We had the good fortune of connecting with Angel Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Angel, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk is a very important part of life. I believe taking a risk goes hand in hand with taking a leap of faith. I took a risk with my blog/website. For years I asked myself what I wanted to do in life that would make me happy. I loved writing and creating content about who i was, a black woman. That’s what fueled my decision to take the risk to start a blog combining both of my passions. Without risk, it would not be a fun journey worth taking.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Oh, Okay Sis is a celebratory community for black women and women of color through writings on my blog to events structured around black women themes. My passion is to tell the story of a black woman behind the scenes. My main achievement is to pay respect and give love to every woman of color that is in alignment to reach her full potential in life. I am so excited to come together and collaborate with like minded women to help this community grow even more. The main motto of this brand is to support one another and not form a competition that society at times wants us to follow. It’s never easy to start your vision but when your vision is full filled, but seeing the fruits of its harvest, that’s the reward. i have learned to keep going especially during times when it gets hard.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First of all i love Houston-its my hometown. I spend most of my time in midtown, heights, and third ward area. They have different varieties of sights, events, and especially food. I would love to show off numberous types of black owned business plus more. I am a morning to night person. We could start off a Day 6 coffee shop. I would spend a day at my favorite wellness spa, Drannys Dream Wellness spa, take some black girl magic pictures at The Muesuem for Black Girls, and Johnny Uptown for a glamorous night and the post for an adventure of food.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family is my biggest support system. I owe my love and adoration to them because if it was not for them I wouldnt be the woman I am today. But more specifically, my biggest dedication goes to the women in my family. They showed me that being a black woman takes a lot of hard work and commitment to achieve your life dreams. That became my visual representation, daily.
