I’ve done a lot of interviews, but this was my first podcast! I was so excited to chat with Sydnie, the host of the Perfect Timing Podcast. We talked about Black Girls Lead, what it takes to be a YouTuber, and more. After we finished recording, the craziest thing happened… we discovered that when we were little, we were in the SAME ballet class in Washington, DC when we were little, AND we were both in the same production of Coppélia back in 2016. The world is so small.
This summer, we were both in the Black Girls Lead Class of 2021. To apply, I had to submit a video and answer questions on their website. Was I really happy to hear that I got in? Absolutely.
