Built by flaws. The name speaks for its self. Not only do we have healthy debates but these girls genuinely are there to anyone who needs that ear. This organization not only does it give me something to look forward to every monday but it allows me to block all negative energy and start over to create a better mood or vibe. Built by flaws, thank you for your sense of positivity and commitment

This women empowerment movement has allowed me to find my identity in my undergraduate career and also learn to voice myself in times of pressure. I have been able to find my voice on my campus and also be able to advocate for myself and people of color on my campus. I was able to learn my flaw, which was something I hated most about myself. I learned to also love my “flaw” and encourage others with flaws to love themselves no matter what. BBF has allowed me to surround myself with women who are both similar and different that I am, value other people’s opinions and also see that there are people that think and react the exact same way I do to certain situations.
I encourage other women of color to join and support the BBF movement because believe it or not, we are all similar one way or another. #ColoredGirlsUnite
