Bettina’s work includes narrative shifting for stigmatized communities. She helps her community reclaim and write their own narratives to shift the society’s fears. Her work addresses internalized oppression and microaggressions infiltrating the minds and bodies of people of color by slowly and steadily attacking and rebutting the intention of the majority culture to continue to deny communities of color desperately needed resources and attention. Bettina also highlights the accomplishments of Birmingham City Schools, its students, and its faculty.
