Lisa – Artist and Homebody

Lisa discusses life as a Canadian raised in a culturally Indian household, and reflects on what it was like to be called "exotic" and regularly asked about her ethnicity. She explains how she went from a materialistic teen to having an epiphany in high school and realizing that she wanted her life to be less focused on physical possessions. Lisa talks about what it was like to deal with depression for multiple years while attending college, how her depression gradually subsided, and the freedom and happiness she discovered when she moved out of her family home and began living on her own. After being driven crazy by the commute and time required from a standard 9-5 office job, Lisa found a solution to regain her time and her sanity.

  • Chalet Jean-Baptiste – Professor and Author

    Chalet shares what it was like to grow up in Brooklyn, New York and witness the effects of the crack epidemic which gripped her community. She shares stories of growing up in a strict household with high expectations and excelling in school, sneaking out and clubbing as a young teen, and stories of close-calls and tricky situations. After leaving for college at sixteen she became a successful young professional and went from earning $50k/year to relocating from Brooklyn to Dallas, Texas and at times struggling to make ends-meet on as little as $1,000 a month for a family of four. Today Chalet lives in Virginia and is a Professor, as well as the author of Black Dresses Stain, Relive, and most recently Black from Scratch.
