Guess who is going to share the stage today with Queen Latifah? Oh yeeeaaahhh baby. Me.
I am so excited, it’s ridiculous. It’s for the BlogHer13 conference where I was chosen as one of the Voices of the Year. My piece was picked as one that will be read at the evening keynote.
To say I’m nervous is an understatement. Actually I was fine about reading in front of the large audience, but when I found out that Queen Latifah was hosting the event I started to feel the butterflies.
The Queen is going to hear words that I’ve strung together. Whollycheeseballs. Queen Latifah has long been someone I’ve looked up to. I remember hearing Ladies First when I was in middle school and it struck a chord with me.
A female rapper, owning her strength and being a proud woman was inspiring. It is inspiring. She seems to be fearless in trying new things and I love it.
So tonight will definitely be a new thing, wish me luck. I’ll be sure to tell you how it went.
