Many people struggle with achieving “Self-Love”, and it is very common for them to deny this fact. For this reason, the queens and I (Alana Avis @beautybfly / Ariel Paredes @relworld3 and Basia Powell @basiapowell , decided that we needed to do a show on this topic. One of the reasons we do the Ask Basia Video Podcast is to remind women that they need to live their best lives. It does not matter what you achieve in your life, if self love is not one of those achievements, then it is not worth it.
This was a special show. Our guests were, Dr Sydelle Ross, an Anesthesiologist and Pain Specialist, as well as, a classically trained singe. We were also joined by actress, model and dancer, Mia Mayweather. They both came through with their authenticity and positivity. It was a great show. Take a look at this episode and their bios below:
