Our Woman Candy Wednesday crush this week goes to the beautiful and inspirational Rahiel Tesfamariam.
Rahiel is the Founder/Publisher of Urban Cusp, a magazine dedicated to social justice and highlighting progressive urban culture. At the young age of 23 Rahiel was named the editor-in-chief of The Washington Informer newspaper, making her the youngest to hold that position in the newspaper’s history. She has also worked as a community organizer for anti-violence youth initiatives.
I became familiar with Rahiel in 2014 during Urban Cusp’s coverage of the Ferguson protests and began doing my research after finally visiting the website instead of staying updated through Facebook.
Rahiel became an immediate source of inspiration for me and I know she has made an impact on other brown girls around the world. Keep up with Rahiel on Instagram @rahielt.
