My name is LaToya Tavernier, but most people know me as Toya T. I am a Sociology professor, content creator, lifestyle blogger, and brown girl currently living in the Boston area. I started Figure Out Your Life Blog in 2015 to chronicle and share my life and everything I have figured out thus far about who I AM and what makes me HAPPY, in hopes that it might inspire other women of color to do the same. In a world constantly trying to tear us down, it is important that we learn to listen to our inner voices and be our authentic selves every day—unapologetically. More than anything, I want to be a resource to help you to live an authentically happy and healthy life.
