The UNNI Podcast – w/Anthony Ray
Anthony Ray joins the UNNI Podcast, and shares his survivor story; losing his father to incarceration and his mother to an overdose, all before the age of 10. Growing up in below poverty, and in the kinship care of his older sister; identifying as a Latino gay male, and surviving a mugging and hate crime attack- Anthony had all of the odds stacked against him.
Instead of adopting the mindset of defeat, hopelessness; and continuing the generational cycles of addiction, incarceration, and poverty- Anthony became a celebrity stylist, and social advocate, who works to help others realize their beauty, strength, and boundaries!
