Description
"Part memoir, part manifesto, [this book] explores what it means to come into your own--on your own terms. By age thirty, Elaine Welteroth had climbed the ranks of media and fashion, shattering ceilings along the way. When she became the youngest and only the second Black editor-in-chief in Condé Nast history, Welteroth helped infuse Teen Vogue with social consciousness, amplifying youth voices on key issues and proving there was more to the selfie generation. Yet as a young boss and the only Black woman in the room, she faced the unspoken consequences of being a barrier-breaker across so many intersections. Throughout her life and career, Welteroth has had to contend with the notion that she wasn't enough. As a young girl: not pretty enough, not smart enough. As a mixed race person: not BIa¢k enough, not White enough. As a professional: not old enough, not 'fashion' enough. But now she's had enough of the world telling women they are not enough. In her riveting and timely debut, the groundbreaking journalist unpacks profound lessons on race, identity, power, ambition, and love--from forging her own path as the determined child of an unlikely interracial marriage in small-town California, to finding her voice on the front lines of a modern movement. Welteroth goes beyond the headlines and highlight reels to offer an honest portrait of what success really looks like for a leader who is what Shonda Rhimes calls an FOD: 'First. Only. Different.' Brimming with vulnerability, humor, and hard-earned wisdom, More Than Enough is, fittingly, much more than a memoir. It is a moving affirmation for anyone who's ever faced fear--and persevered anyway."--Dust jacket.
