#23 Jaye Parson - The Celebrity Fashion Designer to Watch! (The most inspirational story you‘ll hear today!)
Jaye Parson has a story that will sound so familiar to many, and yet is so unique that only he could have walked that path. Jaye Parson started out as a regular kid in South London, who then went down a path resulting in him being stabbed at 17 years old. Fast forward to now, he has become one of the names to watch out for! As a music artist, High Celebrity Fashion designer and an upcoming motion picture artist, he is one of the uber talented!
Jaye Parson is one of the few that has designed clothes for Floyd Mayweather, Ashanti, Erykah Badu, Omarion, and so many more! We ask him about his favourite Celebrities to work with and his least favourite. We talk about how the zero sized model mentality has righteously died and why we need to be dressing for everyone and anyone.
We’re also talking about the South London scene, what the real influences are and how to make it big.
He is a real life Role Model for so many and so much to learn from!
#22 Dating in Color! The book that everyone is talking about! Do women have a Shelf-life? Why is it different dating as a POC? How to avoid a narcissistic person?
Media across the globe is filled with exhausting levels of opinions about dating. From this weeks Love Island episode to this months new dating app! If it isn’t a review of Hinge or Tinder, its another meme on instagram portraying how sad being single is.. and trust me I’ve emulated almost very single one of those memes in real life. So this episode is dedicated to all the folks out there who can tick all of the above on that sheet. We are joined by newly published author Angele Sandha!! Also known from her instagram handle @ask.angeele. We’re going to be talking about Dating in Colour, which is also the name of her book, which btw you should immediately download to your kindle right now! One question I have is about women having a so-called ‘shelf life’ and why we go out there looking for super masculine or feminine energy partners. And I’m not just talking about the tough exteriors to dating that we all know so well, Angele and I talk about experiences, history and how sociology or human behaviours can feed into our choices!

The stigma around therapy as a POC and what he thinks its important to take it seriously, even if the community is still a few steps behind.
