Kristin Jones Q&A

If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
I would love to speak to the late Dorothy Irene Height. She was an American administrator and educator, was a civil rights and women’s rights activist specifically focused on the issues of African-American women, including unemployment, illiteracy, and voter awareness. She was the president of the National Council of Negro Women for forty years and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1994 and the Congressional Gold Medal in 2004. I would love to speak with her about her motivations and experiences being a freedom fighter.
Who is your female sports idol?
Serena Williams…as one of the greatest athletes in the world, she is a shining example of #BlackGirlMagic. She is strong, dignified, self-assured, respectful, and disciplined.

What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
Being a D.C. Diva means defying all of the boundaries that have been previously set by others for what a woman (not just me in particular) should be able to do. It means making fierce competitiveness feminine and showing the world that Divas can be positive and powerful. I freaking love it!
