Living Your Truth: Ep. 01 Owning Our Stories with Hira Sameer Ahmed

Welcome to the first-ever episode of living your truth podcast with Hira Sameer Ahmed. In this solo episode, I share my story, why I do what I do, what did the journey of me getting where I am now looked like and also me explaining what this podcast is going to be about.

I have also shared the sentiment behind the phrase ‘living your truth out loud’ means to me and what it could look like for you. I share how I believe that owning our stories and loving ourselves through the process is the bravest thing we will ever do. I also talked about what does living a wholehearted creative life look life for me.

I hope it holds space for you to define success on your own terms and give you permission to follow your curiosity. Your journey doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s. You are allowed to carve a path of your own on your own terms and in your own way.
