Rock journey You know all about that but it's been really fun to go back and hear about more who you are. So you left us with a coal if header than just in some really big trials that you guys had in those that first ten years of marriage. You you fill. What what some of the big tough things were that. I think a lot of women may be able to relate to actually. Yeah for sure There were two. And i couldn't even tell you which which came first But probably our struggle with infertility came. I as a matter of fact i well. Yeah that probably came i It all kinda started happening around the same time. And so you know. I told you before that my my desire my dream was always to just be a mom and a wife. I had no desires to you. Know have a big corporate job. Which i actually did work in the corporate world before we had kids but that was not my dream i wanted to be a wife and a mom in so Unfortunately when we first got married we bought into the world's lie that you know we need to have our lives together and we needed to be able to support a family and we needed to just kind of be mature enough to have kids and so we when numbers control pills. And now i completely regret that i. I would not do that again. Now as a matter of fact they really messed with my hormones and made me kinda crazy but we had brought into that And so for the first few years of our marriage. I i was on the pill and that is something that we've really had to repent for in his is is. That's a whole different part of our story but About four years into our marriage we were like okay. We're ready to have a baby now. For whatever reason we felt like we were ready at that point. And i just thought well it's going to be easy. No one in my family ever had a problem. Getting pregnant So why would i. And so we tried to have a baby and it didn't happen and it didn't happen and it didn't happen and it didn't happen some more and all these years started going by and it was first couple months and it was the you know like many women. Do you know. I was tracking everything. I had my You know thermometer next to my bed. And i like all the things that i thought he wanted to do. And and it was really really hard for me. Because i never expected that i would have a hard time. Conceiving i mean i just thought why why would i have difficulty to that well in the process of that in through that journey of infertility and it was just a lot of heartbreak i the lord was growing me in big ways and i remember one day Reading philippians four six and seven and it said do not be anxious about anything. But in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to god in the peace of god which transcends all understanding while guard your hearts and your minds in christ jesus and so. I literally wrote the scripture down and i posted it on mir my bathroom and i would just read this over and over and over again in. I just kept reading. Do not being just about anything. Do not be anxious about anything. Trust the lord. Trust alert full surrender and again. It was another point in my life. Where i just had to like fully surrender. Everything to the lord and trust him that his timing was going to be perfect through part of that time My parents went through a divorce. And i was at the time i was Twenty six years old. I guess and so That was a really difficult time for me. I'm glad that they didn't divorce. When i was a kid but it was shocking to me. How difficult it was for me to process that as an adult and so that was just a really hard time that our entire family went through. And that was i think at the point that he started to realize how much satan hates families and that seems going to do everything he can to break up a family and so it was. It was just hard So i was dealing with infertility. I was dealing with my parents. Divorce was dealing with just the Struggles of life and marriage and this is still within the first ten years. When i was saying you know we still were trying to figure out this marriage thing and i remember when having a dream and i i've i think i've told you about my other gene which i may talk about that later on but sometimes i and i'm not a person who like the lord speaks to me through dreams very often. I've actually had to in my life. Where i knew for a fact that god was just showing me something so i had this dream one night and i was really struggling during this time and i remember that i in my dream. I love roller coasters. If you don't know about that no that okay. that's that's part of yvette trivia. I absolutely love eared. I down them at uri. I love the. I love amusement parks. I love water parts now.

So in this dream that i had i was on this roller coaster and it was a really really big roller coaster. As a matter of fact in california at six flags magic mountain there is a roller coaster called goliath. So in my dream the roller coaster. That i was on was called goliath and i had been on this rollercoaster over and over again and i just kept writing over and over and over and over and over again like i wasn't getting off the roller coaster at this amusement park and finally it came to a stop and i told the rollercoaster ten and i said okay.

"Green towel. Tell the stories of black victims of police brutality. Welcome to episode 23. Today. I'll be telling the stories of Yvette Smith and Jordan Edwards. Is that Smith was born on, December 18th, nineteen sixty-six, with her, twin sister Yvonne at the Medical Arts Hospital in Big Spring. Texas her parents were Dolores Everett and Leon said the family moved to Baytown Texas. But moved back to Big Spring Texas when I thought that was beginning. The third grade, she graduated high school in nineteen, eighty-five. And at the age of 18 Yvette and Yvonne then moved to Austin, Texas, where they live with their grandparents Leon and Lorraine Smith. Shortly after her moved to Austin.

Is that left her family so much and she was known to always put her son's needs before her own. She was a nurse at osun state of spittle until she had knee surgery, which sort of put her out of commission. On February 16th 2014. If that was at a friend's house at 105 Zimmerman Avenue in Bastrop Texas where a fight broke out between two men that were in the home at the time. A gun was involved. So Yvette was trying to act as a peacemaker and she current efforts weren't working. So 911 was called about a half an hour after midnight. By the time, the Bastrop County police officers arrived. Things seem to have calmed down. Since one of the men was in the front yard and the other one was still in the house and the police learned from the dispatcher that a gun was being loaded inside of the home earlier. But the dispatcher never informed them that off. The gun was later unloaded and placed on a table in the home. One of the responding officers was Deputy Daniel Willis. the officers commanded that the people that were inside the home needed to come outside, but apparently, those commands were ignored And so this next part is what happened according to a statement released by the sheriff's office, they said that Yvette appeared in the doorway holding a gun off. And just a side note, Yvette family said that she was not comfortable with guys. Let alone holding one. So unfortunately we will never be able to hear events take on that matter.

