New Podcast

If y’all have been following me on Twitter or Instagram, you should already know I do the most. On top of my regular job, I write short stories, poetry, articles, have a small zine press and attend events that deal with all that constantly. But I’d been lacking something ever since another podcast I was a part of went on a six month hiatus. So I wanted to create a solo podcast.

Enter Secret Scholar, a podcast focused on giving marginalized voices a dope ass platform to highlight their studies, hustles, hopes, worries, loves– whatever they want. The reason it’s named Secret Scholar (and maybe I’ll get more into it in a future episode) is because of the way I talk and present myself. Many people write me off immediately and underestimate my intelligence. But I’m going to turn it around and use the fact that people assume my level of understanding as a weapon. I want to use this podcast to highlight these voices that need to be heard and hopefully get better at public speaking along the way. You can listen on the player or on Google Podcasts, Audioboom, Stitcher, Tune In, Spotify and more.

April Recap

April was about stepping back and really wondering where I want to take my work next. What I want to focus on in terms of creating. There are a couple of publications that I’ll be featured in coming out next month so stay tuned for that.

It’s been a long time coming but Brown Girl Travels is finally out! The zine is an amazing 100+ pages of stories, pictures, poems, guides- pretty much everything you could want if you’re a WOC solo traveler. Check it out on Instagram.
