Minda Harts, author of You Are More than Magic, Speaks at Uniondale High School

Minda Harts, best-selling and award-winning author of The Memo, TEDx speaker, host of the Secure the Seat podcast, and CEO of The Memo LLC, recently spoke at Uniondale High School. Harts discussed her new book, You Are More than Magic: The Black and Brown Girls’ Guide to Finding Your Voice, which focuses on using the tools you hold to find your route to success at school, work, home and beyond. Afterward, Harts participated in a Question-and-Answer session and was interviewed by a Uniondale High School journalism scholar.

Throughout the talk, Harts shared advice for Uniondale scholars on finding their voice in advocating for themselves as they prepare for college and their future careers. Harts also discussed her path to success and shared that the course is not always linear—that sometimes we experience setbacks, but we must get back up and try again.

"Minda Harts is an important voice in the women’s and girl’s empowerment space,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Monique Darrisaw-Akil. “Our girls need to know that they can accomplish any goal that they set for themselves and that their differences are their strongest assets.”

Harts is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at NYU Wagner and has been featured on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Fast Company, The Guardian, Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and more. In 2020 she was named the Top Voice for Equity in the Workplace by LinkedIn.
