Are All Women Suppose to Fill Certain Roles?



The paradigm of what it means to be both a woman and human has slightly shifted and it has done wondrous things for men, women and youth in America.

Men are learning and appreciating. Women are becoming more confident and inspired to create and embrace communities of love, growth and truth. Through various social media platforms, youth are putting messages meant to be positive out that are becoming viral (the Power of Makeup challenge, for example).
However, it is clear that women still have a long way to go.

There has recently been a lot of controversy in the media regarding women’s “roles” and how women are viewed if they are not fulfilling every aspect of those “roles.”

For instance, on the new talk show FABLife, 41-year-old media mogul Tyra Banks and 29-year-old model Chrissy Teigen recently opened up about their fertility issues and how hurtful and potentially offensive it can be to ask women about their future of having kids. The question usually comes with a side-eye, preconceived notion that because a woman hasn’t had any, she’s not interested thus making her “selfish” or “less-than” a woman.

“I am so tired of seeing on social media, ‘Why don’t you have kids? Why don’t you have kids?’ You don’t know. You don’t know what I’m going through,” Banks said through tears.

Teigen also opened up about her fertility struggles with husband and singer, John Legend.

“Anytime someone asks me if I’m going to have kids,” she said. “I’m like, one day you’re gonna ask that to the wrong girl who is really struggling and it’s gonna be hurtful to them. And I hate that. I hate it. Stop asking me!”

The crowd of women burst in applause and cheers of agreement.

The transparency of women and their issues has caught wind and other women in media are speaking out as well.
Actress, Gabrielle Union, recently spoke out to Redbook magazine about her struggles both with making the decision to have kids and balancing a career and potential motherhood.

“There’s a certain amount of shame that is placed on women who have perhaps chosen a career over starting a family younger. The penance for being a career woman is barrenness. You feel like you’re wearing a scarlet letter.”

Transparency in the media for women has become so significant in the fight to combat ignorance, discrimination and traditional gender roles or social norms. It helps build a bridge between men and women and foster a community of love and appreciation.

We understand the difficulties that comes with trying to fill out a “certain role” while striving to become the best in your career. Because of this, we salute all career oriented women for breaking barriers and commend women such as Banks, Teigen and Union for using their platforms to share such raw and sensitive information that is, in turn, starting the conversation and helping to change how people view women all over the world.

Now signing off with the reminder: Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness, live it and let the world catch up to you.

‘The Real’ Surprises Staff Member at Community Academy of Philadelphia




Jeannie Mai, co-host from The Real took over Philadelphia to surprise a special staff member from the Community Academy of Philadelphia Charter School. The Assistant Operations Manager, Vilma Ray (also known to everyone as grandmom Ray) has dedicated over 16 years of her life serving the children and staff at Community Academy. She’s held multiple jobs for the school, to name a few – she’s driven the bus, mowed the lawns, cleaned up after students, supervised discipline room and the federal lunch program. Regardless of whatever the job was, big or small – she’s said to have completed each task with a smile on her face.


“Momma Ray is a miracle worker” – Alberta O’Brien, High School Principal.


Everyone that comes into grandmom’s Ray life, she is known to impact them in an empowering way. When needed, she is always a ray of sunshine and the backbone for everyone. It is because of this, Jeannie Mai came to the school to surprise and honor grandmom Ray for her years of service and commitment. Grandmom Ray originally thought she was randomly selected to play their infamous “Dimestore to Deluxe” game but little did she know there was a huge surprise for her at the end. Check out the segment of #TheRealOnTheRoad Philadelphia below:

Why Being Kind is Too Much Sauce



You’re probably already aware that your smile could change someone’s day. We hear it all of the time: Smile. Be kind. Be courteous. Use manners.  But would you believe it if I told you that your smile could change someone’s life?

It can. Because it’s not just the smile, it’s also what comes with it. The confidence, the happiness, the positive vibes and energy that are released into world that may translate to a silent affirmation for someone else.

Smile, because you never know who’s watching feeding off of you. It’s a small act of kindness with a big impact on both the giver and the receiver.


And when it comes to small acts of kindness, too often we underestimate the power of them.

When you do things that aren’t required of you in hopes of helping or uplifting a person you know nothing about, not only does it become infectious, but the world finds a way to bring that goodness back around to you.

When Florida State University football player, Travis Rudolph, recently ate lunch with Bo Paske, an autistic boy who sat alone in the cafeteria, he could not have fathomed the national attention that small act of his was about to garner.

Not only did he help to bring more awareness to the autistic community, but he changed the lives of both Bo and his mother, and caught the attention of the media and sports community that will only prove to be beneficial to his career.
And all of this sparked from a picture he didn’t even know was being taken.

Again, you never know who’s watching you.

The powerful possibilities that come with randomly doing something nice for people are endless and rewarding. You could simply change their day by lifting their spirits or you could change their way of thinking about both the world and others.

Not only are acts of kindness significant, but they’re really easy to practice. Here are five ways you can be kind to someone today:

  1. Hand write a thank you note: handwritten anything is becoming so rare that taking the time to do so in the form of a thank you note will be sure to linger in the mind of the receiver.
  2. Support a dream or positive venture: You see it on your Facebook or Twitter timeline all of the time. Someone asking you to “like” their new business page or fill out a brief survey for their new idea. How long does it really take to do something like this? Do it.
  3. Compliment someone: You never know the kind of day someone is having. Write a compliment on your waiter or cashier’s receipt. Tell your coworker how great they are at their job. Tell the person on the train next to you how much you love their hair.
  4. Tell someone you appreciate them: It’s so easy to go on about our days expecting to receive certain things from certain people. Whether that’s money from mom or an invitation from your friend, tell that person you appreciate them for playing a positive role in your life.
  5. Smile: Like Nike, just do it.
