About Real Life Conversations

Real Life Conversations is a series of conversations with activists and social justice leaders. In every episode, life coach, process architect and activist, Shamillah Wilson talks to these inspiring people about their extraordinary stories of life, leadership and activism.

While each conversation puts the spotlight on a guest and an area of their life that they have triumphed in, it also highlights the significance of our own life journeys and the often-overlooked achievements we have acquired and can share. Every person has an extraordinary story, and it takes real-life conversations to unearth them.

Join Shamillah Wilson on this quest to uncover human stories that prove how remarkable we all are.
