Nicki Minaj Empowers Young Women in Recent Interview with 'TIME'

“If you know you’re great at what you do, don’t ever be ashamed to ask for the top dollar in your field.”

After being named one of the “100 Most Influential People” by TIME and making the cover of the magazine, Nicki Minaj continues to advocate her stand for equality in her video interview with the publication. Throughout her career, Nicki has been known for standing up to racism, misogyny and sexuality. In her interview, she encouraged women to step up and fight for what they deserve as a reflection of their professional worth. She highlighted this by saying, “I would tell women starting out in business, if you know you’re great at what you do, don’t ever be ashamed to ask for the top dollar in your field.” She also mentioned that her collaboration with Beyoncé has had an especial impact in empowering and inspiring young women of every race to own who they are.
