ABOUT THE HOST

5D7A2973.jpg

Hi, I'm Sangay aka Sandy aka the hostess with the mostess...OK forgive me that was super corny but that's also me. A lot of people ask me why I chose "There are levels to this chick" as my podcast name. Simple, I want to combat the stereotype that women like me are one dimensional.

 

I am a fusion of so many different cultures and experiences. I was born in Jamaica, lived there until the age of 11, after which I moved to the states, specifically MD. I was transported from a world where I had never laid eyes on a white person to an environment in which I was the minority in every new space I entered, overnight. I am a black woman, but I am more than my skin color. At one point in my life, I wanted to be Matlock, then I wanted to become a psychologist. I attained my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and realized I loved interacting with people more than I liked researching and writing papers so I moved into the world of hospitality. Now I  am taking the leap of faith to extend my advice and commentary beyond my daily girl chats and sending it out into the ethos.

My experiences molded me into the person I am today. I am a woman who has experienced hurt from others and also from my own mistakes. I want to help others like me as we traverse this land of Adulthood, which many did not get the proper tools to navigate. My intention is always to come from a place of honesty and love. You will not always agree with me, but I hope you can always say that I was respectful and sincere in what I am saying.

 

Know that this matters to me and I will be passionate, I will have moments where I am elated and moments where I connect to the pain and trauma of others around me. I am here, I would love to hear from you, to speak with you, to bond with you, and most of all to grow with you. So come join the anime-loving, video game playing, action movie watching, folk to rap music listen, beautifully eclectic chick on this journey.
