Hannah Giorgis will write about the intersection of race, class, gender, style, and culture for BuzzFeed’s style section as the site continues its quest to cover anything that resonate with millennials.

“I’m thrilled to be dedicating more time to thoughtful, nuanced coverage of all the things that give color and texture to our cultural landscape,” Ms. Giorgis said in an email to the Observer.

Ms.Giorgis currently writes about race, gender and culture as a contributing writer to The Guardian’s US opinion section and has written posts for BuzzFeed as a contributor, including pieces on Rihanna and East African feminism.

Or, as Ms. Giorgis describes herself on her blog, Ethiopienne:

 

nappy-headed 23-year-old daughter of ethiopian/eritrean immigrants

attempting to navigate diasporic Blackness with a US passport and an awkward Amharic tongue.

voracious reader. writer of essays, letters, poetry. student of Audre, bell, Patricia, Angela, Assata, Alice, June, and countless unnamed women of color whose backs bear the brunt of western “progress.”

unapologetic black feminist. constantly trying to figure out what & how to (un)learn.

[i post silly things too. and food. and sometimes even silly foods]

Sounds like an ideal mix for a BuzzFeed writer.
