Essential Self Love in Critical Times with Aicha Sacko and Cleo Wade

The first in our series of interviews conducted and edited by our 2019 interns in our radio mentor and big sis Nessa’s scholarship program at HOT97! In this episode Aicha Sacko and Cleo Wade discuss how self love sets the foundation for how we successfully navigate the world.

In this radio journalism intensive, each of Nessa’s interns chose a guest and topic they were passionate about, composed questions, conducted the interview and then edited the final podcast using professional audio editing software.

In Aicha’s words:
“The peak of the Nessa internship was definitely interviewing one of my good friends, author Cleo Wade, on the importance of self love and self care. A lot of times we forget what it means to love ourselves and take care of our bodies while we are busy working, studying and trying to make a difference in the world. In this interview I learned that it is okay to step back and put yourself first. As Cleo would say – I love you. ”

Enjoy this excellent and informative interview!
