My name is Brandice Sills-Payne.
I'm the Customer Marketing Manager for SmartRecruiters. I identify as:

"I have been running away from labels my entire life. Because I feel like the minute you put yourself in a category, people then decide who you are. When you talk about diversity, it becomes a sort of necessary evil as a path towards progress or towards opportunity. But even all the things I just mentioned as, how I identify, I would have never said that five years ago. Now I've found my own kind of healing and path. I like who I am, and I can embrace it in a completely different way. Which kind of gives me a sense of self identity that feels right for me. But when it comes to large categorizations of people, I think we have to be careful.
