“J introduces herself and walks us through the awkwardness of the stop-sign. (http://awkwardblackgirl.com) Created by Issa Rae (http://issarae.com)”

Issa Rae began on Youtube with her first web series Awkward Black Girl, She won a Shorty Award for best Web Series & also wrote New York Times Best Seller The Misadventures of

Awkward Black Girl.

She now writes and stars in HBO's Insecure a black-positive show, showing the lifestyle of Issa Rae and friends, though argued this show is unapologetically for the culture, maybe more so the black culture of L.A. the show is a collective of life-experiences from Issa and some of her Co-stars.

She's quoted (loosely) saying "I'm always down to share the nitty-gritty of my journey, I'm still on it."
