Under my brand Addie Rawr, I achieved my main goal in 2023 of introducing more positive art and products for Black women in the stationery and gifting world. After 10 years of creating one of a kind journals, greeting cards, planners, stickers, mugs and more, I was able to transition from focusing on products to helping others start similar businesses."

I took a leap of faith to be a voice for the silenced and highlight the organic impact diverse communities have on American culture."
