In my 20’s I discovered Issa Rae’s “Awkward Black Girl” on YouTube. Her socially awkward demeanor depicted my whole existence! It was then I realized being a socially awkward introvert is not a negative quality. I’m wired in a way that appreciates solitude and uses it as an opportunity to recharge, reflect and rebuild.
As a textbook introvert I’ve managed to connect with people in the fashion and media world in order to build long-lasting, professional relationships. I realized there are tons of us out there! Introvert N the City is a safe space for introverts, those who don’t understand introverts and the socially awkward folks who need need to be reminded of their amazingly unique personalities.
