On Friday, April 5th, I got the opportunity to meet Elaine Welteroth and Brittany Packnett, Abby Wambach, and Glennon Doyle at the Be the Change event hosted at Florida Atlantic University. Elaine’s book More Than Enough will be out June 11, 2019 and it can be pre-ordered here. I do not have any affiliate links and this is not a sponsored post.
The first time I saw Elaine Welteroth was in my living room. I was watching an episode of Blackish where she was playing Zoey’s boss. This was long before my love affair with Grownish began. One of the things that struck out most to me was her hair. Watching a black woman in a position of power with her hair in its natural state, that meant a lot to my teenage self. Her appearance in Grownish brought about that same feeling. After hearing about her role in co-writing that episode, I knew I had to meet her for myself.
Episode nine starts with Zoey, Ana, and Nomi being a cute little squad. They head over to the Cal U Arts Fest to see Luca’s exhibit. One of Luca’s pieces hits a nerve for Zoey. It’s legit a painting of Luca’s ex, and it is super detailed. Aaron mentions that the body is “very well composed.”
I’ve been gone too long y’all. Life has been hitting me hard, but I’m starting my Spring Break and trust me, I need it. How have you been?
Make sure to check out my other recaps. I’ll get the Episode 9 recap out within the next few days.
So this episode starts with Zoey at one of the biggest parties of the semester… during finals week. It’s literally called “Faded for Finals.” She talks about her 3-pronged plan to keep her from getting too wild tonight. She has a timer, breathalyzer, and water, claiming she’ll only stay for ten minutes. Mmmhmm, we’ll see about that boo.
