Listening, learning and loving it

The complexity of identity and race fascinates me. I am on a lifelong journey to discover the power of listening and acting with compassion. ‘Otherness’ is among the best and most focused podcasts that educates me and expands my circle of compassion....and I love supporting the creative work of women!!
