A Celebration of Motherhood: A Mom on a Mission to Help Other Moms Shine

Today, I caught up with Nikki Osei Barrett, Co-Founder of District Motherhued and The Momference. Did I mention she’s a super-busy wife and mom of three?  Nikki shared her mom journey, from the beginning, in her teen years through the pursuit of her education and on to the launch of her boutique public relations firm and the creation of a dynamic organization for moms of color.  In case you missed it, click the link above and listen.  (Original Air Date:  Friday, March 20, 2020)

As we continue this month’s theme of Celebrating Black Motherhood, I caught up with Alina Patton Jones, a dynamic mom who shares her experience balancing the needs of her beautiful family while crafting a multi-faceted career as a community activist, social worker, model, and author. Her secret to making it all work? She calls it “a practical positivity focused on making the best of the present while believing in the future and conquering her insecurities in a visible way, inspiring others along the way.” Check out our conversation here.
