Quirky, Brown Chicks: Camille, Jazmine and Cheyenne of Pretty Brown and Nerdy
If I had it my way, all of the quirky, brown chicks of the world would come together, become friends and sing kumbaya while listening to Solange and drinking craft beer. Until that day comes, I present to you the Quirky, Brown Chick series. Today I have brought you 3 for the price of 1! Meet Camille, Jazmine and Cheyenne of Pretty Brown and Nerdy.
1. How would you describe your personal style?
Camille
If you’re talking about fashion right now I am going through a bit of a change. I got rid of many of my clothes (about 60% of my wardrobe) so I could adopt the capsule wardrobe trend to my life, I am really tying to minimize the amount of things that I own. As far as my style, I would say some times minimalist, sometimes afro-futurist, sometimes eclectic. I wear a lot of black, grey, olive and purple. When I do mix it up I love to wear prints and switch up my glasses to go with how I am feeling!
Jazmine
I like a variety of different looks. I gravitate more toward the minimalist style with black and white color palettes. Along with alternative fashion. 
Cheyenne
My personal style is kinda just whatever I think looks good at the time. I can dress really feminine at times....but I also like to switch it up with a tomboy style. I think tomboy styles suit me best!


2. What song are you vibing with right now?
Camille
Quirky, Brown Chicks: Camille, Jazmine and Cheyenne of Pretty Brown and Nerdy
Since the video came out I’ve been listening to Alright a lot by Kendrick Lamar, the whole To Pimp a Butterfly album really. I find myself turning up the radio when F*** Up Some Commas by Future or Flex by Rich Homie Quan comes on. (Bryanda's Note: Giiiiirrrrl, me too! Oo Oo Oo-oo)
Jazmine
I'm listening to Lianne La Havas's album Blood on repeat. 
Cheyenne
I really love listening to St Beauty. Right now they’re my everything 

3. Favorite place that you have traveled?

Camille
My the top two places I’ve ever been are Zanzibar, Tanzania and Puerto Rico. I think I’m just really about that ‪#‎IslandLife‬. Fresh coconuts, fish and mangoes really just do it for me.
Jazmine
Favorite place that you have traveled? I've been to a lot of different places but I really liked California when my family went a few years ago. 
Cheyenne
I went to South Korea this summer...and it was the most amazing trip I have ever taken!

4.Favorite pastime?
Camille
Dickin’ around on the internet tbh. Spending time with my love ones, being shady on the internet, just having a good time.
Jazmine

Favorite pastime? My favorite pastime would have to be playing outside with all the kids in the neighborhood when we lived in Florida. The entire block knew each other and it was always fun. 
Cheyenne
My mom doing my hair. (Getting your hair done free...)

5. What is something about you that people wouldn't expect?

Camille
I’m extremely sensitive, I internalize a lot but I think that feeling too much helps me empathize with people easier.
Jazmine
I like heavy metal. 
Cheyenne
That I am really into korean pop music...!

6. Tell us about your YouTube Channel!

Camille
Pretty Brown & Nerdy reflects who we are! The three of us decided to come together to create the content we wanted to see, there aren’t that many black girl nerds out there making youtube videos so why not change that? Our channel focuses on all things nerdy, tv shows, cosplay, movies, comics, anime, gaming and more!
Jazmine
Pretty Brown and Nerdy is fun, quirky, and a place for us to talk about everything we love in nerd culture. It's a place for other PoC and Blerds to come and hopefully we can inspire them.

7. What/who inspires you?
Camille
I am personally inspired by my friends, I have the drive to do things because of the support of my friends. 
Jazmine
I draw inspiration from people I meet throughout life, the placed I've been to, music I listen to, and artist. 
Cheyenne
Quirky, Brown Chicks: Camille, Jazmine and Cheyenne of Pretty Brown and Nerdy
Mostly people who are already in the position I want to be in.


8. What stereotypes about the Black community do you wish you could destroy?
Camille
That black means anything other than the racial group a person belongs to. Blackness is vast and expansive, we are not a monolith and nothing singular can define us. 
Jazmine
That all of us are "thugs" and "hood chicks"
Cheyenne
The "ghetto" and "rachet" stereotypes...

9. Anything else?
