HI! I'M LATERRIA PATTON
I'm an Activist, Writer and Healer. I'm passionate about promoting self-care as a form of activism for black women because when we make the decision to make our self-care a higher priority, it is usually met with an enormous amount of resistance and retaliation from the people who have been benefiting from our lack of self-care. As I began the process of trying to take better care of myself, I begin to receive a lot of strong and adverse reactions from people. The things that I've learned on my journey inspired me to share tips with other Black women, so that they don’t feel discouraged, helpless, defeated or alone as they begin to promote changes within their own families and communities that insists upon and inspires everyone around them to recognize that self-care is a necessary practice that benefits the entire group.
