Imagine an organization where 70 percent of the clients are young people of color, and the goal is to pair these kids with adult mentors who can help guide them through their lives. When Artis Stevens became the first Black President and CEO of Big Brothers and Big Sisters Of America in their 118-year history, he understood the significance of that moment. But his goal was to do more than just represent. He wanted to make an impact. So what would you do if the challenge was to make sure that a beloved American institution continued its tradition of placing “Bigs with Littles”, but you also wanted to ensure that this process was as inclusive as possible? Would you stick with old methods that worked “fine” 20 or 30 years ago? Or would you make sure that kids of all identities could match with a mentor that was exactly the right fit for them?

Sarah Fay (Ph.D., MFA) is an award-winning author and mental health advocate working to improve how we think and talk about our mental health by moving the conversation away from simplistic diagnoses and toward a deeper understanding of our mental and emotional lives. Her personal experience of being diagnosed with six different mental health disorders and finding no relief led her to investigate the diagnoses we receive and to write her journalistic memoir Pathological: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses, which Apple Books chose as one of the Best Books in March. Sarah has shared her story on NPR, Salon, and more. Her devotion to changing the conversation around mental health also led her to create Pathological: The Movement, a public awareness campaign devoted to giving patients agency in their mental health treatment.  Website: sarahfay.org Instagram: @sarayfayauthor  Facebook: @sarayfayauthor  Read: Pathological: The True Story Of Six Misdiagnosis  Register: The Writer’s Nonfiction Writing Workshop Special thanks to our sponsors: BetterHelp: BetterHelp is a great, affordable option for professional counseling done securely online.

What if instead of having kids in your twenties or thirties, you decided to wait to get pregnant until you had both a partner and financial stability? Catherine Gray, best-selling author of the Unexpected Joy book series, was forty-one years old when she and her partner decided to try for a baby. But what would you do if after finding out that you were pregnant, people suddenly felt as entitled to ask you personal questions and offer unsolicited advice about your “later in life” pregnancy? Would you let them get into your head and start to doubt the path you’d taken? Or would you filter out the pessimism and decide instead to remain unexpectedly optimistic and joyful?

Imagine spending eight years in prison and having no idea where you’ll go or how you’ll make a living once you’re released. Cole Richman, founder and creative director of Bottom Bunk Sneaker House, was given two hundred dollars by the state upon release and welcomed back to the rehab where he’d previously gotten sober. But what would you do if your rehab roommate showed you how you could turn a profit, simply by investing that $200 into resale sneakers? Would you play it safe and hold on to the money the state gave you? Or would you use what you’d learned on the streets and parlay that money into a business?

We held a writing contest to celebrate our third year anniversary, and in honor of National Poetry Month, we are thrilled to present you with our first, second, and third place winners in the poetry category! First Place Winner: When Addiction Wins The War, by Ariella Warner  Ariella Warner is a mom, a creator, and an entrepreneur. When she isn’t cleaning up the messes of her children and dogs, she is creating content for her soon-to-be-launched podcast. She is passionate about helping women feel seen through their own stories and the stories of other women. You can find her on her website www.singularheart.com. Second Place Winner: Challenges, Setbacks, and Failures by, Desiree Powell Desiree Powell is a Mixed Manhattan Beach-based LA native, single mom of two teenaged sons, 12 and 16, one of whom is special needs, working full time as a bartender at a gentleman’s club in west LA, currently holding her breath in anticipation waiting to find out if accepted to USC or LMU to pursue her bachelors in the fall of 2022!

During college, I explored various writing majors before receiving my degree in Journalism. I wrote for my college magazine but eventually went into technical communications post-graduation. While my career has been rewarding, I have not written anything personal in over 25 years despite being an adjunct English professor at my local community college. Enough, a poem I wrote to illustrate an ode to my English 2 class was an attempt at me dusting off my creative juices. The poem was so well received by my class and colleagues that I am now committed to writing a poem a month and building my poetry and short fiction portfolio.

Imagine becoming a drug dealer at age fifteen, but because it’s just mainly weed and LSD, you consider yourself to be more of a rebellious entrepreneur than a criminal? Ex-con, author, and filmmaker, Seth Ferranti, grew up on military bases all over the world and had a customer base everywhere he went. But what would you do if at age twenty you ended up on the US Marshall’s most wanted list? Would you surrender peacefully, figuring that the jig was up? Or, would you devise a plan to fake your death so that you could be free for as long as possible?

What if music was your passion, but after a while, you thought it might be time to give up your dream and focus on steady work, the kind that put food on the table? Singer, musician, and podcaster, Marty Ray of The Marty Ray Project, went to a concert one day and had an only one in the room experience that you really have to hear in order to believe But what would you do if that experience was just the beginning of a series of events that led you further and further away from that “steady work” to which you had resigned yourself? Would you decide it was time to stop dreaming and ignore the calling you heard? Or would you use your music to build a kingdom one soul at a time, and share your gift with the world?

Imagine you were smart, I mean rocket-scientist smart, MIT smart, and you became a nuclear engineer, while earning a PH.D. in urban planning, but you also felt a calling to become a minister. Arkansas native, Dr. Chris Jones, the son of two preachers and father to three daughters, felt called to serve the people of Arkansas, the place where he and his family had lived for the past 200 years. So what would you do if you had this amazing life as a private citizen, but your faith was calling you to give a voice to the people who have been ignored for generations? Would you and your wife stay where you were so as not to uproot your family? Or would you together decide that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few and run for Governor of the state that you called home?

Ashamed to be white? Please all races and ethnic groups have trash. White skin privilege? How about black coworkers who make the same mistakes as whites on the job, but they get more chances or don't get fired because the company us scared to take action because the person is Black. While racism exists, so does the free black pass. No black person who's heavily pushing anti racism acknowledges that. But blacks seem too look at democrats for safety, but democrats have screwed black people time and time again. Yet the blame is white citizens. Asians have disliked blacks and are openly racist, yet the focus again, is whites. Spaces that are all white? Maybe it's because there are no blacks who feel comfortable going to a primary white space. It's not that they are not accepted. Just like whites would feel odd going to an all black place. It's culture differences. Has nothing to do with skin color when it comes to that. There's lots of black colleges, no whites, but this is looked over. This podcast is nothing but race baiting.

Talk about a racial baiting podcast.... Kept asking racial questions as if they were valid and the girl said no, not at all many times....

I feel that way in the house my husband built. He has this way of telling a story to new neighbors that leaves questions hanging about me. I won't turn into him, full of revenge over a less than perfect childhood. So very tired of it all. I visit or call shortly after and will explain to who visited. With no place to go, and I have to leave, every day is living alone within alone. This podcast is excellent in every way. I wonder if living in a collective of women, like minded but keeping individuality, there might be merit in solving some women's issues. I know racism would fade fast if it even showed at all. Women band together for good.
