INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“The millennial Becoming . . . Inspiring and empowering.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“An essential read for women in the workplace today.” —Refinery29

In this part-manifesto, part-memoir, the revolutionary editor who infused social consciousness into the pages of Teen Vogue explores what it means to come into your own—on your own terms

Throughout her life, Elaine Welteroth has climbed the ranks of media and fashion, shattering ceilings along the way. In this riveting and timely memoir, the groundbreaking journalist unpacks lessons on race, identity, and success through her own journey, from navigating her way as the unstoppable child of an unlikely interracial marriage in small-town California to finding herself on the frontlines of a modern movement for the next generation of change makers.

Welteroth moves beyond the headlines and highlight reels to share the profound lessons and struggles of being a barrier-breaker across so many intersections. As a young boss and often the only Black woman in the room, she’s had enough of the world telling her—and all women—they’re not enough. As she learns to rely on herself by looking both inward and upward, we’re ultimately reminded that we’re more than enough.

Inspiring Read! Highly Recommend!!

I enjoyed every page in this book! It was very inspiring and powerful to read. Being a black, female in her 20s working in the fashion industry, this was a very important read for me. It helped me feel like I am not alone and there are people out there that are going through some of the same things. Thank you for sharing your story! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Elaine. I hope she writes more books. I wish her the best of luck in all of her creative endeavors!!
