The Resilience and Resistance podcast is about successful Black, Indigenous and Women of Color who are overcoming trauma and becoming resilient.
The vision for this podcast is to illuminate the dichotomy that many BIPOC female-identified individuals face in their daily lives; holding space for healing or managing past and present trauma, while maintaining a "professional" identity as they strive towards their work and other goals.

    Shaayestah Merchant - The Value of Our Names

    Dr. Shaayestah Merchant (she/her/hers) is a practicing clinical psychologist and founder of Essential Dialogues LLC in Denver, Colorado. She has been a clinician for over 15 years and has a wealth of experience working with those in marginalized communities including immigrants, people of color, and those in the LGBTQ+ communities.

She has also taught at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Merchant believes that each one of us has the capacity and resources within us to thrive and live our lives in accordance with what we value most. She has learned from her clients and through her experiences over the years as a clinician, Muslim, woman of color, and an immigrant that there is no one way to understand and deal with life’s tough issues. Her two- and five-year-old children never hesitate to remind her of this! When she is not working or parenting….wait, that’s not a thing. Dr. Merchant tries to have a healthy sense of humor when it is possible.

    Rosie Myers: Resilience is Our Super Power

    Rosie Myers: Resilience is Our Super Power

    Rosita “Rosie” Myers lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and mini-Pitbull named Chance. She has always had a love for style, fashion, and helping others find clothing that makes them feel strong and powerful. She has had the opportunity to work as a personal shopper and wardrobe stylist on the sets of tv shows and commercial photoshoots. 

     

    After the uprisings due to racial injustice, and as a Black woman with a deep understanding of oppression racial trauma, she began to ask herself the following: 

    What is most important? What matters most? How does fashion and style intersect with my thoughts? It was from these questions that Resistance Fashion was born. Her desire was to create a brand that celebrated style, fashion, black culture and resilience. Rosie wants people who wear her clothing brand to feel more powerful and celebrated than they have before. With bold statements and colors, her brand is an expression of resisting against the idea that our lives don’t matter.

A Safe Place

Love this podcast it has become a safe place for me to reflect on my own racial traumatic experiences. Empowing and enlightening stories to help anyone heal.

Invaluable stories and conversations!

I had high hopes for this podcast in knowing of Marisol and her power, and yet was amazed at how it touched me and moved me more than I had imagined it would. I felt so seen and heard, I saw and heard myself in the first two episodes I listened to. I cried, I laughed, I paused and wrote down notes for further processing. I want more and am grateful there is more. Thank you Marisol and guests for your willingness to be vulnerable, honest, and in your ability to verbalize so many of the experiences I’ve had in my years that I’ve struggled to put words to <3

Fake news

Ted was the first “white” person in the Solarte family and also the reason the rest got to come over. In sociological terms, they are framing their history to suit their current situations in order to maintain their unique standings that they seem to associate with their personalities. In reality, they are just a couple of peoplex that grew up very privileged because Mari has amazing parents. They couldn’t have a conversation in Spanish if you held a gun to their heads and I refuse to let the history of my family be set in stone by them.

Sorry guys, if you’re going to present your frames as objective reality, I’m gonna hold the mirror up.
