 2.5!