What's the Best Thing I Can Do to Improve My Post-Flop Game?
"The best thing i can do to improve my post flop game now. This really depends on your current stats and your win. Rate's if i saw your numbers could definitely help you out more and give you some specific direction. Like if i was your poker mom right but for most of my students there are two major areas of post flop weakness that they have area one is calling too much post flop and area to is not considering range and board interaction. Let's talk first about calling. Too much post flop. You might know that. This is an issue of yours if you filter in your poker tracker for database filter for a call flops. Yvette call turn seebeck call river see bet and if you see highly negative win rates this is probably an area for you when it comes to post flop calling. There are only three reasons to call any bit on the flop or the turn. The first reason is that you're making a value call. This means that your hand is ahead of their bedding range and you just don't feel like raising the second. Reason is with a plan till bluff leader so maybe you see a potential way to bluff on a future street. Maybe based on the board texture cards your opponents range your opponents general tendencies. You might see a spot that you can bluff later so you call now to put you in that bluffing. Spot in the third reason is a good drawing price so you can mathematically make profitable call to try and hit your draw on the next street and math is what you gotta do to determine if you're getting a good draw price if your call does not fit any of these reasons then beloved raising or folding is better than calling. Now i'd mention those are the three reasons to call them on the flop. Turn on the river. There's only one reason to call. And that is if your hand is ahead of their bedding range in order to know that your hands ahead of their bedding range. You've got to be able to name worse hands that they're making this bet with right now. You don't wanna just call because you hope your hand is ahead if you can name a few reasonable bedding hands that you beat. Think calling is often totally fine on the
Houston bar struggles with how to enforce mask wearing after state mandate was lifted
"Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus restrictions. He made the announcement in a restaurant. The governor is ending a mask mandate and encouraging businesses to return to 100% capacity. How does that plan look to the staff at a restaurant? The governor did not visit. That's where Houston public Media's Katie Watkins begins her report. They're going around at Neil's Bar in Houston's East downtown neighborhood. A sign on the door reads. No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. But bartender Kristin Farmer worries the end of the statewide mask mandate may make that harder to enforce. Even prior to this, it was difficult sometimes to get customers to wear masks. So Going forward. I feel like it's gonna be More so under Governor Greg Abbott's new order businesses, Concil enact their own mask requirements and safety protocols, the bar farmer works that will still require masks and social distancing. But she fears the governor's message may further embolden anti masters and put people like herself who haven't been vaccinated at risk. We're obviously in a position where the vaccine isn't available Death but are trying to still work, so it would be cool if More people were vaccinated before we started opening up everything and Not taking just the basic steps. Currently, just 7% of people living in Texas are fully vaccinated. Still, some praise the governor's decision to allow businesses to operate at full capacity that is going to be tremendous and very, very necessary for our industry. That's Melissa Stewart with a Greater Houston restaurant association. She says. The statewide mask mandate was helpful when it was stay wide, and everybody had to do it. Was easier for staff members, frankly, to enforce it says it wasn't a question. That's why restaurant owner Alex Brennan Martin says he's making mass mandatory for employees but not for customers. Those strongly encouraged. It's become contentious and putting our employees are managers myself. In the position of enforcing those regulations, especially on an issue that seems to be just about 50 50 when you talk to folks and is highly emotionally charged It's a difficult thing to ask your employees and management to do. Houston has recorded all four Major Cove in 19 variants and medical professionals warn that loosening restrictions now will set back recovery efforts. Dr Joseph our own is the chief medical officer at United Memorial Medical Center. His main concern is another spike in hospitalizations. The moment I heard about these information of the governor was saying, I immediately called for a meeting here in the hospital on talking to the rest of the leaders of the hospital. We leave. From initial plans. So what we're going to do because we think we're going to have a large number of patients coming because of this, don't not wear a mask request by the governor, he says. These plans include stocking up on more PPE having more nursing personnel and even getting additional ventilators. Other frontline health care workers like ICU nurse Yvette Polo, Mackey share his concern. Colbert is nowhere near over. There's still people know ICUs like today that are dying that will die tomorrow that will die the next day. The next day, weeks and weeks to come still because of covert. She's worried about the extra physical and mental toll. This decision will take on her colleagues. Who have already been caring for a never ending stream of covert patients for nearly a year for NPR news. I'm Katie Watkins in Houston. The

The bahia principe chain realized they needed to get ahead of the press. The hotel company released a statement stressing that they were doing everything they could to help the families of the deceased and they would cooperate with local authorities to determine if there was any link between their deaths

It was not suspected, as she recalled in the 1992 interview with public radio station W Q. X are there was no way of breaking the sound. You couldn't make the cut that you couldn't make separation.

When most people think of electronic music in most cases, they'll picture men pushing the buttons knobs in the boundaries. So one of the things that really drew me to the story was that this was a story of women being enabled by new technology robbers. New documentary sisters with transistors celebrates their achievements spotlighting pioneers such as Daphne or, UM, who was hired as a studio engineer by the BBC in the 19 forties, while men were off fighting in the war after hours or, um, began recording and manipulating sounds on magnetic tape. Man. Her experiments led to the co founding of the BBC's Radio Franek Workshop, which also provided a platform for Delia Derbyshire. She crafted sounds for hundreds of BBC programs, including the iconic theme music for the TV side by Syria's doctor who which debuted in 1963. Five years later, Wendy Carlos took the first commercially available keyboard base of the Sizer to the general public. She introduced the instrument she helped Robert Mode design on her album switched on Bach, which sold more than a million copies. At the same time, female composers continued working on their own music. Juilliard trained Laurie Spiegel says Elektronik Instruments helped them bypass creative and professional obstacles and give voice to their compositions themselves. It was like looking the way a painter or a writer works. You were working on the actual work itself. You were being a piece of music out of sound that you could then play for somebody else. Instead of just having a piece of paper that you then needed someone else to go and perform. As a researcher at Bell Labs in the 19 seventies, Spiegel made music using experimental computer systems and complex algorithms to generate entirely new sounds. 1977 Spiegel's work was included on the Voyager golden record launched into space to represent all of humankind. That, she says the achievements of women have often gone on recognized early computer programmers very often where women because it was considered clerical. Then when they began to be called computer science, then it was suddenly totally men, and it was for gotten their women involved in your early days of computers. History of women has been a story of silence. Of breaking through the silence. We shall not be rubbed any longer. It's beautiful noise. Sisters with transistors is narrated by Laurie Anderson in 1977. Anderson debuted the tape Bow Violin, which allowed her to create her own performance art. In the 19 eighties, Anderson modified her Elektronik Trump set turning her body into an instrument. We gotta Lynn Drum machine and it was broken. And so I took it apart. And I thought, Well, what if you sold it into a suit? You know on your views to the various drum pads, specially For today's pioneers. Electronic music isn't just music. It's also a tool to break down barriers, says composer Yvette Janine Jackson. My creative journey with electronic music.

You get a lot of people that will dm you and say, Oh, I'm ready struggling with my mental health and sometimes it's difficult because if you integrate place with your mental health, it's very difficult to help others and you can feel of responsibility when you have a load of twelve, thirteen, fourteen year olds mass you saying that they're ready L. and they need a little help and then getting it so it can be a lot to take but generally.

