Embracing Enough is a podcast that showcases the stories of women and girls - unapologetically. It muses about our journey to accepting ourselves just as we are to arrive at the fundamental belief that we are enough.
Together, we explore ideas, stories, experiences, race, mass media and pop culture - anything that reflects the collective experience around what it takes to embrace the belief that we are enough - from the most courageous moments to those that scare us.
Becoming Aware of the Stories We Have Been Told
On this final episode of Season 1 of Embracing Enough, Dina talks with her sister, Maria and her brother, Angelo about the messages they received as children and how it impacted their journey to feeling enough. From childhood memories to talking about hope for Angelo's daughter Sophia, the Scippa trio come together in laughter and reflection. Join in for this special episode where three siblings pour into each other and reflect on how despite all of the confusing messages received along the way, they have always been able to come together to create joy with one another.
Nothing to Prove
It’s about time we kicked heteronormativity to the curb! Never heard of the term before? It’s the idea that binary gender identity and heterosexual orientation (meaning, there are only two sexual orientations and genders) are the norm. In this episode, we discuss with Kayani and Chett what their experiences have been when your identity doesn't align with heteronormativity.
In this honest and brave discussion, we unpack the pressure of having to explain yourself - things like who you are attracted to, how you identify, and other insensitive, inappropriate questions. Certainly, there are a lot of labels. For many people, they are a way of identifying themselves and discovering their identities; while others choose to avoid labels altogether. Our conversation helps us uncover that no matter how you identify, there is nothing to prove when you completely accept the fullness and honesty of who you are at your core.
Intimacy is a quality we normally associate with enduring relationships. However, in order to have these types of relationships in our own lives, we need to experience true closeness not only with another person, but with ourselves. In this episode, we untangle how worthiness, understanding, grace, and sometimes forgiveness, can help us create the intimacy we want in our relationships. Buckle up for a powerful discussion where we unpack what intimacy allows for from Tamara Lynn and Leslie Buttafly Soul Taylor - two seasoned facilitators and trainers who specialize in transformational coaching with an incredible organization, Momentum Education. They share their insight on the intimacy we create for ourselves, in our relationships, and what that means for the connection we cultivate in this world.
How High Can You Jump?
We all feel the pressure to prove ourselves, but when is enough ENOUGH? In this episode, Dina will discuss her journey about the never-ending search for validation in the workplace. She reflects on how no matter how high she jumped, the only validation that mattered in the end was her own.

Ask Me Anything: Reflection and Something Different
In a switch up of the usual Ask Me Anything episode, Dina chooses to share three strategies that you can employ today to embrace the body you are in. She also shares why while the conversation on body image has to stay top of mind, we also need to get beyond it because the real work lies ahead.
Power Behind a Lens
Boudoir? (Gasp...I could never) But why not? Why do we need an excuse to celebrate ourselves? We get up close and personal with DC-based boudoir photographer, Julie Socher (IG: boudoirbyjuliesocher) about what boudoir photography is and isn't; how empowering it truly can be, and how beautiful images are captured given its vulnerable form of imagery. We debunk the myths and explore how boudoir photography not only offers a way to explore one's sensuality; but how it also offers the possibility to embrace one's very essence through a powerful journey of self-love and acceptance. Julie reads us in why she chose boudoir (and how boudoir really chose her) and the profound effect this experience has on a woman’s self-worth.
