    Lara Ekmekji: the power of a mother's love

    Lara Ekmekji: the power of a mother's love

    Lara is one of the strongest women we ever met (well, talked to technically). Her story is absolutely fascinating! She was born in Lebanon but moved to Spain after being pushed to get married.

    Her marriage was not what she signed up for as she found out her husband was cheating. She wanted to leave but found out that the law in Lebanon would mean losing her only child to the father. So she stayed married for 20 years until she could leave.

    She talks about life in Lebanon, her cheating husband, traveling through war-torn Syria, living life with the sound of bombs going off, moving to Spain. It's an amazing story and shows the incredible lengths mothers will go to in order to protect their children.

    This story really demonstrates the power of a mother's love.

    We really hope you enjoy this episode!

    Lara wrote a book about her story under a pseudonym. You can purchase it on Amazon: He Never Deserved Me https://amzn.to/2CZVAXx

    Liz Gonzalez: queer badass video producer, ready to shine

    Liz is an openly gay Cuban American woman, a wonderful friend and a freaking badass video producer in Miami working with people like Jennifer Lopez! She talks us through her journey from a small town in Georgia to becoming who she is today.

    She shares the challenges she had to face growing up as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and discusses the way her friends were treated as LGBTQ+ children. She then moved to Miami and stepped into the video industry. Liz would like to eventually use her skills and talents to give a voice to the people who have been shut down, maltreated and harassed because of their sexual orientation... because of who they love.

    How can we fight racism & homophobia? How can we educate people so everyone respects and loves each other?

The hosts do Entertaining and often inspiring stories from everyday people.

Too often podcast focus on only interviewing influencers or famous people. What I love about this podcast is that the hosts recognize the fact that you don’t have to be a huge famous person to have an interesting story. Jeremie and Rosie do you such an amazing job at drawing entertaining and often inspiring stories out of the people that they meet on their day-to-day life. This is a great podcast to listen when you’re cooking or on a walk and you want to relax and get a peek into someone else's experience of reality. 5/5.
