    Spring 2023: Session 251 (History Notes: Black First-Gen and Black Greek with Dr. Eve)

    Spring 2023: Session 251 (History Notes: Black First-Gen and Black Greek with Dr. Eve)

    We're throwing it back with this one. I'd been wanting to do a show about being a Black Greek for years. I never really got around to it because, if I’m for real, I hadn’t fully grasped how I wanted to approach it. While there are several angles that I considered, I thought I’d start this conversation focusing on how being first-generation and a member of a Black Greek-letter organization (BGLO) has changed my life. Warning: I'm heavy on the Delta Sigma Theta this in one, but... in my defense... it's J13. (And, so you know now, I've been rounding up a Divine Nine First-Gen Squad because this is just the start of a series of conversations to come.) Don't forget to get connected with me on all LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook at @Evingerlean.

    Spring 2023: Session 250 (Puttin' Yourself First with Dr. Eve)

    I’ve talked to a few folks recently, ages 24 - 62, and all of them mentioned putting themselves first. In my time reflecting on the conversations, I found myself realizing a few things when it comes to actually doing so, and I like to share what I discovered with you.

A Gem of a Resource

Dr. Eve is so engaging and shares much needed information to help first-gen college students. I love listening and share the show with everyone.

Inspirational, Energetic and Real

As a new business owner this podcast really speaks to me. Dr. Eve is raw and real in her encouragement of first-gens and business owners. It was honestly kind of the podcast I never knew I needed, I can not wait for more. Giving honest advice with energy and purpose behind it. It feels like a conversation with a knowledgeable friend and that is amazing.

Raw, Honest, and Genuine

It seems like a lot of podcasts, especially ones that try to give life advice, don’t come from a genuine place. This podcast does, and does in spades.

I will actually use what I’ve learned while listening, which isn’t something I can say for every podcast I listen to. The First-Gen Lounge is great, and I’m excited to keep coming back to hear more.
