Being a woman isn’t an easy task, yet it’s one I’m not willing give up. This draws my attention to the Black Don’t Crack beau, Gabrielle Union. I call her black don’t crack beau because at 44, Gabrielle Union looks half her age. Not only is she a black don’t crack icon, she is a really strong black woman. Recently she has shown she possesses the dynamic, strong, fighting spirit every black women possess, and for this she has my complete admiration.Gabrielle Union said she was raised to be an independent woman, to stand on her own two feet, and that’s the road she opt to take. Growing up, Gabrielle admits to having self-esteem issues, relating to her appearance, she believed that blonde women were “the ideal of beauty” and “if I looked nothing like that, then I must be ugly.” She grew up longing to be acknowledged for her physical appearance, “I was never looked upon as pretty.”Union recently opened up about her struggle with infertility and failed IVF treatment. She said she has dealt with about 8-9 miscarriages. Union shared this in an exclusive interview for her new book, ‘We Are Going To Need More Wine.’ Opening up about her struggle with infertility and failed IVF treatments, and also being a stepmom to her husband, Dwyane Wade’s 3 kids, has made her a source of motivation to other women, going through the similar issues.When it comes to fashion and style, the only thing this African American actress, with her trademark dimple, has refused to do is age. At 44, and with a great body, it’s hard for her not to look amazing. She gets her inspiration from Instagram images of street style, or people she loves for their inherent dopeness. She is the founder of Flawless hair care and treatment line.WORKS & AWARDS
