May is Mental Health Month in the US. This month is a chance for us to continue combating the stigma that keeps far too many silent. It’s a chance for us to tell and to highlight stories of lesser-known challenges. It’s a chance to declare a few statements we believe to be Black and White.
In the third and final episode of the Black & White Miniseries, host Chad Moses and TWLOHA’s Community Care Coordinator Bianca Mujica discuss the statement: “Nothing can take away how far you’ve come,” which also serves as the focal point for our 2021 Run For It 5k. During their conversation, Bianca and Chad explore themes such as progress and growth, and how things like relapse and challenging chapters are ultimately unable to erase either.
Bianca Mujica is TWLOHA’s Community Care Coordinator, meaning her work focuses on finding intersectional and creative ways to connect with people like you. She is a Mexican-American queer woman from Texas with a background in journalism and a love for language. Outside of work, she can be found experimenting with new art supplies, eating pasta, or making plans for her future animal sanctuary.
“You always find your way back to the good things, you always find your way back to the joy, and the happiness, and the love. And even though it hurts to be back in those dark places, the fact that you find your way back to them means you weren't always in them, you didn't stay there.”
This episode of the TWLOHA podcast was hosted by Chad Moses and produced by Rebecca Ebert. Music assistance was provided by James Likeness and Ben Tichenor.
