If you heard last week's interview, you understand why we absolutely had to follow-up with Part- 2, today!
If you are new to the show or missed last week, let me reintroduce you!
A registered nurse, Kyana Brathwaite founded KB Caring Advocacy & Liaison Services (or KB CALS) to help people, families, and businesses find the best wellness plan that suits their various medical needs. Kyana’s clients go through an interactive and participatory process as she connects with health systems and the medical community, including insurance providers, to coordinate assistance and support for her clients. When she’s not busy helping others, she spends her time taking care of her husband and two gorgeous children.

In this episode, Kyana shares how she had her breakthrough while dealing with her own identity issues. She shares her identity journey, the challenges she faced and how she dealt with them as well as the significance of knowing what you want to give, what you’re open to receiving, and what you refuse to receive. She also shares why it’s crucial to break expectations and how honesty helps her continue to heal and have better relationships.

“Because I’m starting to get to know me -- because there’s a process, I can now open up and give other people grace and share that love.” - Kyana Brathwaite
