Ep 14: Unashamed - A Conversation on Identity with Leah V.

This month on the podcast, we’re continuing our discussion about identity. And our special guest, Leah V, had a lot of great things to say on the topic! 

Leah Vernon is a content creator, motivational speaker, hijabi social media influencer, and newly published author! In this conversation, she shares candid details about what it’s really like to be herself with such a large following. 

We spoke about why she reclaimed the word “fat” and how she finds the courage to face her fears every day. We also dive into her experiences dealing with trolls on social media and preserving her identity in the midst of big changes. And of course, Leah tells us about her new book Unashamed: Musings of a Fat, Black Muslim and the journey that led her to write it. 

This conversation is jam-packed with gems and personal stories. It’s definitely an episode you want to tune in! Enjoy it and make sure to share it with a friend who will too 🙂
