Solomon says, “I was always afraid of speaking up and offending people with my thoughts and opinions and saying no because I was afraid of making them uncomfortable and being called a Bitch. But as soon as I heard someone call me a “Closet Bitch”, which is a person who’s afraid to be themselves and strong in front of people, I said, I might as well do what makes me happy and speak my truth because I’m going to get labeled one way or the other. I rather be labeled a strong willed and powerful woman who doesn’t take anybody’s crap. Society usually calls this kind of woman a bitch, so I decided to give it an acronym, B.I.T.C.H. (a Bold Individual who Thinks Confidently of Herself). Hi five’s and fist taps to all my B.I.T.C.H.’s out there!
