Being Black in Business — Baaba Saisie

Meet Baaba Saisie, the first of many Tippie students that will be sharing their unfiltered thoughts on what it means to be Black in business. Here is what she has to say:

Inspiring. Being Black in business is inspiring because it encourages people to pursue success in places that seem unattainable.

Courage. It takes courage to be in a field of unfamiliar faces. At times, I feel discouraged by the lack of people I can relate to. It also takes courage to be in a competitive field where my color may be put into account concerning my skills. Despite the challenges, I know that with courage, I can achieve anything despite my skin color.”
