"I want girls that are growing up like me or women that experience what I've experienced to know that you are beautiful, regardless of the colour of your skin, regardless of how you look, because beauty starts with you."
Racial prejudice has finally been brought to the forefront of our lives and people are now taking action to change it. Eltrisa Bryant is one woman who has been creating change since long before people started waking up. Her mission is to help women feel more confident. Is that you?
Confidence starts in owning your worth, and whilst Eltrisa and I live on opposite sides of the world we found many commonalities in our experiences and our road to healing.
In this episode, Eltrisa shares her story and experience of the journey to self-love and confidence as a Black woman. She is leaving a legacy so that her daughter never has to grow up hating her skin.
Eltrisa shares how she "unlearned ugly" and how as a Healing and Confidence coach she now helps women heal from past trauma, and build their confidence and self-esteem. The keys to being more confident are about loving who you are and facing your fears with boldness.
One thing I loved in my chat was Eltrisa was how she explained how to work on your own self-love even when you have no support, because whilst support is amazing, sometimes it isn't available and that's when it is so important to tune into how you can support yourself. She also shared some useful practices and affirmations to help with this.
Eltrisa is a Confidence Coach. She's spent most of her life hiding in the shadows of others because of low self esteem and a lack of confidence in herself. Her mission is to pull purpose out of women and young girls and help them build the confidence needed to operate in their full potential.
