Miss Ama Girl

A little about me

I am a Black feminist writer whose passions revolve around DC residents and good IPAs. It is my life’s goal to uplift the stories of Black people’s joys, complexities, and pleasures. I want us to continue imagining a world where we are free to be our best selves.

As an editor, I strive to help writers – with special interest in supporting Black writers experiencing trans/misogynoir – tell their stories in beautiful and personally meaningful ways. My passion for exploring myself and my people through language trickles into my professional work, where I strive to uplift Black people – our voices and experiences – through political communications strategy and narrative framing.

When I’m not writing self-indulgent poetry or sweating over erotic fiction, I organize with Black women in my community to provide material support such as groceries, tutoring services, and childcare to my people.

You can find some of my poetry featured alongside other Black artists in the first issue of the Black Woman’s Latitude zine!
