Hi, I'm Athena!
Most of my life I didn’t exactly slot into where it was assumed I should. Ever since I was a little girl I had to fight to make sure I had the same opportunities as everyone else.
I knew I needed to change my world to get anything done, I knew that meant I might just change the world in the process.
What I didn’t expect was the emotional resilience that was needed to make change happen. Setting myself up not to be mowed over every time I advocated for progress was one of the hardest things to navigate.
I’m here to teach you how to take practical steps to get whatever change you want to see to happen. But I’m also here for you to understand and name the levels of emotional manipulation people use to shut progress down.
Those of us who want to be loving and have open hearts are often the easiest attacked by people who don’t want change to happen. Compassionate people are the motors of social justice, but this means we are the first to be targeted by those who don’t want change to happen.
Make Your Own Damn Tea is about finding the emotional resilience to change your world, while taking practical, down to earth, achievable steps to make change happen.
