Bougie Betty is a web-series about a girl from Harlem who believes that a Master's degree and self-help books will make her more refined like her idol, Michelle Obama.

Nina McKay has been asking herself this question ever since the first time bullies uttered the words "She think, she cute!"

We see that sisterhood, is an important relationship in ones life which can provide the check- and-balance that we all need to be our best.
