Disabled And Cute: With Keah Brown

Keah Brown is not here to inspire you. What she is here to do is be a beacon of self love, professional success, and next level cuteness.

By starting the hashtag #DisabledAndCute on twitter, she’s giving a platform for the disabled to celebrate themselves.

Taylor Swift, Silicon Valley, & Fighting Sexual Harassment: With Tammy Cho

When Taylor Swift, one of the biggest celebrities in the world, has to fight tooth and nail against harassment, we know there’s a problem.

She gives me the skinny on how she has managed motherhood with her career behind the camera and how she makes an effort to support female directors.
