"Yeah, you mentioned narushima say, which is one of Bernice's children. And I actually had a chance to talk to him as well. He kind of share it with me what he remembers with growing up with his mom and, you know, watching her dance in the dynamic of how that impacted their household and he was still fairly young, so he doesn't remember too much, but he definitely remembers watching his mom practice. She practice really all the time. We had moved to that house 28 12 south Hobart board frame house and it was only a two bedroom, but there was a power. This is where the house was built in those days. The pilot was writing the front to the east to the left of you and my dad and then created that as a bedroom and it had a lot of room into it. I know she would practice her premieres and owner tools and it would do that. I guess as much as two little dumb 5 and four year old boys would allow her to do it, you know? It just feels like she was born to do this, especially for her to be able to rise and be a star at such a late age, learning such a technical form of dancing. How did Bernice end up in the spotlight? Are there any notable performances that come to mind? Yeah. She frequently danced with and that was Graham Johnson. And he started with the school. Probably roughly around the same time she did. And they quickly became dance partners and he was the male age, she was the female. And so they appeared in a lot of productions. Together. One of them was a little China figure in which Graham Johnson is this statue, and then these two maids who are going around the room, cleaning up, dust them, and he becomes this passionate lover. So it's a dance that created and choreographed by the company by the first Negro classic ballet. So that was a favorite one for critics and apparently for audiences as well. They danced in Cinderella together, which was also the choreography that they used was the one that record created. They danced in one that Graham Johnson, choreographed later on called raisin cane, which takes place in the south in a sugarcane farm and the various trials and tribulations of a figure as part of that. Another one called southern

"And she was also a seamstress and was a homemaker with three children. She had two boys and a girl, and it seems that she and her husband didn't have much money, but she wanted her only daughter, Angela. To have that, that she could dance ballet. And she wanted specifically that she could dance ballet and not other forms of dance that African Americans were commonly pushed towards. And so when she heard that there was a studio opening up, not far from her neighborhood, she looked it up. And she arrives at the studio and the teacher whoever that was said that while perhaps she'd be better off studying tap dance or jazz dance down the street. So it was a very clear brush off. Was it normal for black women to continually be turned away from pursuing ballet in the 1940s? Yes, there were essentially no opportunities at all. The opportunities that began to arise for black women in ballet are almost entirely a post World War II phenomenon. So when we're talking about the 1940s, there were essentially none, neither in Los Angeles, nor in virtually anywhere else in the country. In the 1950s and 60s, we start to see more opportunities and then the increase in the 1970s and 80s, but as misty Copeland has pointed out numerous times in her writings, even those opportunities were pretty slim. I had moments of doubting myself and wanting to quit because I didn't know that there would be a future for an African American woman to make it to this level. Many black ballerinas, the point that out that growing up, they're often and that's true today that the pointed towards, well, why don't you do modern dance or jazz dance wouldn't that be better than ballet? And that seems to be exactly what happened to Bernie's Harrison's daughter. Lucky for Bernice Harrison, she ran into a man who wanted to create an opportunity for black girls for them to learn classical ballet since they hadn't had an opportunity before. And that man happened to be Joseph rickard. He was a choreographer. He was a dancer. And something must have had to have stirred within him and said, you know, this just is not right. And so right there, rickard said, in his memoirs, which are today at the Huntington library, he wanted to create a school where that young black girl could dance, and that was in 1946. Joseph was also a recent migrant from Michigan. And we know that his older sister, Gretchen, was learning ballet, and he used to watch her dance, he learned about ballet really, at least introduction, a little from her. And then he comes out to Hollywood, he wants to get into films, he wants to act. And when he comes across nijinsky's Hollywood ballet, this dance studio in Hollywood, he immediately takes up the opportunities that he can study with nijinska, the sister, the famed Polish Russian dancer. Nijinsky. So that's a formative period in his life. And during that time, he's a male boy, the paramount studios, you know, he's trying to get some odd jobs to make ends meet. And so to be honest, financially, he was a no position to start this studio. He had no major backer. If you look at virtually all ballet schools, at some point along the line, they have to have a major backer or backers. And he didn't have that. And yet rickard was determined to open a school for girls like Bernice's daughter, which would later become the first Negro classical ballet. He pulled some friends together, both at paramount studios, and elsewhere, and through hook and by crook, just stringing things together. He managed to open the school in a band and ballroom at the corner of Jefferson in Normandy. Hal Bernice Harrison went from enrolling her daughter in classes to becoming the first black cream of ballerina. That's after the break. Hey there. My name is Jody African, and I'm the host of a new podcast from Ted called good sport.

