I'm 32, unmarried, childless, living in sin with my boyfriend and am obsessed with my career, fart jokes and podcasts about murder. I'm also a bad cook, mouthy and disorganized. In the actual '50s, I probably would have been burned at the stake, or at the very least, prescribed some very fun pills.
In my world, travel is easy, jobs are plentiful, and the police are on my side. It would be easy for me to think this is how it is for everyone. It's not. Fact: I am privileged in this country just because I'm white.

I have just finished my coaching programs for the year and there is nothing more fulfilling than my clients looking back over our time together and reflect on what they have learnt and achieved.
In the early 1990s, the price of coffee fell below the cost to grow it. Many local farmers had to abandon their fields. Men in the village left in search of work. All the women were left with their kids and their babies. They said, 'We can sit around and wait, or we can do something.'
