How telling your story can create a path to healing yourself by helping others to heal. Leah M. Forney believes that the power of storytelling is but one of the many tools you can employ to heal, thrive and win. In this episode we discover how one woman overcame multiple sexually violent assaults to thrive and become a celebrated author and filmmaker of her and other women's stories. We discuss Leah’s upcoming film and book, her process in writing and why she has continued to champion the stories of Black women. We discuss motherhood and how our childhood role models shape our initial understanding of the world. It’s an episode not to miss if you want to have a deeper understanding of healing through trauma, storytelling or women’s lived experiences.
