Sage Society | Janelle Monae
I love that Janelle has been, from what I can see, authentically herself from the first time I saw her perform. I remember seeing her perform at Jazzman's on the campus of Morehouse College and to see how far she has come is inspiring and exciting.
Janelle Monáe is an American singer, songwriter, actress, model, and the owner of the Wondaland Arts Society. She is the epitome of a woman who knows what she desires, works hard to achieve it, and continuously perfects her craft. She role models accepting nothing less than the best.
Janelle remains herself each and every day. She isn't a copy of someone who has come before her; she's an original. She has her own unique style and this is important especially today. Janelle is a member of our Sage Society because she's a role model. Young girls see so many images on social media and sometimes it's confusing to their young minds what they are "supposed" to look like or how they are "supposed" to act. It's good to see someone achieve what they want in life by being authentic.
Thank you Janelle Monáe for being yourself, authentic, a role model, and an inspiration to others. Thank you for standing up for things you believe in. Thank you for supporting causes that really need support. Thank you for being so damn sage.
