"My family had experienced the results of gang violence. My father was incarcerated at a young age. My grandfather passed away really young. And so I saw the women in my family really developed this strong sense faith and a strong sense of inner power. My grandmother was in town visiting me and I said to her, Grandma, you've been through so much. How did you get through it all? And she says, 'I never complained.'" - Sakina Ibrahim, Artist, Author, and Wellness Advocate

I believe life speaks to us in different ways. Many of us listen, but don't know how or where to begin. As someone who has crossed the bridge between life and death, I say simply begin where you are now and get busy living.
I've been seeking answers to some of life's most perplexing questions my entire life. In 2014 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, and ever since, I realized my calling existed outside of what I knew to be familiar. As a Board Certified Wellness Coach, #1 Best-selling Author, and Syndicated Columnist, my job is to ask the deep questions of those trying to make sense of their place in this fractured world. I created this podcast as a home for survivors like myself, and those who yearn to build resilience in their mindset and live their best life.
