I'm a Buckeye in the Big Apple, a curator of cool, and a brown girl who's anything but average.

Over the years, I've been involved with creating content and writing article after article on topics that I just didn't relate to. Between the blonde-haired, blue-eyed "standard" of beauty, or the ecletcic, natural haired African-American woman, I find myself somewhere in the middle.

The objective for NYABG is to encourage women to stick to their beliefs and challenge the norms all while staying fashionable, free-spirited and fit! So read on my friends...
