Every day I wake up at around 7am and ride the New York City subway for almost an hour to work. And everyday it’s worth it.. Though my job is not a corporate company, it is a very prestigious organization. Every day of the week I am in, if not one, multiple meetings. I find myself looking around the room in these meetings and never see a face like mine. I am the youngest (I’m only 22) person in the office. Not only am I the youngest, I am also a woman, and on top of that I am a black woman. I’m thankful that I went to an HBCU…Spelman in particular, because I was taught that I could change the world. Even though I see mostly old white men in suits at work, I know I am capable of accomplishing anything and reaching a great magnitude of success. All thanks to my institution💁🏽 and my family. #FeelingVeryBlessed

In the video, Kourtney and her ex-boyfriend, Leonard, talk about how they met while they were in college together.
