                             Our first story release of 2019, "The Stand for Justice," comes from  Dr. Nicole Norfles , Black African American; consummate professional; self-described super power-bearing goddess; and free woman living and working in the DC Metro Area. Also a BlackFemaleProject member and #100SistersStrong sustaining donor, Dr. Norfles is the facilitator of Council for Opportunity in Education’s (COE) STEM Community of Practice; co-principal Investigator on multiple National Science Foundation grants; and director of COE's onboarding progressional development and TRIO Chicago Collaborative. Dr. Norfles’ conversation with BlackFemaleProject Founder Precious J. Stroud illuminates her commitment to fighting for those who might not have a seat at the table to fight for themselves, the root of this commitment, and the wisdom she’s gained from her impressive and expansive career journey. 
 
All of the women who share their stories in our  inaugural collection  have found themselves in a battle for sanity, cultural autonomy, or simply professional courtesy. These women have also found their own strategies for success; some are still developing these methods and share their experience with us in real time. Let’s join them now.

   Who are you and where do you live?   

  I am a Goddess. But I appear as an African American female professional that lives in the Washington, DC metro area. :-)  
 
  What’s your career focus?   
 My focus is on uplifting and providing opportunity to those least advantaged. My career is advancing that focus in my current work with the addition of STEM initiatives.   
 
  What’s something positive that came out of writing your story?   
 Forgiveness. After speaking to other women and hearing their challenges as Black females, it was so clear how we stand up and move on. That means forgive the “stuff” and move on our purpose.
