About me


My name is Pearl Morttey. I am eighteen years old. I am a recent graduate of Fern Creek High and will be attending Centre College this fall. I named my blog awkward black girl because that is my identity. I am quirky, funny, passionate, and curious. However, a lot of people don’t often associate being black with being awkward. I break stereotypes and barriers.I know how it is like to be an outsider. Therefore, sympathizing and being an advocate for marginalized groups in society is what I am passionate about.  Follow my journey as an awkward black girl and figure out what makes me tick in this world.
