    Grief, Hope, Resiliency & the Beast

    Grief, Hope, Resiliency & the Beast

    In this fifth episode of Nobody's Damsel host Ellie Coburn is joined by the amazing Embo Tshimanga to share a bit of her story of resiliency and rising, unpack the absolute ride that was 2020 and discuss the future of America. Embo shares the way that the spotlight on Black Lives Matter shaped her 2020 and awoke in her the desire to surround herself with affirming community, speaks about her personal experience as a Black person intersectional to predominately white churches, and shares her hopefulness for rising above the many systematic beasts that were once in her path. This episode was recorded before the Capitol attack, however, its themes remain strongly relevant to the year ahead: a year full of inevitable obstacles while still marked with all the potential of hope and redemption.

    Ladylike

    Ladylike

    Join host Ellie Coburn and the incredible Julia Paxton as they unpack what it's like to experience mental illness, queerness and feelings of being different in communities that are built on the expectation that one will fit the mold. For the first time in her life Ellie goes deep publicly about her experience with mental illness as an adolescent and Julia unpacks how her experience was shaped and her healing was delayed by both internal and external pressures. Both Ellie and Julia share the deep and profound healing that comes with being true to yourself and tell it like it is when it comes to their rejection of the expectation to be "ladylike".
