Episode 48. Serena "Fucking" Kerrigan- SFK, The Queen of Confidence!
Hey Beautiful People of the world! Today's Episode was recorded back in May 2020! Today's Guest: Born and raised in New York City, Serena Kerrigan is a video producer and digital creative specializing in personal brand building, social media strategy, and engaging video content. Serena has four years of hands-on experience from her role as a video producer at Refinery29, overseeing short-form digital content and long-form narratives across several verticals including Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube. From producing some of the top performing series for the brand, Serena has demonstrated her invaluable insight on production of content that targets Gen Z and Millennial audiences. Serena also became one of the faces of Refinery29 through her role as on-air talent, in which she conducted celebrity interviews and starred in several series, both in the studio and on the red carpet. Serena left her role at Refinery29 in early 2020 to expand her personal brand, "SFK, the Queen of Confidence." This title emerged from "Serena Fucking Kerrigan," a persona she created during her freshman year at Duke University as a humorous way to shield against her own insecurities. "SFK," as she later became known, helped Serena grow her self-esteem and the nickname quickly became more than just an alter ego. What started as a made up, separate identity soon evolved into "the Queen of Confidence," a symbol for all women that stands for authenticity, sexual freedom and loving oneself unapologetically. And Serena's brand has caught more than just the attention of her peers. She has collaborated and created content for a myriad of high-power companies, including Air France, Amazon, Google, Bumble and Svedka. In March, Serena observed the changing digital dating landscape and seized an opportunity to create, produce and host the first reality show entirely on Instagram Live: Let’s Fucking Date. Each week, Serena goes on a set-up, blind first date while thousands of her fans and friends watch in real time. Immediately following the date, Serena hosts a live after show, allowing her followers weigh in and discuss what they've just witnessed. This event is often joined by celebrity guests, including Chris Appleton (Jennifer Lopez's hairdresser), Ariana Madix (Vanderpump Rules), Danielle Bernstein (WeWoreWhat), Hunter Mcgrady (Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model) and more. The show has been growing in popularity every week (4K concurrent live views) and has been picked up by the likes of The Today Show, CBNC and Guest of a Guest. Let’s Fucking Date is a clear example of the power Serena has to mobilize her highly engaged fan base, even during times of unprecedented crisis and tumult. Her accomplishments thus far have highlighted her confidence, poise, and drive, and she's only getting started. Enjoy the Show! Connect with SFK: IG: https://www.instagram.com/serenakerrigan/

Episode 47. Turning your Pain into Purpose!
Hello there beautiful people of the universe! Welcome to Shine Brighter with Liz, a podcast on personal growth and lifestyle development! If you don't know me, I'm Elizabeth Danielle Pujadas... or Liz (: Today's episode was a rough one for me ... honestly during the draft I name it as... "Fuck that was rough." I also contemplated on if I should even share it with the world. 1. Because it's super personal and highly vulnerable. 2. ITS SUPER PERSONAL & HIGHLY VULNERABLE. However, I think its important to break the stigmas around mental health. To normalize pain and our emotions. They are all apart of the human condition. I hope that in me sharing my pain you feel less alone. You feel inspired to find the roots of your triggers, to allow yourself to heal and live out your BEST LIFE! You are worth that journey, friend. xoxo, Enjoy the listen, & Keep shining! Liz

Episode 46. I'm Back! Life Update & How I Faced my Greatest Fear During Meditation!
Hey there beautiful people! It's been a minute... or more like ... a couple of months or so. ( I also recorded this episode a month ago) LOL I took a step back from creating content because I needed to recharge. It's so vital to listen to what your body and soul are asking for. I honor myself by giving myself these boundaries. After an incredible mediation, I realized I had the desire to share about this experience. I thought should I write a IG post about it? Should I go live and talk about the power of meditation and what I had just experienced? I quickly realized... Girl you have a podcast that would love some LOVE right now. So I hopped off the floor and ran to my room to vent/ share. I wanted to make sure I gave some context on where I've been and what I've been up too. I hope you enjoy!

Brownsville Bred chronicled Elaine’s true New York Puerto Rican coming-of-age story— Set in the tough projects of Brownsville Brooklyn, NY, in the 1980’s, Elaine’s story brought resilience, love and laughter to a world filled with crime, heroine-addiction, AIDS, and welfare.—Her Off Broadway debut brought critical acclaim.

An accomplished producer, Elaine was the first to license an interstitial series (her co-production of Gran’pa Knows Best) to the HBO Latino Network. She received a 2016 Telly award for her co-production of PBS/World Channel series, The Smallest Step. Elaine co-created, co-wrote, produced and directed the comedy web series, Reasons Y I’m Single (now on Amazon Prime).

Today I had a conversation with God. Well i tried to talk to him and he told me to be quite and let him speak instead. Not surprised i get that often. So i listened. He told me to stop trying so hard. To try less and let him guide me where he needs me to go. So i said okay, lead me to where you need me and I will follow. He spoke into my heart for me to begin having conversation with the homeless and bring faith into their hearts. To remind them that the best is yet to come and that this is only a moment in their lives, that THIS TOO SHALL PASS.

I asked him if he felt comfortable recording an episode for my podcast and he agreed.Let this be a reminder to all that everyone has a story and we all deserve to be heard! ❤️
