An episode of sisters or seeeesters as we like to say! My younger sister Chelsea is an artist, writer, director, and photographer. She is currently finishing her senior year at Columbia College in Chicago studying screenwriting and film. 

 

Chelsea joins us for a raw and honest episode exploring childhood bullying, toxicity in social media, body dysmorphia, finding self-love and the things that help her maintain a self-care practice.
