I Am Not A Stereotype: I Am H.E.R. (2019)
The imperfect book written with the perfect message. It’s purposely “flawed” (meaning it was deliberately edited to have mistakes). She wanted the world to understand imperfections are apart life and if you see yourself and people beyond the flaws there is beauty and so is the story.
Socialized to have a need for belongingness; and it came at the expense of ridicule, criticism, & losing who Dr. Pam was. How mentally toxic and taxing it was to live a life living up to other people’s standards of whom she needed to be. She had to STOP IT! She had to change the narrative & stop believing in the stereotyping of whom she was taught to believe she should be! She had to heal, get real, forgive, and learn to sit on her pedestal to holistically see the world differently. Now, she does not allow judgment to change who she is. Dr. Pam no longer allows anyone to determine what she loves, how she loves or reduce who she is because of their own insecurities or mental demons. She is letting the world know she is not a stereotype…I am H.E.R!
Now it’s your turn! It’s time to live your unapologetic truth. Be encouraged and inspired to look at your life, be comfortable in your skin, sit on your pedestal, and start having discussions to change the narrative of imperfection in this world filled with criticism, social inequality, and social judgment.

Bl@ck Girl Advocate: Changing the Narrative for Black Women (2021)
Being a Black girl activist is being an advocate for change when it comes to women of color and how we need our community to shift the way we think of ourselves to change the narrative about us. Society has a way of making black and brown women and girls feel unworthy based on hair texture, skin color, physical features, and at times even devalue the work we accomplished.
What is fed into our community is what resonates outside of it so we [black women] need to shift the narrative in an effort to promote social, political, mental, emotional, physical, and economic change.
We cannot continue to conform to false narratives! This book is about owning the power Black women have and giving it to the world!
