YOU WANNA DO WHAT?!


Jun 8, 2020

YOU WANNA DO WHAT?! celebrates 3 years! Each episode delivers practical motivation for living, inspiring stories, and useful strategies to do more, want more & be more. 

In today's episode, I invited 4 guests to tell their stories and share their experiences of being Black in America.

  • Dr. Donna Granville, sociologist of race, immigration, and culture
  • Sir Wilkins, a former teacher turned personal trainer and co-host of The Jobber Tears podcast
  • Natalie Charles, Kenyan born, IT Security professional
  • Scott Hale, ambitious entrepreneur and docuseries director

We discuss:

  • Reactions to George Floyd's death
  • Personal stories of racism
  • Collective pain of the Black community
  • How to be a stronger ally and advocate in the community
  • Protecting your mental wellness through self-care and restorative practices
  • Required reading, videos, and resources to educate yourself or others on systemic, institutional and other forms of racism
  • How to unlearn behavior
  • What progress means in our communities

As a Latina and a woman of color born and raised in New York City, I am in solidarity with my brothers and sisters.
