Everybody Loves an Underdog, Episode 108

There are a lot of questions that adoptees ask themselves surrounding their purpose. It’s part of our nature to want to make sense of why things are the way they are. By doing that, it can unravel the power that lives inside of you.

Everybody Loves an Underdog, Episode 108

From Culture Shock to Cultural Awakening, Episode 107

When you deny something within yourself you will deny the same thing in someone else. This episode is a celebration of my time in Lexington, KY. I could talk for hours about the people, the experiences, and the memories I have there... But I am forever grateful for the awakening that happened for myself and how I view the world. Go Cats!
