There are always hurdles and obstacles on the way to living our dreams. But what happens when those obstacles exist—not because of how skilled you are—but because of the color of your skin?
Today I’m talking with Genesis Amaris Kemp, author of Chocolate Drop in Corporate America: From The Pit To The Palace. She’s sharing her experience in the corporate world as a young woman of color, including overcoming bullying, systemic racism, and oppression. She opens up about her breaking point and how she found the courage to speak up—realizing that if she didn’t stand up for herself, no one else would.
After deciding enough was enough, she created real change for herself and hasn’t looked back!
Genesis and I chat about her drive to help others navigate a system designed to hold them back and her journey of finding the courage to take a stand. This road birthed more than just her book; it sparked a mission to support others dealing with toxic environments. Start listening now!

// About Genesis Amaris Kemp
Genesis Amaris Kemp is a woman of color who said, “Enough is enough,” and is now bolder than ever. She tried to remain quiet, but that didn’t work because no change occurred. Today, she is readapting to the current times and making some life-changing decisions. She is stepping outside of her comfort zone by speaking up, challenging the status quo, and refusing to let limitations placed on her keep her down.
Genesis is the author of Chocolate Drop in Corporate America: From The Pit To The Palace and she desires to encourage others to help those who may not have a voice. She is a trailblazer who wants others to live out their dreams, goals, and visions. If it takes her writing this book to accomplish those tasks, then so be it. We all have been given a wonderful purpose in life. It is up to us to walk it out and live victoriously!
