This week we bring you two stories of people finding their way to living their best life.
First, we hear from Terryl Lynn Foxx. Born under the astrological sign of Leo the Lion, Ms. Foxx is a native New Orleanian and an entertainer/model/actress who has perfected the art of illusion through 20 years of experience. She has appeared all over the gay cabaret circuit throughout the United States, as well as appearing on national television, music videos, newspapers and magazines, and the cinema. This piece details her rise to stardom.
This piece was produced by Nathalie Nia (Nate) Faulk in our podcast workshop. Nathalie was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and is a self described Ebony Southern Belle. Her work consists of Leadership Development, Performance, and Healing and Wellness practices. Nathalie also works with the Southern Organizer Academy, a leadership development and capacity building pipeline. They are currently accepting applications.

Jewel Williams told this story in front of a live audience. At the time she was a sophomore in high school. Now, at 18, she is studying psychology and English at Loyola University. She is proud of her New Orleans upbringing and super proud to be pursuing her degree here. She hopes one day to impact the community in several ways. This is the story of how Jewel, a New Orleans teen, came out to her parents with a little help from the Bard of Avon.
