Be Unapologetic For Being You

Even with all of her success, Tracee shares how she doesn’t let the opinions of how one thinks a woman “should” be interfere with how she lives her life. She is 45, single, has no kids, and is happy with her path thus far. She embodies the true meaning of what it means to be a boss. Shake the stereotypes, the labels, the narrow boxes that everyone wants to put you in. It’s okay to focus on your career and when the time comes, love will find you.

“My life is mine.”

-Tracee Ellis Ross

Words of Wisdom:

“When we put ourselves first by doing things like saying no, speaking up, sleeping with who we want, eating what our bodies intuitively tell us to eat, wearing training bra’s instead of push up bras, posting a picture without using Facetune…we are condemned for thinking for ourselves and being ourselves, for owning our experiences, our bodies, and our lives.”

“So, if my life is actually mine…then I have to really live it for myself. I have to put myself first and not be looking for permission to do so….I’ve become a woman that I am very proud to be.”

Words of wisdom from Ross at Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Summit
