A Chat with: Jamie Broadnax

May 20, 2016

Hey Gang!

 I am so excited about this. I have been branching out with the types of posts I've been wanting to create for you guys, for some crazy reason, I scored an interview with THE Jamie Broadnax, creator of Black Girl Nerds, THE community for like-minded ladies like myself. I am so excited to talk to her, and have you guys learn more about her. She was one of the first ladies to give me a chance as a contributor. She's a huge role model for Black female bloggers putting nerd in Pop Culture content!

What caused you to create Black Girl Nerds? 
 I noticed that nerd culture was becoming mainstream, but didn't see any black women so I decided to search Black Girl Nerds and nothing came up. So I created a blog that evening.

Where would you like to see BGN go? What would you like it to become ultimately? 
 I'd like to be a company. Just like other geek outlets who have been able to branch off and partner with companies; I'd like to see the same for BGN. I want to make this space my career.

What did you want to be when you were younger? I wanted to be a filmmaker.
