This is Ateira’s modus operandi. She makes it a point to have a seat at the table where there is typically a lack of representation of women of color. This time, Ateira had been invited to be at this table and she did not have to do much fighting to get there. Knowing that her seat might pave the way for other young women, especially for young black women to be able to guide the process of growth and development of the city in a way that fits the resident’s needs is what brought her the greatest joy and inspiration. In addition, the opportunity to be able to speak candidly in that gathering with authenticity felt like a huge success. Ateira summed it all up with a final quote, one of her favorites from Shirley Chisolm, “If they don’t make a space for you at the table, bring a folding chair.”
