Domestic violence and self care – An interview

Domestic violence and self care – An interview

Hello all yuh! So last night I did a Facebook Be Live with Mellany Paynter of Mellany Motivates. Mellany is all about promoting self-care among women of color. In my last post, I shared an audio interview I did with her. Last night, we turned the tables. We talk about the catalyst behind FemmePowered, my abuse story, self-care and women of color.

This is the first ever video interview where I share my story and experience with domestic violence and the strategies I used to find healing and wholeness. It’s raw, open and my truth. Check it out below and feel free to leave a comment.

Carlana Charles is the visionary and editor-in-chief of FemmePowered. She is a womanist, writer, speaker, story midwife and facilitator of meaningful and engaging conversations. When she is not working in or on FemmePowered, she can be found resting, baking, reading or scribbling furiously in her journal whilst sipping wine or coffee, sometimes both at the same time. She is currently working on her first book and hopes to release it in September 2018.

    So, so powerful! I gave a few people that need to hear this! I will link the post to them. Thank you for leaving! Had you not, you would not be here to empower other females. Much love and respect, Carlana!
