Hey ya’ll, I am Valencia, your host of Define U Radio After Dark Conversations. Have you ever wondered what real people really talk about when the gloves are off? Do you think you are the only one who thinks like you do about the world today? Are you ready to hear adult conversations?In today’s world, the ignorant and biased people are loud. They don’t represent the “silent” majority’s views or how we really feel. On After Dark, I have conversations with friends of mine about life and what is on our mind. Sometimes, we agree and are on the same page. Other times we disagree, but either way everyone’s opinion is respected and represented here. Valencia is an author, speaker, and a business owner. Most of all, she is a wife, mother and a black woman maneuvering everything from foster parenting to dealing with racism to questioning systematic programming by the media.“Have conversations that mean something!”Join the conversation every Tuesday for new episodes (unless we are on a mental health break) and start a conversation with your friends, family, and foes.

Journey to Success
I love listening to Valencia share her journey. I know our story does not define us but it’s an honor to witness her success and seeing her continue growing. Thanks for bringing us many more vulnerable stories of women who are rising and being unapologetically walking in their power. Looking forward to hear more interviews in 2018.
