MEmoticons: the mini ME, the many MEs and the Real ME

By Desiree Beekharry
Many people…young till whatever age… are trying to go through this 1 life and be who they want to be and what they want to be. Whatever that is…and basically, try to F*** other peoples’ expectations, what other people think and live their lives based on their individual needs and desires. Family, culture, society, the economy…all seem to have more control on what each of us should be and do. These podcasts give hope to those who are looking for the ME. To let them know that there is no perfect recipe, no right or wrong way…just a way. Podcasts made under COVID 19 conditions are the best!
