This week's Monday Motivation comes from digital strategist, content creator, and world class Milly-rocker, Quinta Brunson. In just a few short years, Quinta Brunson went from a TV-loving college student to one of the Internet's most popular viral content creators. Taking a break from making our stomachs hurt with laughter, Quinta takes the time to seriously discuss the power of race and representation in America.

In this talk, Brunson discusses her role and experience in the entertainment industry as well as the way in which advertisements influence the way we perceive ourselves. She challenges us to view our world with a critical eye because the “new and honest perspectives are what build the future.”
