When I was a child, I desperately wanted to feel like I belonged.
As one of the only Brown girls at school in my overwhelmingly White neighborhood, I not only stuck out like a sore thumb, but I was also the target for relentless racist bullying that went on for years.
For a long time, even after the bullying stopped, I had very little self-confidence. I knew I had great potential — I was a big nerd after all (you’ll have to ask me sometime what my favorite book as a child was!) — but I felt so small most of the time.
It took me decades to make progress in overcoming my insecurities and feel more confident in who I am, which meant a lot of healing work, including years of therapy, to get to a point where I truly feel good about who I am.
In this video, I share a bit about my journey to unlock my confidence and why it’s so critical to peel back the layers of insecurity that might be holding you back from both living with authenticity and reaching your full potential.