We're calling on the ports of Long Beach in Los Angeles to end new fossil fuel build out, including liquefied natural gas, or LNG. LNG is a dangerous fossil fuel that emits methane, a potent greenhouse gas that accelerates global warming and contributes to climate change. LNG also emits air quality pollutants, which are responsible for more than 200,000 premature deaths globally every year. Fossil fuel air pollution also contributes to above average childhood asthma rates and increased respiratory emergency room visits.

Okay, Kenneth. So Joseph mees Bernice and shortly after opens this new dance studio off of pure want to create opportunities for black dancers. How exactly did he go about gathering other people and making this opportunity known to black and brown people? When he opened the school at the corner of Jefferson and Normandy, it was in a largely African American neighborhood. His goal was to make that school available to as many black children as possible, who wanted to learn classical ballet. And that meant dancing on plant or on point on the toe. In the beginning, he sent out handbills and put up posters. He put the posters up in schools and gymnasiums and record stores, anywhere he could interest young people and trying to join ballet.

"Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is romanica. To kick off the new year, this month we're talking about rebels with a cause. Women who broke rules that were meant to be broken. Were you a student athlete growing up? Have you ever thought about the laws that allowed you to participate in these sports? What about the ability to report incidents of sexual harassment and institutions? Today, we're talking about the godmother of title 9, a woman who is fed up with gender discrimination that she faced and decided to do something about it. Meet Bernice Sandler Bernice Resnick was born on March 3rd, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York. Her parents were Jewish immigrants from Germany and Russia, who ran a women's sportswear store in New Jersey. When she was born, Bernice's name was intended to be barrel, but it was written incorrectly on her birth certificate. Ultimately, her family settled on calling her bunny. From a young age, bunny was acutely aware of the injustices that girls and women faced in American society. At school, she was told she couldn't run a slide projector or be a crossing guard because of her gender. Undeterred, she continued on to study psychology at Brooklyn college. And later earned a master's degree in clinical psychology from the city college of New York. In 1952, bunny married radio producer Gerald Sandler, and the couple had two children. Bunny was a qualified applicant for many psychology positions, but she struggled to find work in her field. As a result, she took up work in other fields, including being a preschool teacher, a guitar instructor, and a secretary. In 1969, bunny returned to education and earned a doctorate in counseling from the university of Maryland. Following her graduation, she applied for one of the several open faculty positions at the university. Despite her many qualifications for the position, she was rejected. Bunny learned from one of her male colleagues that her sex was the reason she was rejected from the role. He said, you come on too strong for a woman. When bunny applied for another open position, the hiring manager rejected her solely for being a mother, saying it would make her an unreliable worker. Prior to this rejection, bunny had never identified with the feminist movement. Now, she understood feminism in contrast to the sex based discrimination she was facing as a working woman. Funny began to research how these institutions were legally justifying their discriminatory practices. At first, she assumed they must be breaking a law. But quickly it became apparent that many policies existed which allowed and perpetuated this form of discrimination. Bunny investigated former examples of activism they gave rise to federal anti discrimination policy. In the Civil Rights Act of 1964, she was disappointed to find that it did not prohibit sex discrimination in education. But eventually, bunny came upon one of president Lyndon B. Johnson's executive orders from the year 1965. This order, executive order one one two four 6 forbade federal contractors from employment discrimination in race, color, national origin or religion. A footnote from 1968 revised the order to include sex. A lightbulb went off for bunny given the most universities had federal contracts. This meant they were forbidden from sex based discrimination. With help from the director of the federal contract compliance the Department of Labor, bunny developed a legal complaint against higher institutions. Bonnie also collaborated with the women's equity action league to file a class action complaint against 250 American colleges and universities. Bunny's actions caught the attention of Congress. With bunnies help representative Edith green held the first congressional hearings on sex discrimination in education. Representative Patsy mink took up the mantle and drafted a bill addressing sex discrimination that passed in the house. As it moved to the Senate, it continued to gain traction. It passed and became known as title 9 of the education amendments act of 1972. The statute is short and to the point, it reads no person in the United States shall on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in. Be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. This subsequently barred universities and other organizations from discriminating on the basis of sex in areas, including but not limited to admissions and employment. It granted women a right to participate in athletics and to report sexual harassment. After the passage of title 9, bunny continued her advocacy for equality of the sexes. She dedicated herself to learning more about rates of sexual harassment and sexual violence on campuses. And worked to educate campus communities and prospective students alike on these issues. In 2019, bunny passed away, she was 90 years old. Bunny's trajectory from underemployed an overqualified to a pioneer of title 9 reminds us the importance of noticing and calling out the discrimination we see around us..

