This episode is all about Lenya Wilson’s background, parents, and journey. Alexandra asks the questions and dives into The Goddess’s history with Georgia, Australia, New York, and California, as well as The One’s Puerto Rican and Black roots, a racial struggle that preceded any Black and white divide for Lenya. Explore a bit what it’s like to raise a Black child in Australia, a country with a very white centered culture.
Hear more about how Lenya got into fitness, CrossFit, and powerlifting, and discover where racism is deeply ingrained where you might not expect it. Also, get the backstory for Lenya’s instagram handle, which is also That Bitch’s preferred pronouns.
