// OUR INSPIRATION.


Founded in 2019, Inside the Minds. is a magazine stemming from “Tunnel Vision,” a documentary about Bri Betz-White’s final season as a basketball player for the Loyola University Maryland women’s basketball team.

“I wanted my first major project to feature a black woman because of how under-appreciated black women are in society. Not only that, but how women athletes are under-appreciated. Bri embodies the definition of endurance, talent, and mental toughness. My goal for this project inspire young black girls to show them that the life they want is attainable, albeit difficult. There’s beauty in the struggle.” - Ikechukwu Sharpe 



Stemming from Bri’s story, the idea of channeling that same energy of storytelling expanded to highlighting the work other diverse creatives do to their respective fields.
