S2 Ep 2: Ajaye Skeene
As the year is coming to a close, which I'm sure most of us are excited about as 2020 was quite the year, I had the privilege of interviewing Ajaye Skeene. Our interview took place at the beginning of the year around March, right when COVID-19 was starting to show face in the news and things were beginning to shut down.  Our second episode of 2020 starts off with a new spin as I have a co-host Blerina and myself co-interviewing Ajaye. We talk about life amid COVID-19, his journey as a professional dancer beginning in Springfield, MA and unfolding in Atlanta and Los Angeles, the ups and downs of his life, lessons he learned, the advice he'd give to others, and his experiences performing in front of large audiences and well-known artists.  Tune in and take a moment to listen to his story.  ****** You can check out Ajaye Skeene on IG: @ajayeskeeneofficial    ******Let us know your thoughts and thank you for listening!! ***Want to check out more?

Ep 6: Missy's Story
In todays episode I get an opportunity to speak to the amazing Missy and we discuss her journey in life with depersonalization. We dive into her hardships, the challenges and frustrations with the current mental health field, and her dreams and goals of bringing a change to a current culture that doesn't support the needs of mental health let alone those diagnosed and/or struggling with depersonalization, all forms of anxiety, depression, etc.  For those that do not know ... Depersonalization is an anxiety-triggered feeling of being cut off from reality. It manifests in various ways but the most common symptoms are: feeling as though you are in some sort of dream state, as though you or the people around you are not real, as though you have become detached from the world; as though you are watching your thoughts, feelings and physical self, from outside of yourself; as though you are not in control of your speech or your physical movements.** So tune in and take a listen. Missy's story is a beautiful example on how important community and/or family support are and how even through our struggles we can perservere
