Episode #005 - "Finding My Way Home"
Pjila’si Nijin-chewamu’gk Lnu Podcast. Welcome to the Pink Lnu Podcast - An Indigenous platform for intersectional stories. Teluisi Amy (my name is Amy), and I'm the host and creator of this show. "Finding My Way Home" is a conversation with guest Mara Grant, sister of the host, Amy Grant. Here, we discuss her journey of self-discovery, including managing two auto-immune diseases (Celiac and Hypothyroidism) and coming to terms with her identity as a "Pink Lnu." Mara shares a revealing story about how a local university treated her during a time of crisis, and how she recovered from that traumatic series of events. We also talk at length about her work as a mental and physical health advocate. M'sit No'kmaq (All My Relations) ❤️💛🖤⠀ Produced by Colin Alexander, Conduit Voice Media.
