8. International Women's Day w/ Dr. Manouchka Pierre
For International Women's Day, I have a "girl power" conversation with Dr. Manouchka Pierre. Haitian-born, New York raised and Florida educated, she shares about her evolution of being a leader in the education space. She recently moved to Bahrain as an educator, now serving as a high school principal, and her current work is still shaping young women across the world. When I asked what's her favorite quote that guides her on her journey and she responded, "Real Queens adjust other Queen's crowns," I knew she was the perfect guest for this episode.
