“Finding the Queen Within”
Stacy S. Crawley is a mom of four beautiful girls (including a set of twins) who are all under the age of nine. Needless to say, there's never a dull moment in her life lol. She loves reading (when she can), writing and reciting poetry, trying new things, and doing anything that involves sitting near or by water for peace and tranquility. Stacy also loves inspiring and motivating others to be their best self, walk boldly in their purpose, and fearlessly share their unique gifts with the world. It is her mission to impact and transform the lives of moms all around the world by telling her story and inspiring them to thrive and not just survive in their motherhood journey.
What is your monologue about?
My monologue shines the light on a very vulnerable and rarely talked about topic in the black community, which is postpartum depression. It opens the dialogue on what it’s like to have to parent through this process, find a way to communicate to those you love what you’re going through even when you don’t have the words to express it, and somehow find yourself again and come out free on the other side.
In your opinion, what do Black women need most right now?
Black mothers need love, support and community. Doing this thing called motherhood, especially as a black woman can be overwhelming, exhausting and stressful. Building community and showing love and support allows our moms to know that they’re not alone in their journey and everything will be okay.
Where is your favorite place to go in the DMV, or your hometown?
North Beach and sit on the pier and watch the water.
What makes your family unique?
We are a family of all females lol. My girls are beautiful, strong, and courageous young ladies and I thank God for them every single day.
