Fierce Girl Friday: Ciera' Harris

Fierce Girl Friday: Ciera’ Harris

Happy Friday! It’s time to meet our Fierce Girl of the week.  We’re bringing to you Fierce Girl Friday: Ciera’ Harris.  Let’s find out more about this amazing Lupus Warrior.

My name is Ciera’ Harris and I’m from Charlotte, NC. I am the founder of Black Girl Thriving, a lifestyle brand dedicated to the empowerment of Black women and girls. I sell merchandise online and host events locally. 
Since the age of 16 I have been living with lupus. I am currently 27. Lupus has been an ongoing battle but I refused to let it beat me. Since being diagnosed I went on to graduate high school with perfect attendance from K-12th grade, I graduated college early with 2 degrees, and I went on to complete a master’s degree. You may see me take breaks frequently but I never quit! 
I recently quit my job teaching and became a full-time entrepreneur.

That in itself has been…interesting, to say the least. Oh and it’s been hard! Last weekend I published an ebook detailing how I balance everything in my life called “Thriving Through It All.” It’s a very personal story where I dive deep into my lupus journey. You can purchase it on my site –



BGT's Founder Ciera' Harris released her first book, in which she discusses how she manages to wear multiple hats all while battling Lupus and maintaining relationships. Ciera' believes in NO EXCUSES - in life you will have obstacles, it's all about how you handle them! This e-book includes journal prompts that promote self-reflection, self-care, and goal setting. Ciera' also included a daily planner template that she created and actually uses.

My goal in life is to inspire and help as many people as I possibly can. I don’t mind sharing my story and being transparent because I know it may be able to help someone. I want people to know that they are not alone 💜
