Enjoyable and inspiring

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast and found it inspiring even though I am not in media. I am in the policy world but I think many of the insights apply! I also like the segment at the end about would I have done something differently (Yes, especially as a women of colour and an immigrant professional in a largely white policy world).

The world needs #mediagirlfriends!

The world needs #mediagirlfriends! The podcast’s message of “by lifting her up I am lifted up too, as are we all” is a balm in this era of scarcity thinking that there isn’t enough success to go around. And the platform for many different perspectives and experiences ... it’s everything! I’m so glad and grateful Nana aba created it.
