    All A's for these Young Warriors Battling HIV in School!

    in Health

    ABOUT THE SHOW

    It is a known fact the USA gets a big fat “F” for poor sex education in schools! Let’s face it, the CDC states that 1 out of every 4 new HIV infections reported is a young human life between the ages of 13 and 24! Regardless of your beliefs in sex education (abstinence only or more comprehensive approaches) this nation is facing a serious public health crisis and something has to be done about it! So we are bringing to you two amazing  young high school leaders who are paving the way for HIV prevention and awareness in their high school! Attention school administrators and educators across the nation: you might just learn something and start an HIV Awareness Club in your school! We will talk about issues facing teens and we will offer some profound, successful solutions! So get ready! Pack your lunch (or in this case dinner) and join us on February 7, 2016 - 9 PM (EST) / 8 PM (CST), because we are all going back to school!

    ABOUT OUR GUESTS

    Ewuraba Annan and Jimmy Demiro are the co-Presidents of the Staten Island Technical High School HIV/AIDS Awareness Club! Under their dedicated leadership, the members of this club work to educate students about safer sex, while simultaneously working to eradicate HIV-related stigma! Every year they are tasked with bringing in speakers who are living with HIV to share personal experiences. These students, while on their way out to college to continue their mission to empower youth to make healthier life choices, will share their experiences as co-Presidents of their school’s HIV Awareness club, share their insight about what’s really happening “behind closed doors” and what they believe are the solutions needed to change the public health crisis of HIV.

    Please join me as I talk to Pierson and his mom about his life with OCD and Tourette's Syndrome, how he stays motivated, and what his plans are for future advocacy.

    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST MEN

    "The Secret Enemy Within"- FIRE & ICE on KLJN 107.7 w/ Taralyn & Soul Kitten

    in Radio

    DESCRIPTION


    KLJN 107.7


    When most people hear the words, “mental illness’ oftentimes they associate it with negative connotations cultivated by societal views and personal stigmas. For example, the fear of being labeled “crazy” by their peers, family, and shunned in their communities is a major issue why many Americans shy away from discussing the topic of mental health/mental illness particularly minorities.


    Why is this topic so taboo to many of us? Mental health/mental illness continues to be a topic that many are unfamiliar with and lack proper understanding due to the stigma associated with fear of the unknown and being ostracized in society. 


                According to the World Health Organization, mental health is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community,” (Mental Wellness/Your Health/UNC).


                “Psychological health refers to an individual’s overall state of mental well-being, incorporating emotions, stress, mental illness, sense of belonging, connectedness and life satisfaction,”(Psychological Health: Safety, Health and Wellbeing).


    PRODUCED: TARALYN 


    HOST: Soul Kitten & Taralyn


    SONG CREDITS:


     


    Jill Scott – The Light of the Sun on My Back


     Kendra Ross- Real Deal

    The Cardi B Effect: Why Women Love to Hate on the Bad Bitch

    in Pop Culture

    "There is a stigma associated with being a bad bitch that delineates the type of character women want to associate themselves with. As if being goal oriented, driven and alpha is a bad thing. Here's what happens when women place societal isms on other women, we become competitive. We become unfriendly. We begin to other. We become the mean girls that tell other girls they can't sit with us. We become bitter. We become petty. We become categorized in memes. We become fetishized through a patriarchal lens on what real women should be. We become the reason "I only have guy friends."


    In her most recent essay, The Cardi B Effect, Maria Rodriguez discusses the dangers of categorizing and judging women who seemingly decide to take control of their lives, their sexuality, and commit to living life on their terms by any means necessary. Tune in Sunday, January 10th @ 9 pm as we discuss the essay that has taken social media by storm. It's a candid discussion on why women love to hate on the "Bad Bitch" #thecardibeffect. 


    Read the essay here and dial in tomorrow and make your voice heard

    Depression which manifests itself in many forms, is commonly misunderstood in our society. And as such many are sidelined, and also unable to optimize their potential, tormented by this illness on a daily basis.


    We will interview a United States veteran, who overcame depression, and has great advice and solutions to our listening audience.


    This will be a great program where many will be set free, from the battle of depression, fearful to share with others their struggle because of the stigma the society attaches to depression.
