As black women we are often told to suppress the traits that make us who we are in order to make those around us feel comfortable. That’s why episode 88 of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast is about unleashing our power through authenticity! 

Take our FREE QUIZ, “Are you owning your power or limiting it?“. As Black women, we often limit our dreams, our impact, our wealth & even our legacy by not owning our power & maximizing it. Knowing whether you are fully owning your power is essential for helping you learn how you can tap into more power to live the life you deserve. You’ll also get key info for discerning your purpose, prioritizing your goals and designing a sustainable plan to make it all happen.

In this episode of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of showing your authentic self in your career and never letting yourself forget your purpose.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • The things black women have to suppress in their careers in order to avoid making waves. 
  • Why it might not be “good enough” just to become a physician and why it is okay to want more. 
  • Allowing black women to find their purpose either in medicine or outside of medicine. 
  • Being authentic, staying true, and living in your purpose.
