The one good thing that’s come out of this pandemic is how much I’ve been able to network, especially online. Many have led to in person meet-ups. The nature of how we are connecting to people has changed since the onset of the pandemic. Those that were formerly camera shy have relocated themselves to the front of the lens. Those that have never imagined online dating are finally finding love. New friendships are emerging everyday amongst people that have shared interests. Seeing people connect with people they would have never connected with offline is beautiful.
This was the case for Mila and I. We hadn’t met before the pandemic but are both alumnae of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Mila graduated in 2008 and I in 2013. We have hella mutual friends on Facebook and our mutual friend Chynna connected us.
Initially the connection was for Mila’s podcast- The Pieces of Mi. On the podcast, Mila shares all of the pieces of herself which include mom shit, political shit, human journey shit and real hot girl shit.
On this week’s episode, Mila, JaLissa and myself take a deep dive into our relationships with black folks and the church.
