Self-Care Session: Overcoming Anxiety and PTSD as a Women of Color with Aisha Beau Johnson

In this episode, I have an empowering conversation with Aisha Beau Johnson who’s a writer, digital content creator, and speaker, specializing in beauty, lifestyle, and wellness.

Prior to her career as a digital content creator, Aisha was a fashion publicist. During her career as a fashion publicist, she planned and executed a number of press events, New York Fashion Week shows, and brand launches.

We discuss overcoming anxiety, people-pleasing, and PTSD in order to take back control and step into the most empowered versions of ourselves.
