Our woman crush this Wednesday is Luvvie Ajayi, a great Nigerian author, speaker, and digital strategist.

Ajayi began her career in marketing and digital strategy, and started blogging in 2003.

Her site AwesomelyLuvvie.com amassed a following, particularly for Ajayi’s recaps of television shows like Scandal, drawing the attention of Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes.

In 2016, The New York Times reported that Ajayi had an audience of approximately 500,000 between her personal Twitter feed and the Awesomely Luvvie website.

Ajayi published her first book, I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual, with Henry Holt & Co in September 2016; it debuted at number five on the New York Times best-seller list.

In 2016, Ajayi was the first writer invited to speak at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and her event sold out.
We celebrate the wonderful Luvvie Ajayi as our woman crush Wednesday.
