(Part 2 of my conversation with the shining light Nikki Webber Allen)

This final episode of the season, part 2 of 2 parts, is particularly powerful and remains relevant for me and the CIC crew.  Nikki Webber Allen is an Emmy award winning producer with a Ted Talk (yes THE TED Talk), currently at 2.3 million views and counting.  Nikki talks openly about her own experiences with mental health, she describes her devastating loss of a loved one to mental illness and she openly shares with our audience her coping strategies, means of support and efforts to empower other through her nonprofit, I Live For...

In my closing thoughts for the season, I thanks loads of people which you'll hear and see on this episode (namely my family). I also promised, however, to name the woman who encouraged me to go for it and start my podcast.  I only know her by her IG handle @rachaelroyds but I love her because she is the person who gave me the courage to press forward.  Also thanking Ron Funches and Halston Ray because they both believe in me and went out of their way to get me set up.  Wow! It makes me teary just to think about how kind so many strangers and new friends have been to me.

We'll be back for Season 2!!  Stay with us ya'll!
