Writer

Winifred Matanmi is a sophomore at Kennesaw Mountain High School in Georgia. Winifred is passionate about feminism and women in STEM. She always works to educate herself on all national issues, especially those affecting cultural and ethnic groups that are often overlooked and ignored. Winifred plans to study chemical engineering in college, and she hopes that she can help in paving the path for young black girls interested in STEM. She believes that black women are an unstoppable force of nature who have been unappreciated and devalued for far too long. With that being said, Winifred hopes that her writing pieces with Dear Dark Skinned Girl will educate people and empower young black women. Her goal is to ensure that black women are recognized for their excellence and commended as smart, hard-working individuals that can make a difference in the world. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music, hanging out with friends, and exploring different forms of art.
