One of the messages I would love to give young women, particularly young Black women and women of color is this: Take up space.

I see them soften their recommendations with caveats, their emails and text messages with exclamation points and emojis so as not to appear too much, too rude. I say this like I’m talking about other people, but I’m not. I’m talking about myself, too.
