Episode 5: Vernelle drops mad knowledge 🎤 (FEAT. VERNELLE)
2021 Jun 1455m 5s
For this episode, we are joined by the forward-thinking and inspirational Vernelle! We discuss his upbringing, how we all ended up meeting each other, his educational path, and his current goals and aspirations. Vernelle brings an important voice to the table: one that’s on the road to success, but for him, there’s more to life than just success. He strives to bring connection between the successful and soon-to-be successful: to expose triumphant people of colour to children of colour, and to show them there is a path to success for everyone. We hope you enjoy this wonderful episode.
