This study examined self-empowerment among women of color in education. I explored the words, themes and concepts that can construct self-empowerment through the use of Action Research methodology and applied an in-depth questionnaire and focus group made up of four women who were racially and ethnically diverse. The study unpacked reoccurring ideas, themes, concepts, and experiences of self-empowerment and how these daily realities and moment-to-moment decisions/experiences affect our daily lives and measures of power, confidence, acceptance, ownership, honesty and self-love. Self-love was revealed to be synonymous with self-empowerment leading to further research questions of a self-love continuum and what occurs when one is lacking this reality in her life.
