“you need to practice self care as a black woman for survival”
 
Vee is a young East African girl and the host and producer of the At The Table Podcast which is all about centering women, wellness and self care - particularly women of colour. She is currently doing her second masters, an MBA in Global Business in London and hopes to start her PhD this fall in Gender Studies and decolonising knowledge. Her interests include poetry, wellness, feelings - the beauties of life including God, yoga, music, art and nature.
 
Join us for a conversation on how Vee stays grounding during times of uncertainty (2:07), what role religion plays in her life (5:05), what music makes her dance (13:33), the inception of the At The Table podcast and its importance (14:56), where she has found representation (22:03), Bell Hooks and black women being safe to fully exist in theory (24:07), advice on finding your voice and speaking up (27:39), poetry and hip hop (29:42), importance of sisterhood (37:50), boundaries (41:21) and advice to her younger self (44:07).
