    LL 140: Mental Health, the Self Care ‘Trend’ & Social Media Anxiety w/ Dr. Ali Mattu

    Mental health can be a sensitive topic, so Ali shares how he takes a careful approach to mental health education on his YouTube channel, The Psych Show. A related topic we're all familiar with at Lavendaire is self care, and we explored the pros and cons of the self care 'trend': how it benefits the mental health discussion and how it's been commercialized for profit.



    And of course, we couldn't avoid the topic of social media, especially since we're both YouTubers. We talked about how your favorite apps are designed to trap you in an endless scroll and how we can all afford to be more mindful online.

    If you've ever wondered what it would take to create an app, this episode's for you! We're talking to Teri Yu, the founder of Vibely: an app to help people make meaning connections and find their community, both online and offline.



    Teri walks us through the journey of a tech startup: figuring out the purpose of your app, building the necessary tech & business skills, deciding when to take the entrepreneurship leap, getting funded, dealing with rejection and failure, and refining your app over time.



    The Lavendaire community on Vibely has been thriving, with friendships and in-person meetups all over the world, so I'm so grateful for this behind-the-scenes look into how this community came to be!

    LL 135: Anti-Bias Education & Talking Taboo Topics with Kids w/ Liz Kleinrock

    LL 135: Anti-Bias Education & Talking Taboo Topics with Kids w/ Liz Kleinrock

    Everyone is biased: you, me, your teachers, your parents, even your kids – everyone. Despite all of our differences as human beings, as Liz Kleinrock puts it, "bias is our common denominator." The question is: So what are you going to do about it?



    Liz is an anti-bias and anti-racist educator for both children and adults. Through her curriculum, social media, and upcoming book, Liz's mission is to teach us how we can recognize our biases as adults, approach tough conversations with an open mind, and start giving kids more credit than we usually do.
