November 7: Speaking Truth, Part 1
I had the honor of having a very candid and transparent conversation with an incredible soul, JamiQuan over on her podcast, “The Me I Am Tomorrow”.
This wasn’t easy. Our stories are hard shit that we, especially Black women, don’t talk about it. In this first episode, I give a little context into what “Little Lacey” was like growing up and what I experienced. I’ve never been more nervous to share information in my life, more than coming out itself. We discuss identity and the role our environments play in shaping who we are, in conjunction with our biological make up. We then plunge into talking about growing up with Christian beliefs and who we were supposed to be in relationship with self and other people.
Words from JamiQuan:
Each guest is like discovery for me. I learn who I am, who I thought I was, who I want to be through my journey.
This was an enormous place of unexpected vulnerability. I was provided the opportunity to do EXACTLY what I had envisioned… maybe?
My goal with this podcast is to provide a safe place for authenticity, respect, vulnerability within myself so as I sat with Lacey’s.
As her story was unfolding I was captivated!
An amazing story teller
We engaged on what has been challenging topics, for most if not all of us.
Strangers no more we threw aside the curtains of our journeys:
Yet we were nothing alike
Ohhh the joy of appreciation, acknowledging our similarities our humanity it allows us to dive, roll, cry, laugh in startled recognition.
To look up and find that there was more waiting, so we did another set.
And then it was.. another
And I appreciate that she gave the time to share her story.
I look forward in sharing it with you