Day 346 of The Bible in a Year: Paul Appeals to Ceasar
"Day 346 acts 25 galatians four 5 and 6 and proverbs chapter 29 versus 15 through 17. The acts of the apostles, chapter 25 Paul appeals to Caesar. Now, when festus had come into his province after three days, he went up to Jerusalem from caesarea. And the chief priests and the principal men of the Jews informed him against Paul, and they urged him, asking as a favor to have the man sent to Jerusalem, planning an ambush to kill him on the way. Fastest replied that Paul was being kept at cesarea and that he himself intended to go there shortly. So said he, let the men of authority among you go down with me. And if there was anything wrong about the man, let them accuse him. When he had stayed among them not more than 8 or ten days, he went down to caesarea, and the next day he took his seat on the tribunal and ordered Paul to be brought. And when he had come, the Jews had gone down from Jerusalem, stood about him, bringing against him many serious charges which they could not prove. Paul said in his defense, neither against the law of the Jews, nor against the temple, nor against Caesar, have I offended at all. But festus, wishing to do the Jews a favor said to Paul. Do you wish to go up to Jerusalem, and there be tried in these charges before me? But Paul said, I am standing before Caesar's tribunal, where I ought to be tried. To the Jews I have done no wrong as you know very well. If then I am a wrongdoer and I have committed anything for which I deserve to die, I do not seek to escape death. But if there is nothing in their charges against me, no one can give me up to them. I appeal to Caesar. Then festus, when he had conferred with his counsel answered, you have appealed to Caesar. To Caesar, you shall go. Festus consults king Agrippa. Now, when some days had passed, Agrippa the king and Bernice arrived at caesarea to welcome festus. And as they stayed there many days, festus laid Paul's case before the king, saying there was a man left prisoner by Felix, and when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews gave information about him, asking for sentence against him. I entered them that it was not the custom of the Romans to give up anyone before the accused met the accusers face to face, and that opportunity to make his defense concerning the charges laid against him. When, therefore, they came together here, I made no delay, but on the next day took my seat on the tribunal and ordered the man to be brought in. When the accusers stood up, they brought no charge in his case of such evils as I supposed, but they had certain points of dispute with him about their own superstition and about one Jesus who was dead, but whom Paul asserted to be alive. Being at a loss how to investigate these questions, I asked whether he wished to go to Jerusalem and be tried there regarding them. But when Paul had appealed to be kept in custody for the decision of the emperor, I commanded him to be held until I could send him to Caesar. And the grippa said to festus, I should like to hear the man myself. Tomorrow said he, you shall hear him.

