Don't Hold Back has returned from its hiatus! In this episode, I give y'all some personal updates as well as a run down of the recent societal events that grabbed my attention. This episode is short and sweet and I look forward to creating more episodes in the upcoming weeks! Thank you for listening!
This week I take a moment to discuss the gruesome murder of Nia Wilson, an 18 year old black woman who was killed on a train station in the Bay Area by a white man. Her death along with countless other events this week, reinforce the idea that black women are not protected and cared for in this society. Listen to my thoughts and of course feel free to reach. This is an episode to and for black women.

Now what you are "supposed" to do no longer feels right. This week we talk about post grad depression and what happens when the biggest moment of your life is more bitter than sweet.
Kanye West has been on the edge for a while and I am not happy about it. In the past few weeks, West's Twitter has made a return, along with some interesting ideas. Alex, a self-proclaimed Kanye West stan (super fan) came on the show to tell me how he maintains his respect and admiration for Kanye West even in the midst of controversy.
