Happy Friday everyone! So excited to finally tell you all about the new additions to the blog and podcast I am bringing!
To start off, I can’t thank you all enough for the support you have brought to this platform since created in September. You have taught me to be comfortable in my own skin and use my voice to do more than I had initially planned for this website. I am forever grateful to those who supported the creation of She Speaks Diversity. Thank you to the women who cam on the podcast and shared their amazing journey’s, and thank you to the listeners who took time to give me feedback. You are the reason I keep going.
Moving forward here, You may be wondering what will come next… and when! I am so please to announce that season two is already being worked on! I have been posting that I am in need of a co-host for a while, and I want to thank all of you who did, I have found the perfect co-host!
Our newest host on She Speaks Diversity is….. Mahnoor Syed! Mahnoor and I are both Muslim women who are trying to pave way in the media industry with our work. While I focus on more podcast and print works, Mahnoor is all about video, television and graphic design. This brings me to my next point…
YOU ask and I listen! Many people have been asking for a Youtube channel and visuals rather than just the podcast itself. Mahnoor and I both agreed that we want our season to include visuals for you all! You can soon find us on Youtube! Once episode one of the season is posted, we will have the page linked for you to watch our interview, and to subscribe 🙂
We have chosen Wednesday as the day of the week we share our podcasts and videos with you all. It is going to be a biweekly and we will keep you posted via social media.
To get to what the season will be about, we will be featuring topics pertaining to minority communities, and stereotypes within them. The season title will be: “She Speaks Diversity: The Veils of America.” Mahnoor and I both wear hijab so we wanted to come up with a title mentioning that in a way.
We are so excited to give you episode one soon and hear your feedback! #Diversewoman
Speaking of the blog famous hashtag… Let’s get to the challenge!
I want to take a moment to thank those who have participated in the Diverse Woman challenge, and told us what is special about you and what makes you different from the rest. Diversity is so much more than just your cultural roots, it’s what makes you, you. With that being said, here are the entries I received! Again thank you all, and I cannot wait to share what’s to come! #Diversewoman
