Chapter 39-Kenya of Kenya Imani

Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Kenya.

In this chapter, Kenya shares how she is on track to paying down $10,000 in debt! Inspired by someone else’s journey to pay off their debt and take a sabbatical, she got busy researching and just after her birthday in January 2020, she got to work making $8,000 disappear. We get into how Black women are being paid less to begin with, and how important it is to negotiate your salary. Kenya talks about being a Black woman Muslim and being highly visible since she wears the hijab, and how her relationship with her faith has changed over time. She talks about how even though she sometimes deals with lack of confidence and second-guessing herself, she’s preparing to leave the United States permanently in 2021. Kenya discusses building a business that’s true to herself and the fear of being lonely while traveling. We also have a discussion around how to intentionally address your fears and sitting with uncomfortable emotions to grow and heal. Kenya and a co-founder have created a book and community for Black women Muslims who need to know that covering can be an expression of your style, and not just a facet of your faith. I also get her to sing a lil somethin.

You can connect with Kenya on Instagram, or on her website Kenya Imani.

Kenya has a manifestation playlist on Spotify and is inspired by this song lyric:

You’re the key to the kingdom

“Keys to the Kingdom” by Tiwa Savage & Mr. Eazi
