    I'm not built for white tears...

    Cultural competence goes both ways. And there are new realizations every day to see just how important culture can be and even a divisive force. In politics, therapy and the workplace. 
    When you can’t trust that someone of another culture shares your perspective on anything? How can you build trust.. 
    Or is it even necessary?

MSW Candidate

I am currently in an MSW program. This is my last year, but I’ve been having so much anxiety around my qualifications and obtaining an internship. While I am passionate and learning so much, I feel like I don’t know nearly as much as I should. Now, I’m in a space where I want to consume as much as I can from black social workers. I started at the beginning of this podcast just to see what space the host intended to create. Needless to say, I’m obsessed. Without knowing it, I feel more empowered by listening to a black social worker. I also feel empowered to start my podcast I felt so unqualified to start.

I haven’t even tapped the surface, but thank you for your passion, knowledge, and ability to relate so heavily to your audience. ❤️

What I've needed

I'm so mad I just found your podcast! I listened to about 6 of your podcasts in three days and Wow! A true relief! As a Black Social Worker (LSW) I haven't come across anyone else so real and yet professional! Love your podcast!!!
