  • Shirelle Thorne

    AAWIC offers exposure to black and brown women who have just as much talent in the media space as other genders and races. We have been overlooked in the past, and platforms like AAWIC gives us confidence and validation that we have stories that not only matter, but that global audiences want to hear and see.
