Lisa Dazzell’s story is just beginning. Everything she has done in her life has been done with intention and for Dazzell there is no intention of slowing down. Dazzell believes in the voice of the Black community and hopes that her work will serve as a form of empowerment and liberation.

From Guyana, Dazzell and her family came to the United States when she was five-years-old. It is common for those who immigrate to a new country to experience a culture shock, but growing up Dazzell’s grandmother taught her and her siblings about race, specifically in the context of white societal norms.
