“It made me feel really good to get noticed on social media, especially as a person of color. It felt really good to hear people telling me that they felt inspired by me, that I made them feel like they could accomplish anything, that they’re going to set bigger goals. It felt good to know that other African-Americans and people of color were inspired by me and that I helped them feel like they could accomplish anything they put their minds to.”
