Being a woman in the 21st century is an elated and exciting time as women have achieved many things, but being a successful black woman today has taken on a whole new meaning. In 1921 Dr. Georgiana Rose Simpson was the first African American woman to receive her PhD and she has paved the way for so many others!
Dr. Sophia Roberson (also known as Doc) is a self-proclaimed rebellious Afro-Latina "born and raised in Miami" who grew up in Liberty City Florida. Despite her childhood circumstances and environment, Doc persevered and managed to obtain several degrees - a Bachelors, two Masters, and a Doctorate.
Considering herself to be a modern-day geek, she is the oldest girl of four children. Doc is an educational administrator, author, business owner, and a mother of one son, Grey. Check out her book on Amazon entitled, " Hi, My Name is Grey". The link is in her bio: _so_jazzii_ on Instagram.
Doc is not shy about requiring the acknowledgement of her accomplishment, often verbalizing "heavy on the doctor." Currently residing in Dallas, Texas, she realized she has a natural desire to help people, advocate for education and disability awareness, and self-love for women. You can find various posts she authored encouraging women to embrace freedom from societal rules on beauty by being natural and loving every curve or freckle. Doc believes that women's experiences should be celebrated in hopes that women will share and unify different perspectives in opposition to ridicule. Why hate when you can uplift?
Doc is assertive, uncut, unfiltered and a pioneer of open vulnerability.
