Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Thought she had to follow the "American script": go to college, get a job, live happily ever after, etc.
Says that's all just a myth for most people; "you've barely lived in your twenties; how can you decide what you'll do for the next fifty years?"
Grew up in Chicago, saw the 1968 riots, saw the Black Panthers with a strong platform; calls this an "opportune time."
Knows this environment primed her for social justice work, but didn't realize it until later, when she got some distance.
Works as executive director for Black Women for Wellness, a non-profit organization that educates and supports black women.
Says she's happy because she's "living her life, not somebody else's life."
Admits that there are things she would've done differently, but ultimately is living the life she always wanted.
Discourages people from "following a script," says living someone else's definition of a "good life" only leads to midlife crises.