What was the community like on Tiktok in terms of mental health checks on a straight feels fairly supportive of. TIKTOK is very supportive on it's mostly. So of Gen, Z. Kids. And I think as a whole always really sports each other the thing about Tiktok that's quite different to a lot of other platforms is that every time you release a video, it can be seen by a whole new audience of people. If it gets picked up by the Algorithm, it will get to it can go out to hundreds and thousands of people. and so you're always interacting with a new audience. From tiktok in. Particular I've never had many negative comments to be honest. They've always been really quite leaned.
New Louisville Police Chief Takes The Helm During Tense Time In The City
"See its third police chief take office since the police killing of Briana Taylor in March. Yeah, that Gentry will serve on an interim basis and will be the first black woman to lead the department. She previously served as a deputy police chief with the force before retiring in 2014. Gentry takes on the helm during a tense time in the city. There's been protests over Taylor's death for months, followed by anger over the lack of charges for her killing. And now a delay in the release of grand jury recordings, which her family and others have demanded. Chief Gentry joins me now Welcome to all things considered. Thank you for having me Well, let's start with the killing of Rianna Taylor. There's been a lot of criticism about the actions of the officers involved at night to remind listeners. Briana was asleep with her boyfriend when police arrived, and most witnesses say police did not identify themselves. Taylor's boyfriend says he shot towards the door and self defense thinking the police were intruders. Taylor was shot and killed after police opened fire. How do you characterize the police activity that led to Brianna's death? Well, that is the part that we're looking at. Now. Take over tomorrow. I've had just 1 ft briefing yesterday. So everything I know about the Briana Taylor case really is just as a citizen getting information from media. I am too anxiously awaiting to see what the G presented because what's important to me is that the proper scope of the investigation was done. People want to know from start to finish what happened in that case, and I certainly want to know that I think the public and the family deserves that as well. And the officers who are out there on the front line. How do you view your role In this moment? You've been in law enforcement for a very long time, and you've decided to step in At this pivotal point in history after being in retirement, right. I gave up a whole lot of comfort because I could see a lot of people both invited agency and out here protesting that really were uncomfortable with the way things were happening. And so I feel like I was best suited to stand in the gap. I know the agency. I know the city. I know a lot of the inequities that have taken place across the city, and so I can come in here and make sure that we create better conditions for people. So that they don't feel left out. And they don't feel angry all the time and disenfranchise because I know how that feels to be a black woman that have lived in various parts of the city over the course of my 15 year life. I'm curious that the department come to you, or did you step up? I really had more community people coming to me and some police officers, But I had a lot of leaders across the community that came to me is that you've met. I believe you're the person for this time, But the more and more that I thought about it and, you know, I'm a Christian person will believe in prayer and afraid about it, And I thought about the sacrifice of some of my co workers over the years. Other black women across the city And so I said, I know the systems and I will come in here, and I believe that even for a short time I compared us in a direction that is gonna make Louisville better place. Black Americans make up about one quarter of Louisville's population, but only about 10% of the department officers are black. What's the disconnect? I think a lot of it is pushed back again. The community. I mean, if you look at any of the videos from some of the protests and some of the way that the black offices were portrayed as traders, you know a lot of the things that happened in the media and also happen on the streets every day really make it a very, very tough sale for African American officers. One of the officers involved in the shooting. John Mattingly sent a letter to his colleagues calling some protesters thugs and saying criminals were being canonized. How widely do you think his views are our shared in the department? You know, I still wholeheartedly believe in the overwhelming majority of the police officers here. There is a lack of discipline. You know, I think we had several commanders kind of getting on. Social media and different things and putting those comments out that are very disheartening, inappropriate and they send the wrong message to the officers are on the front line, but we have to deal with that lack of discipline at the top. You have spent 20 years with the department, including several is deputy police chief. You heard from your community who said they wanted to see you in this role. For people who feel like the department hasn't done enough to reform. What is the case for putting you in charge? You know, the reforms are going to take a life of its own. But I will tell you this. I'm not a fan of taking a lot of tools off the table because the reality is it moves deadly forth up, which is supposed to be the overarching goal that we're trying to prevent. So I think the important thing is to focus on recruitment to make sure we have the right person because the right pool in the wrong hands is always going to be a bad idea. So if we get the right men and women in here, then the schools are going to be used appropriately. That's Yvette Gentry, who starts his interim police chief of Louisville, Kentucky. Tomorrow, Iraqi leaders say Secretary of State

It's all. Got Me thinking I'm like well Andy Andy Projects `Dinu thing now for Hollywood can be a new formula for how Hollywood Cannes film because they're used to the smaller budgets and used to make things work. But you have to take my word for it I. Do have an expert with me today. My guest today is Indie director Trey Haley and he's has had quite the influence on bt plus if you see where I'm going with that. He also has a series, the family business, always a bridesmaid which features the visa which you guys know by the way is going to be bad woman. So I, had the in my head to point that out straight and his his my favorite project of his at ease erected is called note to self. It's like a really cute romance movie like I don't know if you guys are check this out as Christian keyes Letroy. Lucky I just it's. So it's so I love I didn't know I didn't know you directed this trey and I decided to get shot because that's one of my favorites. Thank you. Thank you. You're welcome. Go ahead I'll. I'll let you take talking to know enough I just want to keep you up here. Appreciates you. Thank you for having me on and.

