There is a constant challenge in speaking about relationships and falsely labeled stigmas I feel we need to normalize because NO ONE is immune to them. So come join me every Saturday, while I debunk some myths and misconceptions in relationships, social injustices, business, and mental health in order to normalize discussions around these topics one chat at a time. In the process, I'm sure you can laugh, learn, and gain insight to conversations you would be reluctant to participate in or have access to; ultimately bringing us closer as a human race.
