Carrie loves super kick parties and once aided Cindi Mayweather in avoiding capture. Shuri is her favorite Disney Princess. Everything under the sun from film to comics to video games to professional wrestling strikes her fancy. She firmly believes that we can and we should critique the media texts we consume.

She is a recent graduate of Cal State University Dominguez Hills as of May 2019 where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Communications with the Media Studies Option. At the moment she's sure to stay busy as a editor for Blacknerdproblems.com As a recipient of Hollywood Foreign Press Association Fellowship her creative work centers the work of Black, female creatives in Hollywood.

Here are a few of her more recent twitter threads: This one is on the lack of teaching about narrative women filmmakers, retweeted by filmmaker Alma Har'el.

This thread here is about Black pain, Black trauma & Black women serving as matriarchs of family units, her first thread after Twitter introduced the 280 character update.

This thread is a love letter to Aja Kong: one of Carrie's favorite professional wrestlers and a legit biracial badass with an inspirational story.

This last thread sits at the intersection of humor and educating: A thread of memes she made featuring Storm of the X-Men and responses to street harassment, the last memes were inspired by the Stop Telling Women To Smile art project created by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. [Updated Thread]
