Before our names are printed on our birth certificates, the world has already assigned us labels and designated our positions in life. Limitations and guardrails are placed on our hopes and dreams before we experience our first sleepover. Our gifts and talents are deducted and compartmentalized before we reach elementary school.

Ahead of confidence and character-building opportunities, society and media impose unrealistic beauty standards, the “strong black woman” trope, and the ideology that true love comes by way of heartbreak, sacrifice, and suffering, prompting self-love crisis and marriage stigmas all before we’ve experienced our first crush.

We hear more “no’s,” “you can’t” and “you won’t” before we’ve attempted to achieve, acquire, or pursue anything. We are taught perfectionism and later punished for it. Forced into independence only to be penalized because of it.
We overwork to shatter glass ceilings cemented above our careers and overachieve to knock down the walls that construct the boxes we’ve been placed in.

Unfairly and inaccurately, we have been defined by those who have never walked a day in our stilettos, and WE are over it!

The women of the Diamond Writers collective have abandoned perfectionism, we’ve denounced the titles forced upon us and are only interested in fighting for liberated, purpose-driven, soft lives.

Our stories are our declarations, our experiences, our mistakes, our wants, hopes, dreams, and desires. These stories are our confessions, journal entries, prayers, unspoken truths, and revelations.

Our stories declare who She Is!


Valid Transparency is a collective of relatable experiences, inspiring journeys and triumphant breakthroughs overcoming emotional invalidation.

Emotional invalidation is the “act of dismissing, judging or rejecting someone’s thoughts, feelings, emotions or behaviors.”

Whether intentional, unintentional, self-imposed or used by others to manipulate, emotional invalidation can cause pain, deep emotional wounds, trauma, anxiety and feelings of worthlessness.

This anthology of transparent and vulnerable confessions was written to reclaim our validity and power, forge healing and accept our internal experiences, thoughts and feelings.

Forget what you think you know about a Queen and the crown that adorns her head. The Diamond Writers have redefined and readdressed its meaning and qualifiers…
To a Diamond, a Queen is a vibe, a nature, a mood, not just a noun. It is a complement to our feminine energy and is comprised of resilience, courage, confidence and sparkle!
Nothing and no one can stop a woman who has fully tapped into her “Queen” energy. No fears, doubts, problems, emotions, negative thoughts, worries or cramps can hinder her.
She walks in her power, owns her truth and acts as a permission slip for other women to do the same.
She is forgiving of her past, intentional in her healing and resolute in her wholeness.
Her crown gets heavy from internal battles, daily challenges and sometimes, other peoples problems. Nevertheless, she never lets her crown fall… it may slip, slide, and tilt; may even need an occasional adjustment, but its never dropped or removed.
Her commitment to her purpose, her future and her legacy are her motivators.
Beneath The Crown is filled with these stories. Take inspiration from these brave women who’s transparent and authentic stories of self-discovery, empowerment, shadow work, character building and healing has propelled them into some of the greatest seasons of their lives.
