Usually when people create great things, it’s because they’ve identified a need. They’ve discovered a gap — a space where nothing else like it exists.

This was the case for Juliana “Jewels” Smith, a cultural worker, organizer, writer and educator. She’s also the creator of the comic strip (H)afrocentric, which “stars a posse of disgruntled undergrads of color as they navigate their way through Ronald Reagan University.”

I think a lot of single women want to rush to get married because they believe too many things they see on social media. They watch too many romantic comedies, post too many #relationshipgoals memes and listen to too much R&B. I know this because I see ya’lls statuses, I hear ya’lls conversations. (I’m generalizing here, and I’m also a cynic, so…)

That being said, let me warn ya’ll single ladies: STOP.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
