    (Racial) Impostor Syndrome

    (Racial) Impostor Syndrome

    BLACK LIVES MATTER. Find out how you can help here and here.


    “I’m a fraud.”

    “I don’t fit in.”

    “I am not enough…”

    These are just some of the feelings we have experience as mixed women of color. When it comes to racial identity, feeling “enough” for our perspective halves has been a struggle. Some of these feelings fall into the category of Imposter Syndrome (IP). In this episode we examine this phenomenon and how we as Biracial Unicorns can navigate through it.

    In this episode we:


    Briefly discuss the origins of Imposter Syndrome (or Imposter Phenomenon)
    Share how we’ve personally experienced this phenomenon
    Describe how Racial Imposter Syndrome can manifest and the negative impact it has on establishing racial identity.

    We also have a couple of resources we mention in the episode. You could take the Clance IP Scale test and see if Imposter Syndrome is something you might be battling: https://paulineroseclance.com/pdf/IPTestandscoring.pdf

    Afterwards, explore the different types of Imposters: https://interactioninstitute.org/racial-imposter-syndrome/

    In this particular episode we strongly encourage anyone who relates to this phenomenon to find a safe community to express these feelings to. Expressing your “imposter-ness” is one way to dismantle the lie of inadequacy. Remember Unicorns, you are enough!

    A couple of previous episodes we mention on today's show:
    Episode 11: Mixed Race. Half Enough - https://biracialunicorns.pinecast.co/episode/7ec9fa541a074d24/mixed-race-half-enough
    Episode 45: Mixed Mental Health and Identity w/ Brittney George - https://biracialunicorns.pinecast.co/episode/64215913cfaf445e/mixed-mental-health-identity-with-brittney-george

    We end the episode on high note with our Happy Place hint It’s fizzy, floral, and fabulous!

    Mixed Mental Health & Identity with Brittney George

    BLACK LIVES MATTER. Find out how you can help here and here.


    In this episode we sit down for a chat with Brittney George (Mixed Mental Health) to revisit mental health from a mixed perspective, this time with an additional focus on searching for identity as a mixed race person.

    Holistic therapist, Identity coach, and powerful Biracial Unicorn Brittany George joins us today on the podcast.
    Brittany George, interviewing from Canada, brings her professional and personal experience to the show as we ask and discuss questions about racial identity. We start off our interview with are favorite question, “what are you”. Then throughout the episode we also discuss:

    • The importance of terminology when identifying ourselves racially.
    • Recognize that your identity can evolve and change as we learn (or unlearn)
    new information – It’s ok to change your mind.
    • Training people how to treat us.

    Brittany also shares some impactful insight on:

    • The relationship between racial identity and mental health.
    • The necessity of cultural competence within the counseling world.
    • The complexity of racial identity within the Black Lives Matter movement.
    • What do you do when those closest to you aren’t ready to discuss race.

    *A little bonus * We also share the love story of Dani and Dameca.

    We definitely want to share our Happy Place with our lovely guest hint it’s going to give you magical outdoor vibes, plant baby feels, and a rainbow connection.
    You can find more info about Brittney on her instagram page @mixedmentalhealth or her website.

    Death to Diet Cuture

    Death to Diet Cuture

    BLACK LIVES MATTER. Find out how you can help here and here.


    In this episode we take a look at diet culture

    Diets have been around for centuries. They have infiltrated our lives through books, pills, media, and even reality shows. In this episode we take a closer look at diet culture and how it has shaped our perception of beauty and health.

    We define diet culture as a system that uses restriction or suppression to obtain a certain physical appearance. These systems also tend to equate happiness, success, and fulfillment in direct relationship with a number on a scale. To be clear, mindful nutrition and self-care of one’s body is heavily encouraged here at Biracial Unicorns…not a particular dress size.

    This episode we share our own experiences with body image and our own struggles for body positivity and health. Though the ideal cis female body type might fluctuate in proportions from decade to decade it still leans in favor of a slender European frame. What does this mean for BIPOC women? How does this impact body types that are genetically curvy?

    We can’t talk about diet culture without mentioning food! In past episodes we have mentioned the deep connection between culture and food. Is there cultural food shaming when it comes to eating healthy? I mean, don’t we all like seasoned vegetables?

    We also touch on the body positivity movement and the usage of the word “fat”. Is the word fat helpful or harmful towards body acceptance? We briefly mention the bias of the fashion industry and its favoritism towards slimmer sizes.

    In our wrap up we ask ourselves: how do we put an end to diet culture? We discuss ways to dismantle the colonist standards of beauty and also introduce practical steps towards a healthy relationship with food.

    Here’s the link to intuitive eating and the podcast mentioned in the episode:

    https://encouragingdietian.com/intuitive-eating-for-the-culture-001/

    https://www.intuitiveeating.org/10-principles-of-intuitive-eating/

    You know we always like to end in our “Happy Place”, hint they’re both ironically somehow food related.