It looked like a lot of fun like I was always wanted like so you never know I guess and I'll get we'll. Get hopefully we can get a little secrets from you and and how you've got an industry but you never know when you're going to get another one of those projects but to me it was so cute I would have wanted a second one but you never know what's going on you know with that kind of stuff and you know that world and Hollywood and everything right? Right? No No, you know That wind just it was just that one note to self. Really what? Part to ever really created for it but right right Sometimes, we get the part to sometimes it's just like you know it's like even always a bridesmaid people keep asking. Is there going to be a part of this? You know no Yvette Nicole Brown wrote that movie and that. She's now. Made her thing we we should make our to we'll let you know what would Yeah Right. But yeah. So yeah, that's cool. But yeah. So you have a lot of a lot of products going, which is really dope because you kind of like I think it's really cool. your career by the way when I was researching because you, you're kind of you're kind of under the radar but not necessarily like your hat and stuff. It's just Hollywood had this weird way of like surveys out there as we know yeah, yeah. It's it's one of those things I think as we continue to go. Yeah we like let the work speak for itself. You know a lot right now what we do, they see what we do. We also consider ourselves in indy studio in meaning like we you know from locations to our resources out here in Los Angeles to the relationships we have with distributors in allowing ourselves to be positioned to where we still have ownership within our property that we create and collaborate with networks or distributors where we both owned The property together you know like. Fifty or or licensing deals where we bring in the capital two so that we have some crew you know more creative. Input into what we're making so that we'd contrite or read about the Dome of these projects is well. And do you feel guess going on what I was off the top? Do you feel because I feel in my opinion any projects could kind of give a rollback or or blueprint for how they could go about filming. 'cause I know everybody's been question is how are they going to finish a lot of these TV shows? You know how they're gonNA finish she's movies because you guys correct me if I wrong with you guys deal with on a daily basis. Okay. Budgets. How am I going to get this done with this little better? You know these amount of actors yeah. Yeah Yeah we look like we we always say we. We do our best to quality you know every new project, we just make sure we're growing and building and building level. We can make sure that are actors are excited about working but the big thing for us is given people rolls that they don't often get. As one of our things, you know when we cast, we look for opportunities to give people unique. Like we say, Hey, will you know what this person may be interested in his role because they've never done this before you know right earl instead of looking at somebody and say they will never do it. They may actually do it because they've never done it before it's kind of like the Halle Berry scenario with monster's ball right nobody. Yeah. That role because she was at the time is far will you know obviously, they didn't even consider her it first for this, but then our passion to play something. So different. Placed her into this situation. So it's a of actors here that are just always been putting by. So doing the same thing, you see them doing those same. Sometimes, they always win the same role. What's not good that they just want to do the same role that's what they're being presented to him. A lot of times will right take you flip it say, Hey, I know you do that. That's your bread and butter, but here's a scenario. May We pay half of what you get. But right right. But it now is going to show you the value. Is it for you something different so now you can walk away from this people can say, wow, I never see this person like that before which explain exactly. So it's about also giving people adding value that's what our world collaborative company we love like whether it's behind the scenes in front of scenes we're always in collaboration and making sure we have a win win scenario with everybody we work with but then when this covert scenario as you were saying. It's also about. You know we're we're about to go back into filming at the end of the month and.
"yvette" Discussed on The Convo with Kisha
"I think oh well at it goes a long and it goes along with loving yourself but understanding and knowing the value of self-worth I think is huge and I think there's so many of us that struggle with it and we accept anything that comes our way as opposed to asking for what we want both. Yes and you have to remind yourself all the time because the one thing I've learned is that we're creatures of habit and I I can know my song I can love myself but you know, we fall in love we fall into relationships we give it all and then you kind of forget those lessons that you've learned. Yeah, and I think you have to keep reminding yourself. You know, I am worthy. I am not going to just accept whatever comes I am going to ask for what I wad. Always being prudent. I mean obviously but because it's a give-and-take self-love self-worth and being just having self compassion. I think I think that's awesome. I think that's like totally also especially when you think about yourself cuz we can't serve others unless it's just taking care of ourselves girl. That should be a prayer. You know, it's funny because I didn't never really understood. I can't give give it all and not give to myself because at some point out that tank is going to dry out and no one's going to get anything. Yes. So yes absolutely caring loving yourself caring for yourself is definitely up there. Yes, so true and I think it just makes me think about that saying what they say. You can't pour from an empty cup. Yes. And so I tell people all the time like it's so important for you to take care of yourself. That is so important for you to practice self-care and not not do it, you know on occasions like self-care it should be done every single Day, you know find something that you love do it everyday to make yourself feel better cuz we have so much to give to the world and we can't do that. We are Miss we can't do that if we're not taking care of ourselves. So I just saw that's the thing. That's one of the things we definitely should be doing is being kind and loving ourselves that all those things. So I just love it like all your stuff was. So beautiful like you gave us so much good information about, you know, being awake and all of that so tell us how we can get connected with you and I'll make sure all of that information is in the show notes. So my my website awakens woman, it's awakened woman. I'm on Instagram as woman awakens on Twitter as woman awakens and on faith spoke with the I think the handle is aw inspires. And honestly, if you just Google my name, you'll find homes for all the world to see that's another thing. I'm still getting used to by the way. I'm like, oh my God people that just Google my name and finds it off. Yeah, but that's a good thing because my goal is to spread positive messages to help Inspire other women. So they please, you know, if need some inspiration definitely check out awakens woman and the interesting thing about this whole You know this phase of my journey is I've been able to meet women from all walks of life women who've done really well women who were jeeze, you know born in affluent families and you know, those who came from nothing Ryan's would I am finding is that doesn't matter how much money you have how big your house is how it doesn't matter where you come from. We are all connected by our experiences. There is so much overlap that it's a it's beautiful because it makes it reinforces my belief that we can all learn from each other. It doesn't matter where we come from, right? That is so beautiful. Oh, that's so awful. I have certainly enjoyed chatting with you learning more about you and what you do to help other way. It's just been totally awesome. Thank you. you so much for having me. I really enjoyed our conversation.

"Set out to make your dreams come true your goals. But embrace the journey because I truly believe it's about the journey. It's not about the prize at end of the yellow brick road all the pot of gold right off of the rainbow. It's about the journey. It's about the time that you are spending with people doing the things that you love to me. That is what it's about because when you know, when I go on said, you know, wherever we go next, that's what I take with me and I as I get older, I realize the whole power in that. That is so awesome. Oh my gosh, like I'm sitting here like pasta collection. Thank you Chuck the hair that we do we need to hear that cuz like I said, sometimes I just think we just so hard on ourselves and sometimes it takes so long to say to us those things so that we get it we need to get it that work. What we have is a gift and somebody needs it. Somebody definitely walk, you know needs it. So let me ask you this when I'm going to play Devil's Advocate. So if you were not awakened if you had never start a w, what do you think you'd be doing? Wow, cuz I know for me when I was asked that they were like, okay. So what if he never started your Brand's, you know, what do you think that you would have been doing? And I said, you know, honestly, I think would have still been stuck in retail. Like I still probably would have been there. I never probably would have like done anything differently I think working there and as much I hate seeing it kind of pushed me I think You know to do what I'm doing now, not that I wasn't doing it then I was but I think that pure hatred of it just made me go ahead and jump and say, I sold I I'm feeling everything you're saying right now. I'm not quite out on the other side, but that's the goal. Yeah, definitely cause I you know, it's funny when you ask that. I thought that the first thing came to mind was the word unhappy I'm not saying that you know, I have my moments where I'm frustrated now, right, but I can't say unhappy is different unfulfilled. Yeah. Yeah. I think I would have felt extremely unfulfilled and I'm not saying I loved being a wife I you know, and I was he's a good man down but there was so much of me that was missing such a big piece that if I would never have found that I I think I would have felt like it was a whole but I was there was just something avoid that I needed to feel so I think unhappy would have to be the word right off that they say it's cuz I mean when you think about when you're walking and your purpose when you're doing the things that you know that have been purpose and positioned by God to do with I think unhappy is really what will come to mind because you're doing something that's outside of your purpose and the will that he has for you. So yeah dead. Totally unhappy and that's just that's how I was I was unhappy I dreaded going into work. Like I would have my days off and then that second day. I'll be just depressed off, you know, yes. Yes, you know as far that I looked at it like it's a means to an end wage. Yeah. It's the job that pays for my dream and that's how if anyone's listening that is trying to build that dream or trying to attain that goal and is you know, if she has a hard time waking up to go that job that they dislike and there are tons of us that do that. I think a friend of mine told me a long time ago, if you think about it like it is but you know the job that pays for your dream, it makes it a little easier because you're seeing that there is light at the end of that tunnel. It's not nothing is permanent off. So well except for one thing. But but you have to know that it's a station. It's just a temporary State until you get to where you really want to be. Right, right and that is so true. That is so so true. And I definitely want people to understand that if that's just exactly what It is it's just what you have to do until it is time and and I will say that too until it is time to step out and do something different. It's not a decision that you just make off of whim it is not something that you take very lightly. It is definitely something you know, you have to consider but that is exactly how long I saw it and I think that's what helped give me more joy about going in although I would dread it. It was like this isn't forever. That's just temporary out of something else. You know, I want to do that. I will be doing outside of this. So yeah, I'm good. Like I'm going to just bounce off here. Come on out like yeah. That's I think that's a perfect way of of looking at it to where your job Just so bogged down with all this job. You know, I was I'm very appreciative to 2 for my job to job. It helped me be able to do a lot of things that I wouldn't wage if I didn't have it. So I'm actually appreciative, you know the job. So I think that's a great way, you know, helping people see the you know, their job is still a blessing to be able to do what you need do. Be grateful, right? Yes. Yes, absolutely. So what has been the most powerful lesson you've learned as an awakened woman. I know exactly what that is. I love myself. To be kind to myself. Yes..