"Listeners, I look forward to interviewing all of my guests. To be honest, I have been especially looking forward to this conversation with Bernice chau because she is all about helping Asian Americans advance past the bamboo ceiling, whatever you want to call it. And so first of all, I want to welcome you to my show Bernice and I'm so glad to be able to finally talk to you. Thanks for having me. Would you care to enlighten me how you found me? Yes, I actually found you through LinkedIn. I always follow API thought leaders on LinkedIn. It's such a great place to kind of keep up with the news, see what the community is doing. And your name just kept popping up. I saw you started interviewing all these incredible guests, including melee tau the donut princess, which is a friend of mine. And I was listening to the episode and I just was so engaged that I kind of went down your list of podcasts and I thought, oh, it'd be really wonderful to reach out to you. You know, that's just a reason to encourage me to keep doing stuff on LinkedIn because for a long time, I had my own networks and it's like, I'm not looking for another job. I don't need other people. And after I retired from my passenger job and I took over all of my podcasting responsibilities, it just dawned on me one day that it would make sense to use as many social media platforms as I could. And so just having you reach out to me brings underscored like see, otherwise, you'll never meet each other. Exactly. And I honestly think maybe it's not the most powerful social network platform today, but it will be. Now, why do you think that? I just think that your career is so incredibly important. I know we'll talk about this later, but visibility wise is such a good way to be seen, especially if you're an Asian American, you don't know how to humble brag or you're not being talked about in those rooms. It's a place for you to be a thought leader. It's a place that your boss, your boss's Friends, old colleagues, can see the work that you're doing and know to promote you or to get you into a job. Well, speaking of jobs, tell us what your current position is and who you're working for. Absolutely. So I am the head of integrated creative at an advertising agency in Los Angeles called zambezi. I work on Google Bridgestone L 84 and Under Armour's clients. Okay, and zambezi is an African word, I think it is for a bull shark. Tell our listeners about it. Yeah, so the cofounder is actually worked at widen Kennedy, and at that time they were working with Nike and a certain person called Kobe Bryant and Kobe reached out to Chris rye who's left cofounder and was like, hey, we should start an advertising agency. And Chris asks his girlfriend at the time, now wife Jean, and she was like, yeah, let's do it. And so they started this advertising agency with Kobe Bryant and 8 years ago. They actually bought it from Kobe Bryant. Oh, interesting. So you have been in advertising and marketing pretty much your whole career. I was reading a little bit of your bio, you started off at the art center college of design, I find that fascinating, 'cause I don't normally equate people who are into marketing and advertising with actual artists. But you had an artist background. Yeah, so I was always into drawing and art growing up. I was definitely more in that space, but being an Asian, I was never taught that there was a career there. And I also had an opportunity to get a scholarship at academy of art in San Francisco and Stanford, my junior year. So I got to see what the two different colleges look like. And I really gravitated to people in the art space because of the way they thought, the way they looked at the problem. And my sister, who's ten years older than me, her boyfriend, which was 5 years older than her, his sister, which was a couple of years older than him. She was this boss woman. She had two kids. She was the breadwinner, and she went to art center. She had a design background in graphic design, and this is pre Internet, pre developed LinkedIn Internet. It was kind of basic Internet. And so I was just kind of interviewed her. I was like, where did you go to school? She said art center as she's like, what did you study? It was graphic design. And I just was like, check, check, check. I'm moving down to Southern California. I'm going to go to art center. I'm going to go graphic design. I'm going to be a boss woman like her. So that's where art center kind of came in. I don't think I would have known otherwise. So I do think representation being able to present your job to other communities is incredibly important because I wouldn't have known about this if I didn't meet someone like her. What I keep hearing in your story that you've already shared a little bit and then reading about it online is so much of your own biography has, I don't know which comes first chicken to the egg, but definitely there's a parallelism. What you just shared about this mentor and learning about her and interviewing her and sparking ideas that you otherwise wouldn't have had, it has led to not only other landing places for you, job wise, but at some point you hatched this idea to reach out to other Asians in advertising and it didn't launch very well, but then it has. So can you share a little bit about that because I think that's great background to understand the book that you co authored recently? Yeah, so being in the advertising industry for about 17 years, I started realizing that I was nearly one of one in a lot of groups and a lot of verticals. I didn't see other people that look like me as a woman, as a person of color, as an Asian woman. I just didn't see many people with my background. And I knew that there was challenges here because of how I was being seen. There's a lot of times I'll be in a group and I'll be presenting ideas and they'll be like, oh, that's so cute. And I'm like, there's nothing cute about my idea. Or I'll be in a review and they'll be like, oh, you are kind of quiet. You need to speak up more. And I was like, I don't think I'm a quiet person. And so I started seeing that there could be a little bit of bias based on what I look like. I was also asked if I can present well, and I was like, why wouldn't I be able to present well? Why are you questioning if I can speak? And so these are kind of things that are playing in my head because I started seeing my colleagues who are primarily white males in this industry, especially the creative vertical. And they were not being asked this questions that I was. They didn't have to prove themselves time and time again. And so I was looking around for another group because I saw all these wonderful communities for blacks, Hispanics, indigenous, within the advertising community, but I didn't see anything for the API community. And especially the specific cultural struggles, I was dealing with. And so I thought it would be a really good idea because it was the first time I worked with maybe a handful of Asians, which you'd be kind of surprised because you would think in Los Angeles there will be a lot more agents. Oh yeah. And I was like, let's do something. Let's start a club and let's start a community. There was so much excitement for the very first meeting. We all got together. We thought about it. And then by the second and third meeting, there was all these excuses on why not to do it. And that was particularly because we did not feel comfortable making space for ourselves. We were afraid of offending someone of being exclusionary. Also, why do we deserve to have this? Was a really big thing. And now I think about it. I'm like, that is ridiculous. Why were we making excuses? Even before starting something. And I think it's the whole cultural notion of getting in trouble rocking the boat. And so it wasn't until 2021 where the pandemic was full steam, and there was all this API hate. And I was feeling all these feelings about, where do I belong?

"From a place of wanting the best for you. Do they know what's always the best for you? Probably not considering we're in a different world. But I think that is where it's coming from. So I guess last question for you, Bernie. If you do have a nosy parent, especially as the holidays roll in. What's one tip to kind of get them off their back about their relationship your relationship status? Oh, just imagine hypothetically speaking I have a very you know the thing is for me it's easy. Okay, well, because you know in China, you can say whatever because they don't have social media, they don't have you can fake a lot of things. I love you happy. They carry true. They can not cross check. They can't you send a picture. Oh, I'm with this guy. It's like, you survived one holiday the next holiday you break up? It's easy, you know? She had your first no big deal. Yeah, just survived one. Partner, I think we should start that service. Hire a boyfriend for the holidays. Exactly. That exists. Your photo will Photoshop the band. It's $25. I've had a dog too at a dog. Exactly. Did it you ate you like didn't correct your grandfather father for thinking that like mojo is your kid, not your grandfather passed away thinking that I was married with a son, and that's oh my God. And nobody corrected him. They were like, yeah. My son being a fur ball, but he is a dog. But my grandpa says something to my dad like, how's her rambunctious son or something like that? My dad's like, good. It's a good battle. I just not the truth either. Sometimes for our grandparents generation. Let's just keep them in the bubble. Right. They were like, at least they die happy, you know? Like you know exactly. So Bernice for people who want to see you either live in person or online. Where is a good place for them to find out more about you? Awesome. Yeah, so I put a lot of my schedule shows and some of the contents on Instagram. It's at Bernie's comedy. And then I talk about cultural stuff on TikTok is also at Bernie's comedy. I am doing a tour. So I'm taking the RV from Seattle drive down the coast into San Francisco LA San Diego. So on my website, I will list all the shows and tour schedules. Bernie Sanders at that time. We are totally gonna beat roll through San Francisco. Oh, you okay. I'll hit you both soon..

