What is your goal for Her Voice Her Story?
The goal for the podcast is to be a leading voice to showcase, inspire and connect women of color around the globe. We want women to know their voices and dreams matter and that the world is waiting to hear from them.

Detra Hickson is an Atlanta entrepreneur with a strong faith and a heart for helping others. Natalie Williams is a NYC entrepreneur who gets joy from providing career opportunities for others. Nigerian born Evelyn O turned her love for the beauty of Africa into an area wide cultural festive and fashion boutique.
Why was it important for you to highlight the experiences of women of color?
Women of color are looked upon with negativity in multiple areas of life. We are considered to be less capable in the work space, less than attractive, have poor parenting skills and difficult personalities. It is important to combat the negative noise with positive stories and examples of how fantastic and capable we truly are.
What are some of the issues and stories that connect women across the world?
Women are connected by issues of racial, educational, financial equity, community growth, love and family.
Name two famous women you would love to have as guests on your show.
Michelle Obama and Madame VP Kamala Harris.
Do you like to travel and if so do you ever see a time when you may do the show remotely, say in a place like Ghana?
I enjoy traveling and believe it expands the mind. HVHS will definitely record from remote locations with South Africa being one of the first.
How do people get in contact with you and the show producers?
We can be reached at email@example.com.
How would you describe your interviewing style?
My interviewing style has some structure but is more of a relaxed, organic conversational style.
Have you discussed on your show Covid-19 and the effect it is having on women in their personal or professional lives?
We addressed using the lockdown time to focus on self-care and taking time to work on personal and professional renewal. Women usually have many roles all of which became strained as we encountered COVID-19 so we did episodes addressing how to be a change agent while working from home, schooling at home…..remembering to extend grace to self and others.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I truly enjoy podcasting!
