When Newark, New Jersey, native A’Dorian was 7 years old, her father was murdered while leaving his store. Now grown, the college student wants to give back to local youth who have lived through similar tragedies, which directors Lacey Schwartz and Mehret Mandefro capture in episode five of ESSENCE Black Girl Magic. A’Dorian founded She Wins Leadership Institute, which teaches young Black girls to not only find their voice, but to trust it, and discover the true art of self-love. “The act of self-love isn’t easy,” A’Dorian said. “It takes time. It takes effort. But the more you dedicate time to loving yourself and surrounding yourself by people who are encouraging you to do the same, there is no such thing as a barrier.”