"And Bernie's you talking about your parents being so happy now, 'cause they're finally focusing on themselves. That makes you so happy. So that's like such a win win situation. So I really feel like we can all take that stand and say, I'm gonna focus on my own happiness first. My very last takeaway is the more we can study about other cultures and how they view dating love and sex. The more it puts a different perspective on how we view our own lives. So I really hope that this conversation was able to shed some light for some of our listeners on what they're going through and maybe some new epiphanies or learnings because we can always learn from each other. And we can just keep this conversation going all the time. Just to add really quick, I think you touch something really important that, you know, the stuff that you draw with being single. There's nothing wrong with being in a relationship. It's funny that you're getting food for being engaged. That's hilarious. We a lot of times make our identity around a relationship. Either being in a relationship or not being in one, and I feel like everything else in life, it's a season. And things change. It's not that you're always going to be single. And if you're in a relationship, you may become single again. I think it's how can you be you? And adapt to those different stages. And there's positives and negatives in every stage of life. I think as someone that's now in a relationship, I love being with my partner and being so happy with him, but sometimes I'm like, oh, I just wish I had that Friday night that I could do nothing. And veg out that I used to have like all that flexibility. So I think there's always a positive and negative to everything and it's up to us to not just get bogged down in the negatives. For sure. So Bernice, what did you learn from us? What are your takeaways from us? So much to take away in the sense of because for me, this whole culture, I mean, I really resonate with what you were saying with the more we learn other culture, the more we have perspective and then the thing is about accepting all this normal, right? I think the part is we're getting into a world where more and more of what's right what's wrong. What's black and what's the right. And then the thing if we're really trying to create an understanding and then I feel like we're all one and aware, there's different ways we should support there are normal weather traditional or new yeah, so that's number one. Should the other thing that came up? Oh, what Julie were saying the identity? I feel like sometimes we mix labels with our identity. We are associated ourselves with all kinds of labels or single or in a relationship, I'm Asian, and then I'm like, you know, I'm a straight I'm gay. We a social are identity with the labels, but in fact, it's really about being who we are because there are times you might lose that label and then you don't want to lose your identity. And I feel like so well put. I think that's what I also think there needs to be holidays and events for a single people. It isn't fair that you give all these gifts and buddy to everyone else. If you don't have a single day. Good. Shopping, but it's all shopping. The other big takeaway to wrap this up though is, you know, it's usually not coming from a bad place when your parents are really in your business. That's true. It's coming.

"They had a lot of fun. Nowadays, they're taking pictures like having like love on The Rock, you know? I was at your picture, I was on your picture later. It's like oh my God. The dance that you TikTok dance is a great what? Yeah. It was sudden me. My dance doesn't go nearly as popular as theirs. And so obviously. I love it. I feel like a rebirth. Yeah, ray burst. And I feel like they have a new understanding of this happiness. It doesn't have to be the same pass as everybody else. And then they start to accept my own way of living. So that's very beautiful. I think that's like the nail of the head. That's where it comes from is that I think a lot of times parents think that you'll be happy this way and they really just want to make sure. But I feel like especially as we're at Thanksgiving to it's a lot of people dread going home for the holidays, you know, because they're like that inevitable question of, are you seeing anyone or, you know, like, why are you still single? And it's coming from this place of wanting to help, but it's basically doing the exact opposite. Totally. Absolutely. So while we kind of glazed over now glazed, glossed over, is that the term? Anyway? Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving and donuts and Turkey. So we kind of glossed over the term of a show, which literally translates to leftover woman. Bernice, can you tell us when was the first time you heard about this term? And what was your reaction? What was the context in which you found out? Okay, I feel like I heard of it when I was in China. I heard it before I was 30. And at a time, I almost feel like I don't know. I'm trying to remember, right? First I was just feel like when you were in that culture, you're almost not surprised. You're almost like your cousin, like, 16, and then you will cause someone odor is like, yeah, like at a time, just because 30 is a hella old. When you were young and you feel like, yeah, I hope I'm like married when I'm 30, whatever, right? So I wasn't surprised..

