We had the good fortune of connecting with Elevn St James and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elevn, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
This thought has definitely crossed my mind several times, should I just give up and quit or keeping fighting, then I pick up my phone and or turn on the tv and see another person of color having their joy and or life been destroyed by systems of oppression I get the strength and conviction to keep going!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