"Oh boy. Oh what the loaded questions today? Huh? My biggest win, you know home and my biggest win is When someone tells me that they've read what I've heard they've read one of my articles often it touched them. It changed them. It made them cry. So have that power to be able to use your words to heal people or to make them feel something right? I think it's magical. So that's my biggest one. Yes, that is wonderful. It just really makes you think about what's really important. You know, when you could do that. They that you know, you've touched them that way it really makes you you know wonder about that. So, what about what's been your biggest challenge? biggest challenge My biggest chance I know that it is so I recently been asked to I have to I've been I've started the process of building my Brands and when I started all this I I was sort of hesitant to show my picture show my face wage, you know, I because it wasn't about me. Yeah, but I've realized that is part of the package so either so I think putting myself up there and and even on Instagram, you know, I'll put clothes and I'll click, you know, I'll just I'll do some right up and off the engagement is different when I put out. Let's say a picture with the message right? So I think I think that's been challenging because it means put off. A face to the name and I am completely proud of a w it's just I never want people to think that for me. The the whole key for me is the writing is the message. It's not about you know, what I'm wearing what I look like, that's not what it's about. Exactly. So that's that's been the biggest challenge but I'm working to balance that out. I don't want too much of one thing or the other. I'm trying to balance it out. Right right question. Yeah. That is that's a lie, because I'm the same way like even for me it was like, oh, I hate the sound of my voice. I'll never do anything talking. So why you got a podcast, you know, why do you appear or speak at certain why we just always have something new to me people they attached to us. So we have to show our faces we have to you know off. Talk and and give speeches and things but yeah, I was exact same way. Like why do you need my face on it? Why do I have to be home? I did I did and it's on YouTube. I did an interview and it was an interview with two women. It was I forgot the writers corner and one woman was was in South Africa off. The other post was in Tennessee. And that was the first time I was on video and I was like, oh like if it's really weird to sort of see your face home, so I haven't done one of those again, but I'm doing another one next week and I July when it's my first one and she was like, I really want you on the show and I'm like, oh my gosh, so am I know so we continued that'll be interesting because I have a lot of facial expressions and I talk with my hands. So, you know, I'm I'm Latina birth This is and it's I just I want to be me. I don't want to look a certain way or portray myself for certain jobs. I just want to be me, right? Yes, that's me. I'm just like okay. Yeah, I seen your post pictures you all fabulous has to be like, okay, let's do this job for me. If I go with my mouth wide open showing all my teeth like and they called me in the morning cuz I'm trying to be like not seeing anything so hard. Well, totally natural natural. I appreciate that. Thank you so so much. So if you could deliver one message to the listeners, you know that inspires them and Powers them encourages them. What would it be one message? Give us as many you want to see, you know, I'm saying this you got the floor. I would say. Don't limit yourselves dream big. I create the biggest dream you can and go after it the worst that could happen is that it won't materialize but I do believe or let's say, you know, I mean be realistic obviously, but I don't think it's about the big house. I don't think it's about the million dollars in the account. Although that would be nice a couple extra examples for college tuition off, but it's truly about the journey. Like I'm you know, I'm I just started this journey a couple of years ago and took it hasn't been obviously about monetizing because I'm not I'm really not profiting. It's it's been about the journey. It's been about the amazing women that I've met with the nuggets of wisdom that every single woman has given me the inspiration that every woman has given me and learning so much about myself. I am stronger than I thought that was I am more creative than I ever thought possible. Yeah, and I wouldn't have learned all these things where it not if I didn't set on this journey, I didn't know about I didn't even I got to tell you like people ask me what when did you start writing? Did you go to school? You know? No, I took four years of psychology liberal arts, and I didn't set out to be a writer but I found my passion. I found my purpose. It's really about the journey. Yeah, don't be afraid of what's possible. Don't be afraid of finding out the truth of who you are because I'm not saying it's all going to be good, but we're not perfect. We're not I mean, we're human beings but embrace the journey and there will be good and bad times, but we'll learn from each of those moments pass. So I'd say set out to.

"Also about those who are watching me who's watching me right now. Are they saying like, oh my gosh, she just left this good job, you know, they always say oh you just set that good job, then, you know, it's going to empower them to say I probably do that too. Absolutely at the end of day if you obviously they're you know, they're calculated risks, but if you don't take a risk your own not going to know if I mean you're not going to know so no, I understand that I get that. Yeah never you have to take some risks. Yep. Yeah, and if you you know, and I think if you make if you take that step It's go big or home you have have to make it work? Right? Right, and I think sometimes when we took don't we we have this, you know, they sell you have this fear of missing out. Well, yeah, you do kind of have that fear of missing out because it's something so much bigger and greater out there for us that we never know how close to it. We are. If we don't keep going. Absolutely, and and I think the biggest part of that is just believing in yourself exactly if past you have to have that. Yep. That is so important. So since starting a w what has been your biggest win and your biggest challenge. Stay right there. We'll be right back after a word from our sponsor..

