Ep. 7 - A peak into a year with Julia

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

I didn't want to do this episode, but I've been thinking about this conversation since the March 16th attack in Atlanta.

Trevor asked me what I would do differently, or what I wish I had known then....and honestly, it's a work in progress. I'm STILL working on unbottling myself, being loud about what I want, and being ok with taking care of my needs.

This episode is by no means an explanation or breakdown of anti-Asian hate, the hypersexualization of Asian women, and the surge of hate crimes all over the country. If you are looking to learn more, I have found these Instagram accounts incredibly helpful to listen to. These folks have put a lot of their soul out there, and it's been healing to witness how they model vulnerability, care, and taking up space.
