“You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger…” and that she definitely is… Crystal K. Goodman is a writer, wordsmith, and spoken lyricist, but during her days, she keeps her professional presence by being an accountant with KBR. She may be North Carolina Born and Cali-bred, but we know she loves Birmingham. Born in Fayetteville, NC, and raised in Barstow, CA, Crystal is one of the founding members of Birmingham Change Fund. Crystal is also a member of the Birmingham Urban League Young Professionals, and serves as a volunteer with Hands on Birmingham.
Crystal remains inspired by Maya Angelou, because she has worked so many jobs, traveled so many places, and managed to find a way to do something she loves and still share her journey with others.
She recommends that all people read Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