"And that was that part was not there anymore. I mean, I still had to take care of my daughter but dead. Is it it's different? So I thought about all the women that were going through, you know, all these different emotions and insecurities and fears and I started writing and my book came from that whole experience and and I always say this I feel like awakened a woman came to me it I honestly did not set out to you know, I didn't say, okay. Well, I'm going to start a blog it really wasn't about that. It was more about sharing my stories and touching lives and hopefully helping other women feel hope feel inspired to keep going. So that's that was the reason why it did and that's I guess that's why call it a community because you know, I hear about I mean hear from women all over the world from Kenya from France from I mean all parts of the World song The Middle East and you know, they're like you're doing something incredible. I mean just reading your story if it gives me strength and that's that's powerful. Yes God. Yes. I love that because we don't understand sometimes how we Empower and motivate other women. Just other people in general. Jerry are stories. I recall talking one day to someone and just sharing with You know how I've been through a lot of things and they were like, oh my gosh, you know, I seriously was thinking about giving up and I was like why and they were just, you know, naming off some stuff that they have went through and they indicate by saying I'm looking at you now and you got through it. So I think I can get through it off so you can do anything with God and I'm just so you have to do it with no one but him but a lot of times are stories like your story and why you started this is so powerful because other women are going to be awakened other women are going to be motivated in power to do the the best that they can do and they're going to be able to help other women instead cuz it's almost like a domino effect of you think about it when one of us comes out and we discover who we are we tell everybody and their dog Try to help everybody and then they you know, someone else gets touched by it. So I think that is so great that you've started this and I think it's just amazing how you're going to touch other people's lives being really just putting them in a good place. Absolutely. That's the goal. I think I really do believe we're stronger when we work together. I mean we have work to do but I think I think women are catching on I mean we can do we can do amazing things if we pull together there is no, I don't I don't I've never I'm not like I'm competitive with myself. I feel like okay I did this but I could do a better but I've never felt that off competition with another woman. I honestly believe that we can help each other. It's almost like you can make a human chain and you can learn and you can grow and you can become strong. Anger just by helping each other. Yes, I think was so powerful like you just said is that us banding together? Like I already feel like we run the world in a way, you know, like I'm just like so much more together. It's just so much that we could do you get together. So let's talk a little bit about you. So your mother juggling two full-time jobs. Do you just kind of have days that you just want to give up the dream? Who are you serious? It's like like really but I mean what stops you from doing that tell you something funny. I was I interviewed this. I'm not going to give it away. But I I I started this empowerment series on a w and it's interviewing women from all walks of life well-known actresses entrepreneurs and I was having this I was doing interview today and I asked her that I asked the woman that question and not you know, I admitted to her that during the interview I said, you know the past week I've just felt like maybe this was something that you know, I can't keep up with I'll be honest. It's just it's I make no profit I make nothing off of it. I literally am building this to help others, right? So, you know, it's it's something that I'm I do literally all the dog. Getting I do all the writing because that is very personal. So I've written a girl I've written on the weekends woman alone about over four hundred. Plus I've contributed Drive magazine. I'm a writer for be Latina. So this is literally like I'm doing it. It's my passion. So, you know, I just this week it's sort of, you know, watching the news and thinking about school next year and just everything sort of got to me and I I just I've always felt like I have to be strong. have to be strong. I have to be strong last week. I just shut down. I guess they call it a melt some people call a meltdown. Some people say direction. I've just I'm like, oh my God, like maybe I should give something up and you want me to tell you something every single time that I even that that song. Has crossed my mind something happens during that moment or that 24 or 48 Hours, whatever something happens with that pushes me further towards my purpose. Yeah that point I'm like, okay. This is what I am supposed to do. So I can't can't give up because it to me. It's like it's just signed that this is the path that I am supposed to be on. Right right. So I just feel that it's bigger than me and even if it crosses my mind something always happens to show me know you have to keep going exactly exactly but we all have those days. Yes even more so I think was some people may not get home is that we do it sometimes without even like Thinking, you know like we we want to stop but then we're like I gotta keep going and we just keep going and and we're like, oh, wow, it almost want to suck and we just keep going and I think it empowers us to know that we're touching other people's lives. I think for me the main thing when I get those days cuz I have those days too. I just recently stepped out to be a full-time entrepreneur. I left, you know, five-figure almost off your all in. Yeah, so it's like it's now never but then I think about you know, God purposed me for something bigger. And in order for me to get it I had to step down and do my own thing but it wasn't even about me for one. It's about leaving Legacy for my family for my children, but it's.

I love just for us to talk about that. So often tell us what is an awakened woman. That's a loaded question. It's interesting cuz I was having this conversation with someone a few hours ago. I felt for a while. I was sort of going through life sleepwalking. I was marriage. Happily married, you know, I was a wife Mom. I have a good job, but I kept feeling like something was missing off and I realized that it was it was me. I was nursing I was all these things to different people my daughter my husband wife boss, but I didn't know who I was and I was with my ex-husband for close to ten years. We were together close to ten years and when I suggested the Journey of finding myself, it was it was very confusing. It was painful. It was it was something that I had to do alone and it's really hard to do that when you're married. So I you know Against All Odds, I started that journey and at the I don't want to say the ends because the journey really does suck. Stop, but right I mean but during that part of my journey, we grew apart so long story short, we bought, you know decided to cut our losses and we got divorced and post once once we made that decision and I knew it was done at name was me and you know and my daughter it was oh man. It was literally I felt like my life imploded off and I literally, you know, when you break something down to build it back up. Yes, what happened to me? And from that came Awakening. I mean literally it was like opening my eyes to a different life of different me. But at the same time, I don't think it was a different me. I I just think it was the name. Me. Yeah, and that was my Awakening. It's it's it's hard. It's hard. Yes, I am awakened. So now I don't feel like I'm sleepwalking. I you know, I try to feel everything when I'm the self-awareness is just different. I mean when something's not making me happy I ask the questions and sometimes you don't want to you know, don't want those answers. I think embracing your truth is something very practical, but once you're awakened, you won't take anything else you won't be anyone else. So I think I think that's what awakens has been for me. Waking up to the real me. Oh my gosh, and I love that cuz you know a lot of times we don't know the real us. I remember when I first started blogging one of the articles, I wrote was called The Other Woman being the other woman and people were like, ooh girl what you're writing about and it had nothing to do with you know with being with someone else's man or husband. It was about being not being authentic not being who God created me to be now being that woman like you you should look in the mirror and you're like, who is this person you confirmed or transformed yourself to everything? Everybody else wanted you to be but not concern yourself with now who God created you to be so sad the fact that I hate you had to go through that, you know to get there, but I'm so glad that you suck. To started this whole movement and besides, you know, just you know your own personal trials you went through, you know, like what other reasons did you start awaken woman? Truthfully, you know when I was going through this process of divorce and finding myself, I felt incredibly alone and it wasn't a lack of support. I have my sister's I had my friends. I had my mom. I had people who said, you know, I'm here for you, but it's really something that you would have to do alone and I started thinking about all the women and as I healed because it's a process you don't Kyo in a day or month or two years, right? I I thought about all the women that are alone that have no support that have no one to go to and you know, I went through a you know depression because that's all I knew I wanted to be a wife and a mom take care.

