Some Of My Favourite People. Season 4, EP 2. Ada, Different Voice Initiative.
Ada is a Youtuber, social commentator and content creator based in the U.K focused on race and racism. She started the project not seeing a more diverse range of thought presented when it comes to talking about social and political issues, so a different voice was created.
We had a cool conversation about Ada's views and opinions. We got into acknowledging looking at the balance between personal responsibility and social causatives of disparate outcomes, going against the grain of popular ideas, and giving people hope and a reason to be optimistic.
