EPISODE #1 … here we gooooooo! I’m super pumped and grateful to kick off the Rise Higher Podcast with my friend and the uber talented singer, singer and songwriter, Yasmine Yousaf of Krewella, who pushed through a devastating setback when one of their bandmates left that launched a wave of sexist online abuse.

Yasmine’s key practices allowed her to break through this difficult time in her life, stay true to her values and to rise above the lies. Today, Yasmine is as a symbol of female empowerment. If you’ve ever felt like a victim, make sure you listen into this insightful and moving episode.