"I feel bad for like so much of the emotional pain in this movie was from vets character and everything that she was going through. I really thought it was interesting that they would swear not necessarily have sex but they would kiss and dry hump each other in front of the kid. I thought that was really interesting. But Hey you know like boundaries me like a like a dog is different like having a kid in the room would be. We could grow up. Messed up maybe. It's not weird until they can like and that's when it gets right I would maybe not does. But if you're eighty babies I would not know it or Can I ask question that kind of not related to this movie? So we have airmont. Quitting was a big star at the time o'meara Cuba Cuba. Kupa was a blockbuster. Also winning star even at this time with the show me. The money was at around this time as well. No I think he dollars way before of Jerry. Maguire don't know what happened that he did snow dogs. And then he just Olwin downhill now dog five according to Tracy Jordan from thirty rock five now Doug Five really love Cuba gooding movies like Fox. Meat he he just kept demise everything that. I thought a block. Superstar should be a lease from point of view. He really had his time in the sun. Didn't they do. It was also in boys in the hood right. Oh one thing is boys the. Who'd you have cooper and then e you have plenty of John Singleton? He knows talent and don't forget Mars. Just not. Just try and put him in all the places don't you worry earthy would as well in March Cuba gooding. Junior was the biggest star of felt. Like Omar is a really good actors. We deserve this right. He'd definitely stands on his own. Yeah I really enjoyed him and again. He reminded me of Leon from snowfall as well like that too. I see that would go further than you would go but in saying that dirty was definitely an Franklin from snow for just a little bit. Not Maybe maybe in the last episode of the recent season. Oh Yeah he. He turned into some. That's that's not a spoiler. You should definitely watch snowfall because we will definitely cover it very soon. I definitely want to give some shout outs to the actress. Update Kim Angell Conwell. Because she's actually in bigger. Which is a t shirt that we recently. She does not age and like. Wow Wow good for you amazing. And it's nice. It's funny when when I watched something and I go back to watch an old movie and see them right But I think she did a very good job as well. Do you have anything else to say about. Snoop Dogg as Rodney. He's Lucky Don Bills Roles. Adama dozen like it's it's just a little come. Come you'll per se. Oh come on. This was more than a than a Communist. He's donald sort of this shit a lot so I think I'm sort of descended desensitized by the factory. Throw Snoop dogg movie. No I play the role quite wilder especially when because obviously I did and I know I saw snoop dog on the cover. But I didn't realize that he would be not even a love interest but he would be the guy that was imprisoned and I really enjoyed him cooling dirty out on his bitch ass. I thought that was quite funny about him. Still living at her with his mom So I definitely really enjoyed it. I think Lakey stanfield plays Snoop Dogg in straight OUTTA COMPTON RIGHT And that was interesting but I don't think this is the spoiler but I do feel like the world of Rodney existed before the world of training day. Oh I guess let's just leave it there but I definitely enjoyed seeing snoop dog. He's fun- he's great he has. He's Katy Perry collaborations but we still love him. Will the same who Go and faneuil on the garments And get yourself a refreshing drink. 'cause we going to finish off in a segment. We call fe reference Eddie. It's obvious up the star of the movie. If you just want to watch John Singleton best. I'd say boys in the hood is far up and get a different side of Of the of the coding the gooding sides Nice it's interesting it's interesting. You say that because a lot of the time there's a lot of things that are popular and sometimes not deserved but I really feel like boys in the hood definitely needs to be watched by everyone that has it available to them. Anyone the loves movies really if you've got a TV pausing who needs to be either being watched and the thing is I think I didn't realize at the time because I think I hadn't watched buzzing the WHO'd yet and watching baby boy now you could just see a lot of the parallels control from and wow just do yourself a favor watch boys in the hood. If you haven't before I come up with my references I forgot to say something for some reason. I thought that Taraji was going to have a succeed. Moving rooms and I got very disappointed. Pla Very disappointed that we didn't get that. I knew I wasn't going to get a snoop dogg sixteen but I. I was very disappointed that I didn't get to see that So sometimes even though you wish hot enough it doesn't happen friends and lovers but I can wish for references if you enjoyed baby boy and I've got to references to The first one. I've mentioned quite a lot through this episode and that is snowfall fx.

"Odd Bjorn and welcome Swinton Yours Metro. Could he ks mental health podcast? I'm Yvette and we're doing things but at the moment because of the epidemic today. I'm chatting soup Professor Mike Combs. He's the vice chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners. We're going be fine the out about how. Gp's coping at the moment and how the health service might be affected after the epidemic We do know is I think. Definitely different general practice Evolved changed rapidly last Pepsi's accesses in a different way using technology and much more over way. But you know I think I'm despite the fact that has been changes work so it's GonNa. I'm still quite certainly where I would. Let's get to hear What's Today worked? Like how change because of the prime of it. So I think The Access to general practitioners. So we're asking patients to use the phone who use the Internet to contact us and then we're cooling back in assessing than needs and often weekly video consultations which we have helped in. We're trying to do with as as many agent requests hitting outweighs possible We're using more than one more. My Corona virus type symptoms. But we're also got the ability to save people both in the way I'd also Problems you are. A few people have been put off new ways. Contacting be found. People have adopted very quickly. Immi indicated you. I think people were the public with that. Had An amazing response and using services really appropriately and trying to keep away. She hasn't we have noticed that there was a reduction agent edgy cat activity. You know at one point. I think we're probably seeing a twenty five percent reduction of cool cozy against Over time has become slide worrying. And we're seeing fewer people they admitted to hospital for Co Coburg Related Issues Where seeing numbers referrals to Secondary Cancer Hospital Services has Jesus for example the two week. Wait referrals potential. Cancer diagnoses seems to have gone down by fifty percent. So we all worried that people have changed their behavior and it's and it's resulting Perhaps not presenting to general practice. We've probably be able to today. What about these mental health issues? Do you think people are still stiff? Hesitates to him thinking that they should getting touch that. Gps The moment useful thing. There is an element is I was talking to some colleagues From I AP and from so. That's the local psychological therapies service and also from the Somme and tell them to have reduced And I think we also you see few patients presenting with mental health issues which is again a bit of a worry. 'cause you know what we suspected that those programs have increasing due to the low kind due to the current situation so we all trying to get message out. General Practices Oakland to business. I mean we really would like to contact his a took him. Yeah definitely because I'm sure it's it's a very difficult time for lots of people for twenty two issues on that people with longtime mental health issues finding things harder at the moment but also Perhaps people who might not sit had mentally south issues before dealing with a great deal of sedans. Artie and other issues How you finding yourself that things like that. The video calls and of telephone calls with patients. I mean do you think it must be very difficult to support people especially with mental issues that way? Different I think. And we're having to adapt to that have to make the best of it and to be honest. We all able to communicate. We only see patients affected. Say is being in the same room with human connection and the definitely different I think it's okay. We're managing to have conversations and you know we do have the ability to see people and if absolutely necessary and of course We meet we have capacity to do that. We already sort of done how some people might be sort of hesitation about event the GP even if they had quite a serious issue are you. There might be some sort of Possible sort of Russians under people going to the doctor after tendon because over. That's one of the things that we have been talking about. You won't come next and I think general practice. He's starting to pass that and we want to avoid being overwhelmed and and we're starting to reach out to patients who we think might might be higher. School is situation where they might need our input so many long term condition and of course mental health is one of them. So we're thinking about well which civilian into to me to reach out to you Pets on dementia patients The pictures that practice of being at high risk for the reasons whether a history of safeguarding or perhaps domestic abuse history in the past you know building teams in the practice to then reach out and try and connect them productivity wrongly and just waiting to contact to What about GP's themselves? What kind of challenges? They face into the right mental health because it must be quite stressful time as a stressful time for all of us but it must be particularly Houghton Sosa from frontlines. Much me something where we we all. Well I think the changes in themselves and the ducks into new rated working has been one thing Obviously the risk of contracting to rotavirus yourself to play to think the meal Piccolo know patients. He's had an not a challenge. Either thing that we've come across the cruces A workload in terms of our shielding patients and contacting patients cat home near the vulnerable sincere and having difficult conversations about What they want for their future K. You know whether they want to be casual. Do they want to go into? And those conversations are really difficult to the best of times when you're in the face to face situation but during the do them have those conversations when you're not Is a is is quite stressful. So I think we all worried about. Gp We're trying to Offer resources And support for them to take it out their own well-being James Difficult time. Well supported the out there for GP's in particular. So I think we're so the the role Kanji the being a brokerage house. Educating the major stake goes energy I think in a strong to encourage don't healthcare professionals just to think about themselves focus on their law style to take because die The sleep access always make sure they could social connection and try to avoid an unhealthy way the de de-stressing. That's really important will also Kim giving advice they can do. We're is in that practices to support each other and again.

