S6E2: How To Break Through with Nicole D. Vick

A college professor, community activist, and public health advocate, Nicole D. Vick published her first book, a memoir, called Pushing Through: Finding The Light In Every Lesson.

She shares both the heartbreaking pain and the extraordinary triumphs that led her to advocacy and social justice work. Her story takes place against the background of the long-neglected and overlooked community of South-Central Los Angeles, where she grapples with the grotesque imbalance of power and privilege as it unfolds in every aspect of her life and those around her.  

It’s an inspiring story of triumph and purpose. 

In this episode: 

  • Realizing that you don’t have to be a statistic 
  • Where to find the inspiration to push through the toughest moments of your life 
  • Why continuing to push towards your biggest dreams
