So join us as Amber reveals helpful insights and reflections on using your privilege, and explore how you can reshape your perspective and inspire you to engage with the world more intentionally and thoughtfully.

“It's simple, it's not easy. And those are different. Things that are easy, you can do mindlessly, you can casually flitter about, and it just will happen. But things can be simple, but you have to still be intentional about it.” - Amber Cabral

“I want you to think about your place in the experiences that you're having with others. I want you to be thoughtful about how you communicate. I want you to be thoughtful about how someone will receive that. I want you to be prepared for the possibility that you've f*cked up and somebody is going to need to let you know and that you're able to receive that feedback.” Amber Cabral

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while but this last episode with Felicia from Hemingway’s just blew me away! Talk about rising above her own stranded phase and blossoming into more than she could have ever imagined. Such an inspiring episode about that no matter what valleys we go through, something as simple as a phone call can change our life. Thank you Jessica for this podcast! 💕
