Sinopse

Well hello and welcome to our podcast!We are Adeola and Salem, two Nigerian Diaspora women taking on some difficult topics in a fun and challenging discourse. By day, we are both yoga instructors - with Adeola working as a trauma yoga therapist & Salem teaching yoga classes to stressed out professionals. We also have a wide variety of other things we do; Salem practices law and is the founding partner of the U.S branch of Afangideh Global while Adeola is the chief content curator at DistinguishedDiva.com. We believe there is incredible power in hearing the voices of under-represented people. For too long stories of Africans have been told by Western voices and with this podcast you get to hear the raw and untold stories of two diaspora African women - whose identities have been shaped just as much by our African experiences as by our western experiences.

We tackle the unique ability within Nigeria to have majority non-domination, and how we as a culture are successful at dismantling the idea of tolerance by creating spaces for people to co-exist within the structures of their own unique identities. We end this conversation with a recognition that Nigeria
