No matter how scary it may seem, don't ever stop speaking your truth. It's easy to turn a blind eye to injustices, but is that what your soul really wants? Or does it long for you to be courageous and honest with what feels right? These are some of the questions Cat has been grappling with over the past few months and in this episode, she opens up about what's really been going on in her mind. She always makes a conscious effort to portray positivity and unity, but sometimes, things aren't so pretty and it requires attention.

Cat breaks down the importance of supporting "the underdog". These are the people who don't have a lot of money, followers, or clout but are out in the world fearlessly exposing their talents. Whether they're musicians, poets, painters, or podcasters, Cat believes it's crucial that they secure your energy and support. In the midst of their self-doubt and contemplation on whether their dreams are worth it, your encouragement can be the difference between a shitty day and a productive confident one. Cat is an advocate for everyone pursuing their dreams, but as an underdog herself, she understands the importance of a strong support system.Quote of the Week"Leadership almost always involves thinking and acting like the underdog.

She also challenges what it means to appear "acceptable" within the boundaries of Latin beauty standards. Inspired by Dominican singer Amara La Negra's recent defense of her unashamed Afro-Latina appearance, Cat proposes that this be the time all Afro-latinx's rise up to demand accurate portrayals across Latin mediums.Quote of the Week"As children of the diaspora, our identities have roots in the messy, complicated and ugly history of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Our memories are scattered across islands and oceans and continents.

17| Overcoming Self-Hate

It's common for many of us to dislike some things about our bodies. We often compare our bodies to that of others and think that life would be so much easier if only we looked like "so and so". But what happens when it becomes too much? For Cat, what started out as disliking some parts of her body ballooned into self-hatred and loathing. Her body began to develop earlier than most girls, so she was being sexualized by older men while still in her teens. She was body shamed by dance teachers and constantly reminded how much she "needed to change" from those around her. It's no surprise that over the years, this has all amounted to an intense feeling of not being enough and feeding her mind with vicious self-talk.Cat has finally begun to understand that this way of thinking is hurtful and self-limiting, and some changes have got to be made. There's NO WAY that Cat or anyone can expect to achieve the fullness of happiness and success with this kind of mindset.&nbsp;Along the

During a time where so many gaps need to be bridged throughout, society Cat acknowledges that her hyper-emotional/angered approach to activism is not the best route to take if she wants to provide solutions.

Cat chats about the importance of preserving your sacred energy and peace of mind by saying no to f*ckboys. It's clear that Millennial women are being exposed to fewer examples of healthy romantic relationships and as a result, many are settling for less than they deserve.
