Accelerated by a global pandemic, youth are experiencing a mental health crisis unlike anything we've seen before.

  • There aren't enough clinical providers. For every 1,200 students there's only one school psychologist.
  • Lack of providers makes support inaccessible. Costs are high and waitlists are as long as 4-6 months
  • Support is reactive rather than proactive. Students don't get help until they reach a breaking ...

Previously on the podcast, Erica came onto the podcast to chat about how we can all level up our lives with side quests. As we dug a little deeper in our questions, at one point Erica shares that it gets into her life philosophy of believing the journey is more important than the destination (it’s even her go-to second date question). But what if you’re more like us and have habitually cared about the destination, but still crave t...

What holds you back from starting new things? Could reframing interests as "side quests" lower the barriers, expectations, and even the guilt of trying something totally different?

Have you ever wanted to hide a part of your identity or life from someone? As we grow older, we naturally become more aware of what biases and connotations our identity and history hold, and we could either look forward or be really reluctant to witness reactions and judgments from others. What if we took those insecurities, those what if’s, and leveled the playing field for all your love interests and gave you all the chance to pr...

Last week, Da Eun asked for Sophia's advice regarding the workplace. Today is Sophia's turn to ask for Da Eun's advice.

"A professional change in midlife can provide a much-needed reset—at least when you’re looking for a career that more closely aligns with your passion. But finding what you love, especially once you’ve gone down an entirely different path, can feel impossible."

"Would you rather like your crush more, or vice versa? If you couldn’t ask/share about someone’s age or career, what would you ask/share to get someone to choose you to go to Paradise?"