"And so when I got out, that a relationship might be like, okay, I just want to first have fun. And I also want you establish a quieter of like, I don't want to say losers anymore. I want to make sure that the next person I met a standard and also I can be authentic of who I am. Yeah, Bernice, I feel I feel like I'm already having all these lightbulbs go off in my head because you're helping me process also my early adulthood. And it makes so much sense because in Chinese culture, you don't grow up with validation. So when you do get validation, it becomes really uncomfortable. And what Chinese people love to do is they love to when they see you, they love to tell you how you're different from the last time they saw you. You got taller, you got shorter, you got fat or you were never just right. You're always like something about you is off. It's like Jewish parents too. There we go. That's why we get along so well. So I kind of make sense that when you do when you're trying to work through your values and your standards, you're like, is this just basic, good human behavior? This is person actually like me and I should like the back. Right, exactly. I feel like one of our community members whose Asian said, you are basically told don't ever date, and then it's like, where am I drinking? Why don't our families and, you know, everyone understand that there's a lot that happens in between the two. How did you kind of deal with being back single after the 5 year relationship? And now entering probably like territory of being in this quote unquote older bucket leftover stage. I just feel so lucky that that period of time I am in America. I can't imagine if I lived in China at that time because in China also like strangers can get into a business..

"I still remember when I turned 25 and I went back to China to Beijing to visit my family. And I remember my little cousin joking that I was now a leftover woman. She's like, you're leftovers now. When you turn 25 at 25, I was single in 25, living my best life is she was like, you're left over now. My little cousin, she was like 16 or 15 at the time. I couldn't believe it, and I didn't know what that term meant during that time, but now for sure, you know, my whole family talks about it. So Bernice, who's our guest for this episode. Did a bit all about the leftover woman that phenomenon in China. But who is Bernice, she is in her late 30s, curly lives outside of Seattle, sort of, I don't even know where kimono island nobody knows. Sounds exotic. Originally from China, we're in China Bernie's. You know, it's from Wuhan. How did you explain where that is? Yep. She is engaged and she's a comedian and you know your bit, maybe we should just play a little bit when we post this on our social media was so wonderful the way you kind of explained it. But it is a real thing in China, even though people joke about it, that when I was 25, that was kind of the cutoff that you're single and over 25 years showing you. But now if you're 30, right? They kind of push back the age a little bit. So. That's just not realistic. You're just so whatever. Right, yeah, you don't even know what the hell is going on. But they push back the age, which I do appreciate but 30 is still pretty young. But let's just go in and talk about this with this idea of the leftover woman means..

"Bring yourself joy and you are in control of that. But we do have a gift for all of you for Thanksgiving. We do. We do it again. And it's not Thai sorry. I can't mail pies out to all of you. Well, it's against health regulations. The reason why we're not doing it clearly. So we hope you're listening to this before Thanksgiving because starting Black Friday. We will be rereleasing our fighting your person program. This was a very popular program we released a few months ago. The people who were part of this last cohort are just finishing up the programs, giving a space to welcome new members into the program. It is a 6 to 12 week program. You go at your own pace, but we've noticed from this last couple of people either take 6 weeks or a little bit longer, that's up to you. The entire program shepherds you along into finding your person. Julie and I have both use the same methodology to find our people. At least our people today, and that we're happy with and we feel the need to share this with everybody else. So that is our gift to you. We're launching this on Black Friday and it's going to be live from Black Friday, which is the 26th all the way to the 30th of November. So it's not that many days that we're opening up the program for you all to sign up for it. And then we will be closing cart midnight on the 30. And midnight PST one 30th. And again, it's just UA and I so we do have to limit the amount of people. I think the amount we had last time, 50 people was perfect. We were able to have really good group calls that weren't too crowded. We were able to kind of help shepherd people through and check in on people as they're doing the program. Honestly, I think the biggest gift I got this season was seeing the progress that people made. The last check in for some of the people that have made it all the way through, we asked on a scale of one to ten. How good are you feeling about finding your person? And a lot of the responses a bit like 8 9 ten. This is freaking amazing and just, you know, like, feeling that way and understanding, I think a lot of people either identify the real root cause of what was going on for them or got more clear on what was going on for them. And that's really the deeper work and of course we do all the stuff of how to navigate dating apps and meet new people in real life. It's really a breath of material. I really believe it is our best material we've ever created. So I'm super excited that we're getting the opportunity to share it with more people for Black Friday. It's very much related to this episode too because it's all about taking control of your story and your narrative. And our guest today Bernice basically respond this word left over and she made it her own and created her own narrative around it. So we hope that you all can change your narrative too, like Julie and I were able to do and you can find out more about this program by going to finding your person dot com. That's it. Very simple. We will be sending this out to people on our wait list only, so.

