She fights for justice. She reminds us that #BlackLivesMatter — and, yes, all lives, for those who insist on getting it twisted. She beats trolls at their own cyber game. She keeps the water on.
She has a way with words — and especially numbers, for she is a genius. For real. She will unearth her roots by any means necessary. She has been acting up for years. She tells our stories, giving voice to the voiceless and making us look good.
She is fast. She is formidable. She is fierce!
