“If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn this world upside down, these women together ought to be able to turn it right again.” Angela Bassett is a black girl who rocks! The icon gave a powerful speech while receiving the Icon Award at the Black Girl’s Rock 2019, and you surely want to watch this.
Let’s give you major highlights of her speech;
- We all have a purpose, even if we’re striving to know what that means.
- There will be times when you seemingly face insurmountable obstacles, but that’s when you dig deep into your soul for the courage and the fortitude to keep going and to never forget that despite life’s detours, you are destined for greatness.
- When you show gratitude, you’re able to remember that you didn’t arrive in this place of your journey by yourself.
- When you’re told you’re not good enough, you tell them “not only am I good enough, I’m more than enough.”
