You Are More Than Magic

The Black and Brown Girls' Guide to Finding Your Voice

Minda Harts
Perfect for graduation gifts and other transitional milestones, this guide is for girls of color looking to find their voice and claim space as they prepare for high school, college, and their careers, from the bestselling author of The Memo: What Women of Color Need to Know to Secure a Seat at the Table.

 

When you're a girl of color, figuring out how to find your voice and make sure everyone around you can hear it is essential. CEO and bestselling author Minda Harts knows--she's been there. And she's ready to walk you through it all with her own stories of success and the missteps that helped her grow--from running for high school student council when she was barely tall enough to reach the podium, to starting her own com­pany, The Memo LLC, that helps women of color advocate for themselves and their ca­reers. Now she's here to hype you up and be real with you about:

 


- Building your squad: what to look for in a friend, finding mentors, and setting boundaries for healthy relationships
- Saying what you mean without saying it mean: prepping yourself for self-advocacy, negotiations, and tough conversations
- Leaning into courage: affirming yourself, dealing with no's, and speaking up even when you feel like the "only one"

 

With lots of practical advice and real-life anecdotes, as well as questions for reflection and further resources, this book is all about finding your own unique path to success--at school, at work, at home, and beyond. Success is far from magical, but you've al­ready got the tools you need to figure out your next best moves. And your stand-in big sis Minda is here to help you every step of the way!
