Living a Purposeful and Fearless Life With Sickle Cell, Safaa Peregrino – Brimah

Today’s guest is Safaa Peregrino – Brimah , a Nigerian-Ghanaian woman who lives with Sickle Cell. What I particularly enjoyed about this episode outside of the education piece is this young’s woman drive to live a life with intention. We talked about everything from the social stigma of being a “sickler”, accesses, emotional stress this illness brings on family and of course Sex.

My biggest take away from my conversation with Safaa is that YOU determine the fullness of the life you live and not the card you have been dealt. If only we could all be this courageous.
