    About the Interviewee:
    Full-Time Black Woman is your safe space for you to be your full self. Our goal is to create an environment where Black professional women can discuss the ups and downs we experience in corporate America and entrepreneurship while balancing our many roles and responsibilities in life.

    Esha Belle
    Hey friends, I’m Esha Belle.  I was born and raised in the Midwest.  Yet I studied and became an adult in the Northeast.  My corporate America experience spans a decade-plus of environments ranging from cubicles to couches.  Along with my ever-changing career, I’ve been able to dream and grow fascinating entrepreneurial ventures.  
    In my free time (if that truly exists) I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, and creating.

    Aleese Real
    Hey, y’all! I’m Aleese Real, and the other half of the dynamic duo behind Full-Time Black Woman. 
    I’m a southern belle with a big-city style. After over a decade in corporate America, I’m a full-time professional who knows her stuff.
    When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. You might find me at a jazz lounge, thrift shopping or perhaps trying out a new restaurant. Most often, I’m home on the couch watching Frasier or anime while looking up crafting ideas and travel destinations.

    Finding Your True Voice Through Tragedy with Storyteller Devan Sandiford

    Episode Summary:
    Sometimes we feel like it's much easier to shut our eyes to injustices because they may not be affecting us directly, but in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." In this episode guest, Devan Sandiford and I discuss how we found our voices through all the injustices and made room to be our full selves.

Devan is now a published writer, an award-winning storyteller, and the program manager of community engagement at The Moth. His stories have been featured in the Washington Post, The Moth Radio Hour and Podcast, NPR-affiliate KNKX, and more. Devan has also been interviewed on parenting, race, and identity in The New York Times and Washington Post. He’s currently working on his debut book—Human, Like You: Confessions of a Six-year-old Father.