"And you have no one to answer to, right? There's always good at every situation or you can curl up and read a book or whatever maybe. And I think comparison is the thief of joy. I do love that quote because it's really easy to get sucked into what you should be doing or what others are doing instead of just appreciating what you have and ultimately, Thanksgiving is about appreciation and gratitude. So along the same lines, maybe you prepare three things that you got to do this year because you're single. And then that's your answer back. Oh, yes, I am single this year. I am so thankful I got to do a B and C, all because I'm single do you want to see pictures? Right? Yeah. Turning into a positive. And then they'll have nothing to respond. In fact, they might be really envious of your life. There is this weird thing in society that people want everyone to be figured out and by being single, you're essentially not figure it out. Yeah, why don't we applaud people for understanding their self better or applaud them for taking the time to find the right partner for them opposed to just any partner. And I think of the analogy of the pie, right? It's like we want the whole freaking pie and what better way to look at that apple pie on Thanksgiving and remind yourself that you're where you need to be right now, and you want that whole pie and there's nothing wrong with wanting a fulfilling life. And if you have a fulfilling life already, that's great because you could be like, look, I'm there. I just, you know, if I desire a relationship, I'll find that person eventually. And if, you know, you're not there, then it's an opportunity to be like, how can I have that whole pie and have that fulfilling life? I'm getting hungry and just thinking about that whole pie. All the whole pie too, but that's a great way to give a response back to your family. Without clapping back and it's just saying, I just haven't found someone that I want to make that whole pie with yet. So I've decided to make myself this year. Exactly, I'm looking for the whole pie, not just to slice that pie. Speaking of pie Julie, we're going to move on to this next segment, which is called random thoughts in UA's head. But in New York, I was able to watch waitress on Broadway. I don't know if you've ever seen that movie, and it was a book as well as starred Carrie Russell. Yeah, I was gonna felicity. Yes. Everyone's like, who's felicity again? I'm like, Carrie Russell is listening. That's not her actual name. Felicity is not a name. So anyway, I forgot what the movie was about, but watching it on Broadway, it was just so beautifully acted and sung and dance everything. Just beautifully performed, but the entire storyline is about this woman stuck in a bad marriage who finds how she's pregnant with her husband's kid and she feels even more stuck, so she feels like maybe I just have to accept this is my life. But once the baby is born, she comes to a different revelation about her life. And there's this one song in the Broadway musical called dear baby. And I don't have the lyrics in front of me, but she's writing a letter to her future child..

So she said expect to get really fucked up and to eat a lot of food. With the mom or the friend, my friend said that. Oh man, I was hoping the mom. But she might have said that too.

"Thank you. I'm glad to be here so. Let me start by asking you this last year when you first saw the video that horrific ugly video of dark shaw vin with his knee on. George floyd what were your first thoughts. Well as probably with so many other people. There was a sense of outrage. A sense of sadness deeply troubled that we still experiencing this kind of horrific behavior. I recognize that the this was an important moment though because we were independent because they had time to pay attention final. This is something. We are very familiar with the black community. Right it's not new at all is is not new at all and so thank god for social media. I mean people were outraged. Incensed moved to recognize that. We have to do something about racial injustice in this country and so i got the back back awakening because had it not happened. I've just shuttered. Think where we would be. Were you surprised by the level of the response across america. But i should say also around the world i mean. Blm jusque gained so much traction and attention globally in rallies and support marches in so many different countries to that. Surprise you it. I was pleasantly surprised by the response. It indicated that this is something that resonates around the world goes look is children. Who saw that for sure. The biggest best against racism against know that they are similar types of issues in their own mason so it was really a global out against the triple. Eagles have talked about our own. The hope today lives in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit poverty. Racism militarism declaring it tunnel opposition to poverty. Racism and militarism with this so in some regards we showed pleasantly surprised but also again that we find ourselves in a similar state fifty some years after his assassination. Your father of course was such a civil rights icon. So was your mother. How do you think they would have responded to the events of the last year. What do you think would have.

