YouTube leveled the playing field and gave everyone a platform to speak his or her mind. While some folks have taken to the site to spew ignorance, others have used YouTube to share tips, tricks, and information to improve other people’s lives.

Recently, someone shared a video by Shanel Cooper-Sykes, a self-proclaimed woman’s woman, that talks about 25 habits all women should have. From tips on the value of listening rather than speaking to the virtues of cleanliness, Sykes says that all women should carry themselves in a way that not only demands respect, but also reflects a positive outlook on life.

While I thought her tips fell on the side of common sense and could be applicable to both men and women, it was refreshing to watch another black woman attempting to empower women instead of tearing them down.

Check out Part 1 of her series on the  ’25 Women Habits’ and let us know what you think!
