Fall 2023: Session 280 (Winning and Grieving with Evingerlean D. Blakney, Ph.D.)

Behind all of the wins—there have been many days of uncontrollable tears and clouds of unknowns about how I’d come out of such darkness. This has been one of the most difficult and painful years of my life, and I can't say that I’m through the worst of it. In the same breath, the triumphs have been undeniably uncanny, and the depth of my gratitude and joy just cannot be articulated. What I can tell you is to get up and carry on, my love. Trust that the sun will rise again. Remain steadfast and always be thankful. Winning and grieving can coexist. Allow yourself to feel all of it. Happy 1-2-3-1-2-3! 🥂

Description by The First-Gen Lounge
The First-Gen Lounge, an award-winning podcast, is the FIRST show of its kind and #1 in the world for first-generation scholars and professionals. It is a place where we come to kick it and talk honestly about all things life. You’ll cry. You’ll laugh. You’ll grow… and you’ll be inspired while listening to motivating stories and valuable lessons from fellow first-gens. In every session, you’re going to get practical strategies for becoming the best version of yourself. From entrepreneurship, mentorship, graduate school advice, boosting productivity, finances, networking, facing adversity, and changing the world around you—we chat about it all (you can expect quite a few laughs, too)! More importantly, here YOU WILL find a strong community that will encourage you to keep growing each day—we’re people who break barriers and defy the odds but understand there is still much ahead of us; therefore, leaning on, and learning from, each other is what we do. So, go ahead and grab a seat, get real comfortable, and join the conversations every Thursday at 9pm EST! Learn more at #TheFirstGenLounge