The US needs a radical revolution of values
"Five years my father was assassinated and he did change the world but the tragedy is that we didn't hear what he was saying to us as a prophet to his this nation in his words river. Reverberating back to us change. We all know is necessary right now. It's not easy. But i wanna talk about america's choice and a greater level. The prophet said to us. We still have a choice today. Nonviolent coexistence or violent coalition literally in the streets of our nation people who have been following the path non violent protests and people who have been hailed bent on destruction. Those choices are now at us and we have to make a choice. History of this nation was founded in violets. My father said america is the greatest purveyor of violence and the only way forward is if we repent for being a nation built on violence. And i'm not just talking about physical violence. I'm talking about systemic violence. I'm talking about policy. Violence i'm talking about what he spoke of the triple eagles of poverty. Racism and militarism all violent albert einstein. Stein said something to us. You said we cannot solve problems on the same level of thinking in which they were created and so if we are going to move forward we are going to have to deconstruct these systems of violence that we have seven america. And we're going to have to reconstruct on a not a foundation that foundation happens to be love and nonviolence and saw as we move forward weaken correct course if we make better choice that daddy said nonviolent coexistence and that continue on the pathway of violent cornell elation does that look like that that looks like some deconstruction work in order to get to the construction. We have to deconstruct are thinking. We've got to deconstruct the way in which we see people and deconstruct the way in which we operate practice and engage in policy and so i believe that there's a lot of heart a t. a. r. to work to do in the midst of all the h. a. r. d. hard work to do because heart work is hard work. One of the things we have to do is we have to ensure that everyone especially my white brothers and sisters after engaged in bihar work. The anti racism work in our hearts zapped from this especially in my white community. We must do that work in our hearts the anti racism work. The second thing is that. I encourage people to look at but mom violence training that we the kings of the kingston about or so that we learned the foundation of understanding our interrelatedness and interconnectedness. That we understand our loyalties and commitments and our policy-making can no longer be devoted to one group of people but has to be devoted to the the greater good of all people we all have to change and have to make a choice. It is a choice to change the direction that we have been going. We need a revolution of values in this country. That's what my daddy said you changed the world change hearts and now what has happened over the last seven eight years history. We have to change course and we all have to participate in changing america with a true revolution values where people are at the center and not profit. When morality is at the center and that our military might america does have a choice. We can even choose to go down. Continually that path of destruction or we can choose nonviolent coexistence and as my mother said struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really one in every generation

That inspired her to become a fitness instructor. Her mom was in a car accident and because she had a congestive heart failure. My mom was in a coma for from january. Fifth until june ninth.

And like we're five people in the course of a couple of months kept mentioning Ted Talk to me and finally I was like, okay, got to figure out who this woman is and what she's about and so because I tend to be a little bit upset. I I was. I was just going to dive right into Rene, and so I spent the whole, all of two thousand, twelve reading everything she'd ever written, and at that time she had dreamed books out Thought, it was just me the gift of imperfection enduring greatly had had just come out and I spent reading everything. She never written every article I listened to every podcast interview I just really like speak to myself in grenade for several months and I was totally taken aback I've felt like everything that she talked about in her books was what I heard everyday clients talking about on my couch and and I also felt like she was giving voice and naming so many things that that I still struggled with in my life that you know just in whole concept of shame. Keeps a small and and and chain can sometimes we really loud in our lives and sometimes it can be really covert and just recognizing in my own life like, wow, there there are a lot of ways in my life right now that I'm still hiding and you would never know from looking like looking out you know looking from the outside in you know I was at the time was a practicing therapist as I am still now and I'm giving talks and you know and I was out there but I realize in reading from work and reading her research I realized how? To little ways that I'm hiding hiding in things that I I do hiding in things that I never try hiding in people that I'm like Oh. We don't have anything in common I'M NOT GONNA you know get to know her just lots of little ways and and so I started taking comes little baby steps to come out of hiding really really small things that again, no one on the outside would have noticed any difference in my life but I was taking these little steps that felt very vulnerable to me and to my life and one baby step led to another baby step led to another baby step. And in two thousand thirteen. I had been working at a counseling center here in Atlanta were seven years at the time and or six years, and in two thousand and spring two, thousand thirteen. I went out on my own and started my own private practice and and it was because of Brunei and I know I recognized how cheesy. I mean out of my mouth, but it was you know these months with like Oh my goodness. I'm hiding I'm playing small. I. Am giving into those messages of shame and scarcity and I'm not enough I'm not enough capable enough. I'm not business minded enough and you know there was just a lot of not enough nece still going on in my life despite being a therapist and having done years of personal growth and development work and all of those daily steps to this big professional league of going out on my own and starting my own practice which you know has ended up just being. Probably one of the two best decisions ever in my entire life and So in the spring of two, thousand, thirteen I went out on my own, and then that summer was when I went to Texas for the training to be a certified waste, acilitator and So the the work the training just allows you to do a deeper dive into the work and teaches you how to teach the material to others how how to. Apply it to your client work and and so I, I hold daring way retreat to hold rising strong retreats and I integrate the work into my clients and and it's really foundational in a lot of ways to my practice and how I conceptualize shame with clients, and how I talk about all the different ways we armor up we protect ourselves from vulnerability and it's just been life changing personally and professionally for me.
