In today's episode, we have a beautiful conversation between Dajohn White and Prince Jimmar from the Rebels for Peace in Chicago and Brian Gleason, an LA-based therapist who's been working with youth for over 20 years. We're excited about this one, as it is really candid conversation between people from different backgrounds, ages, and upbringing that discussed our common humanity, connection, and resilience. It shows how we can connect in both joy and in struggle.
Brian brings his own beautiful and personal story of learning how to accept himself fully and how the struggles he had as a young kid was what later drew him to working with young people and supporting them - and in the end making it his lifes work. The Rebels for Peace share from their perspective of growing up as a young person in South-side Chicago and how that experience inspired them to now be leaders of youth. We love how these seemingly different people can have the same story and the metaphor that can be for mending a divided society.
