Shaping your own path – with Akua Konadu

I am sharing these wonderful photos with Akua Konadu, we did for the first Episode of the Podcast “Don’t Mind me!

What started as a casual interview with wonderful people sharing insights on their life path, has turned into a bigger personal project with audio and more photos.

We chatted with passionate, kind hearted and gorgeous Akua Konadu. Akua is former Miss Minnesota 2015, and a strong advocate of the No more campaign to end domestic violence and sexual assault, Akua now works as a social media strategist and she is pretty awesome!  I invited her to talk with us about mental health and anxiety through her personal journey and share what she has learned with us.

We chat about starting a different career path, dealing with anxiety and loneliness,  the importance of having a support system, finding your identity and building a business!

Some of my favorite words!

“I could easily be in a group of people and even just one on one, people would have no idea what I was going through because I am the type of person that I just want to paint a picture that everything is perfect and that everything is fine.”

“I had to sweep all those issues down the rug and I now it was kind of tripping into them constantly”

“You do need people that love you through your brokenness, like they love through the good times and they love you through the bad times and having grace free and having grace for yourself.”
