My name is Christina and I am The Awkward Activist. I am a black millennial who enjoys watching documentaries on Netflix while also cooking vegan recipes and trying new restaurants. When I am not doing either of those things I am writing about social issues for various publications or for my own blog.

The Awkward Activist is a blog discussing and analyzing social issues with a focus on race, mental health, gender, and sexuality. I primarily write about issues affecting the black community because I am a black woman and I want to educate people on topics that effect the black community, but I will write and discuss any topic or issue I feel needs to be discussed. Ultimately, I hope when people read The Awkward Activist they are able to walk away with new knowledge on an issue they may have not known that much about.
