N.A.H. Podcast Episode 1: Social Work, Education, Race & More
The very first episode of N.A.H. Podcast is here! In this Podcast I had the great honor of interviewing Social Worker and friend l o t i Walker, who shares about her journey in Social Work. We discuss race, class, art, self-care, education, and more.
Many thanks to l o t i for being my very first guest and making her experiences accessible to others. There really is something powerful about telling our stories.
