Can you imagine what it would be like to live in your body, as you are now… but somewhere else? Living your current experience in familiar land offers but a singular perspective. But being you, in an entirely different environment would change everything. 

This week’s guest, Fatou Sy talks about what it’s like to grow up in a place where the people don’t look like you. And how being different shaped how she perceived and experienced herself. What it’s like to be a woman varies, depending on where you are on the planet… go figure. 

In this episode we explore:

What it’s like to live in a black female body on three different continents.

Moving forward by moving your body. 

How someone’s story can help you shift. 

Learning to love the skin you’re in.
