Guests: Cheryl Ann Wadlington, Shaleah Sutton, Robin Stevens
Young women of color face a lot of challenges: from body shaming and bullying to preparing for college and breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. In this hour of Radio Times we’ll talk with three women who are leading the way by helping teens of color in Philadelphia build their self-esteem and grow into strong, successful women. Marty will be joined in-studio by CHERYL ANN WADLINGTON, the founder of the Philadelphia nonprofit “Evoluer House.” She was recently named a “Champion of Change for Extracurricular Enrichment for Marginalized Girls” by the White House. We’ll also be joined by SHALEAH SUTTON, the founder of the annual Uniquely You Summit, and by ROBIN STEVENS, an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing who also directs Penn’s Social Media & Health Innovation Lab.
