Hey Designers,

Today we are talking to Alexis Shepard, also known as the AfroEducator.  Alexis shares with us her story of leaving the classroom and her vision for how educators can change the stories they tell themselves to create a more fulfilling teaching experience.

Even if you are not an educator, you can learn much about reenvisioning your life from this conversation with Alexis.

In this episode, you will learn how to flip the narrative you’ve been telling yourself so that your story, your job, and your life feel fulfilling and uplifting.
