Episode Description

“The more of me I be, The clearer I can see.” Rachel Archelaus Do you have clarity of purpose and direction? Host Brigitte Jia launches the program with the chapter on Clarity pennedby Bud Bilanich from the forthcoming book, Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers by Cynthia Brian. Your definition of success is what’s right for you – not anyone else. Bud advises to take time and think about your clarity of purpose. How do you define success for yourself? Keep that purpose and definition of success in mind as you make life and career decisions. The book “Bye, Bye Black Skin” by Janae Washington touches on the challenges young black women and girls have encountered and have to overcome. It’s an uplifting story about a young Black girl who goes to a predominantly other race school and is teased because she looks different. Her mother shows her how to overcome bullying and love herself and the skin she’s in. We may look different, but we are the same inside. Clarity is beautiful!
