Speaking for myself, having a child has been incredibly rewarding, however, there are some questions I wish I had answered for myself before having a baby. Everything is working out well so far but I would have been better prepared had I pondered some of these questions. So this is my offering to you.
Despite travel having become more accessible, and about $63 Billion dollars (yup, that’s a B!) poured into the industry by the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) community annually--particularly Black travel--there is still a lingering idea that travel is an expensive luxury reserved for the rich, white and bougie rather than an affordable choice for all. Simply put, this simply is no longer true.
I like to call this baby readiness questions.
We had a powerful conversation with Beny, a suicide survivor. He discussed the circumstances that led up to that moment, how he was able to get himself out, and the tools that helped him. We hope that in telling Beny’s story, it helps you identify stressors that could be leading you towards an unhealthy path and shed light on how you can build a toolbox from which to draw during tough times.
