EPISODE #11 | Tamika Rises Above Religious Hypocrisy

Pronouns: (she/her)

When Tamika is pregnant as a teenager, she stays silent about the hypocrisy of the church community members who judge her. Now, she tells her side of the story, and how she built a thriving life for her and her family despite the condemnation she faced then.

I look down at my belly. I can no longer hide myself. I know that the public shaming is in store for me.