"You have said the growing up. You wanted to save your family. Y Did you think that they needed saving own tango. You're asking some I wanted to know about you. I won't be mark interviews so that when you're an even bigger star who will come back to and like all right here. I'm like listen. We always talk about group low income. I grew up with You know parents have always been hard working but you know when we first had our first home. I remember you know. We didn't have any money. We didn't have anything we got by with family supporting each other like we were all low income. We're all struggling and I remember my grandmother. Getting food stamps. And the you know the government cheese all low income kids joke about the government cheese and for me and my mom putting water into the milk into the shampoo and conditioner to make last like few weeks more month more because we couldn't afford to get more or you know the age old joke of like. Oh beans again is like every day every day. It's like it's when you grow up low income so much around you reminds you that you are and like specifically for me was just like not having one. Alpha two outfits a year for school like that that we got that was new and like maybe every two years or every year new pair of sneakers and not like a nice pair of sneakers like the stuff that like people would make fun of always dreaming about it had some Nikes like that will be dove Using the kids of Nikes was always really cool. And say you know we were low income in like a little bit of a mixed income community so there were kids kids in my school. Who did have those things that a lot but there was some kids who did having that and see. My parents struggle financially. They always made it work. They always worked hard and made it work. But you know that strain of the financial strain is always with you from a very early age because you you feel it you see it. You see how you have less than I think for a lot of kids who grow up low-income especially if you're a child of immigrants like you grow with the of well. It's so hard for us. We're here for the American dream on a bus button. I'M GONNA GET THAT. Dream I'M GONNA save everybody like we're all getting out of this together. I'm GonNa make so much money that I'm going to get a mansion and we're all going to live in the mansion and I remember my daddy's to drive us to Beverly Hills and He would point to the different houses and he was telling me high. That's where you're gonNA live Mu Ho. That's where you're gonna live like he was always. Kinda like putting into our heads like both. My parents like this. This is where you belong. You can be there and I want you to dream for that. They had that attitude even sitting at dinner tables and telling us you're going to go to college like that was enough for me to say okay. I'm going to go to college. Well not only that. You had a mother who was telling you. I think you're going to be a writer like girl you really. You read everything God yes he did. That's rare yeah now. I remember when I was little. I was like the little adult who was like so when I grow up and be a lawyer and I'm GonNa make lots of money and my mom and my dad were like me. You're really I think there'd be a writer because I would write poetry short stories and like little books and I was little I read like I devoured books like devoured when I say like I was a bookworm like girl. I wasn't the libraries of the street from here the public one. I just lived there like every week was like what's the new topic that I'm obsessed with and it was everything from hamsters to ice hockey like I wanted to learn everything And I would read a lot of buzz of fiction you know like Narnia like all the things all the things And so I would write a lot because I love stories and I love storytelling and and to me never seemed like a career though. That's something I do for fun and I love moving people whether like I used to love writing poems. That would make people cry. I just loved it. I just love that. It could write something that moves someone like and it was usually like my parents or my siblings or my aunt and uncle or my aunts and my grandma but There was something that I felt within me. Felt so good and so right to be able to move someone with my work but I didn't know that could make a career out of it so you know my parents being like I think you're going to be a writer to me was like first of all. Y'All are broke for a reason. No you can't make money being a writer like that kid who was like what you're crazy like we. This is a saying in Spanish. Almost almost. It's like well I'm GONNA go get. I'm going to be a lawyer. I'M GONNA make money but the minute I went to college. I mean the first year was really tough. But then I took this class with Harry Elam at Stanford who introduced an issue in Moraga. Who's GonNa Right? Who was the feminism? Played a huge role in the Chicano rights movement with her work and she The first thing I wrote of hers was giving up the Ghost dinner. Remember Thinking Oh. I saw her writing about her community. Far More community and of course like our communities are very similar. Obviously like even my family who've done farm work and all that I it was my people essentially and I was like wait a second. Hold up you can write it by your people and like make a career. Well first of all you can read about your people because everything i Read. Read of until that point for the most part was white people secondly you can make money doing that like it all just like for me was like this moment of like. It was just a big moment to be like. Wow I can do that. I remember the first time I read. This bridge called my back and I was like. Oh I. I grew up in Latino community and it didn't it almost didn't occur to me that it was a minority experience. And I remember reading that and be like Oh this is a radical land like this is like I saw in my own little world of not realizing how radical it was to tell your story into own your story for those women. Yeah it's so radical. It's crazy and this is again. Goes back to like give. You can't see it. You can't be it right like that. If Cherie had an ex pursued her passion in her love and I'm sure there's the people who inspired her to do the same. I wouldn't be here a needed her work. I needed her to do her work. So that I could exist in the way that existing now that is like a full circle wild moment for me. Because that's what started my journey. You know like seeing something like what the Hell I can do this like. It's so vital and so important in one of the big reasons why never gave up on this show. It was a hard road. It was a very very hard road To make this in one of the things that really brought me to show up to it fully was knowing knowing that it was gonna make a huge difference to so many people and would create more craters than we need them. You know we need these. These folks to show up every day to create their art and And Yeah so ungrateful to my parents. Who taught me as a writer in a grateful to?

They started getting them on CBD therapy. Then started weaning off some of the drugs that weren't necessary.
