Stay True to Yourself with Dr. Guerda Nicolas
In this episode, I'm joined by Dr. Guerda Nicolas for a conversation centered around staying true to yourself, and the challenges that can face underrepresented groups in the field of academia. Dr. Nicolas shares the importance of learning into your unique gifts and talents, while recounting her own experiences as a Haitian psychologist with a 30-year career in the field. She also provides exciting updates about the organization she co-founded to advance Haitian-led investment in the country and its people.
