My name is Tamarah and I am a Software Engineer. That is not all I am. I’m a DIYer, building and renovating around my house. My next project is my Kitchen. Yes, I am also a homeowner. I am not a stereotype and don’t fit into the boxes people think a Black woman fits in.

A open closet. Tamarah is standing in front wearing a white floral dress and holding a green Ryobi brad nailer. Behind her are 3 floating shelves she built. The closet wall, closet door and the trim are a blue/dark grey. The room color is pink and there is a stripe of pink in the middle top inside the closet.

I little bit of fashion and tools

See my profile picture? I built those shelves in the closet! I also added the trim, added the bifold doors and painted/stained everything!
