We had the good fortune of connecting with Khadi A. Oluwatoyin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Khadi, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Our members make Sober Black Girls Club the success it is today. We are a collective of vibrate, passionate folks working on ourselves as individuals while remaining connected with one another through community and storytelling.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a civil attorney and the creator of Sober Black Girls Club- an organization that focuses on health, wellness, and sobriety among Black womxn and non-binary people. I created Sober Black Girls Club in October of 2018 after noticing my own struggles with alcohol and the lack of digital support for women of color working towards sobriety. Today, we provide consistent content, support, and resources for our members. The goal is to pursue wellness, sobriety, social justice, and much more.
I practice law part-time (if that). It is my goal to run Sober Black Girls Club full time. It is my pride and joy and needs a lot of nurturing it can get.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In Atlanta? I am from New York City but some of my favorite places to visit are Slutty Vegan, Grant Park, Centennial Olympic Park, and the Trap Music Museum.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shout out the members of Sober Black Girls Club. The sisterhood is unmatched. The dedication to healing and recovery is beyond inspiring,
