Black History Month is such an important time to reflect and share. I'm excited to share how WWE Diva Naomi took some time to share how she is celebrating diversity, not just this month, but all year long.
Note: I'm part of the WWE #WWEMoms Ambassador Program and will share information about their activities and products. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
WWE Diva Naomi
Like so many African American children, I grew up dealing with racism and ignorance, and I know kids across the country are still dealing with the same obstacles. That is why I love to work outside of the ring and spread positive messages, just as much as I love performing inside the ring.
When I interact with young fans, I want to instill a sense of confidence in each and every child, just as my mother did for me. For 35 years, my mother worked tirelessly to support my brother and me. Throughout my entire life, I’ve never seen my mother quit.
It’s so important to me that my fans know their inner beauty and self-worth, and that they never allow someone else’s label to limit their success. I knew that I was destined to be a WWE Diva and refused to give up. I live by the mantra, “Don’t follow your dreams, chase them,” and I hope the young fans watching me perform know that if I was able to become a WWE Diva, they can achieve their wildest dreams too. I’m here because I beat the odds and so can you.
While I am proud to represent black women, my role as a Diva and an athlete is to be an empowering voice for women, period. Regardless of race, we all want the same things: love, respect and our individuality.
My hope for the future is that, by loving what makes each of us different, we will learn to celebrate the diversity of those around us. There’s no better time than now to look in the mirror, find what we love about the reflection staring back, and widen the lens through which we view each other.
