I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my new series, “Must-Follow Minorities: Amplifying Voices, Empowering Change.” Each month, I’ll spotlight incredible individuals who are making a significant impact in their communities and beyond.

These inspiring voices are driving change, fostering collaboration, and showing us the power of unity and diversity.

In a world where representation matters, amplifying minority voices is crucial. It brings diverse perspectives to the forefront, fosters inclusion, and drives social progress. These individuals are not just influencers but change-makers who inspire and lead by example.

So, without further ado, here are some must-follow Christian minorities who are making an impact in various fields:

Quantrilla Ard, Ph.D.
