Episode 6: Taking Pride in Your Whole Ass Self

About this Episode

“Today you are You, that is truer than true.

There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

- Dr. Seuss

This season, we've been leaning in to our message of authenticity, self-love, and the urge to give zero f**ks! On this episode, we're digging deeper into why it's so important to live life on your own terms and enjoy the freedom of embracing all facets of yourself. In addition, we’re celebrating Pride Month and sharing a few stories with our absolute fave, Dr. Kareem Willis. You'll hear why he's the real original member of the I Come As One 10K community! Kareem is also giving us a lesson on how to show up and show out—and it’s all about crushing boundaries and norms to safely be what he calls your whole-ass self.
