She also started a blog right after graduation, and, being a side-hustle pro, she also made and sold handmade Read More

Natasha Howard: Fit, Fab and Forever Funky

Life is full of multi-tasking, roles and duties, but it’s also full of opportunities — to better ourselves, work hard and establish things in this world we are passionate about. Sometimes, those opportunities don’t have much to do with one another, but each helps to build a uniqueness about us .

Renee’s Corner: 2017…The Year in Review

2017 has been teachable and outspoken. It has been triumphant. I think many would agree it’s also been a “wild ride.” Uncle Funky’s Daughter has undergone many changes and has strived everyday this year to elevate, expand and include curly girls everywhere. As we bring 2017 to a close, I wanted to share some of my most memorable moments and happenings from the past year: We started the year off in protest for things as important to us at the Women’s March in January, and are still pumping our fists (and moving our fingers) to be heard (or read). Millions around the Read More
