What a FIERCE, FABULOUS episode! Natasha Jung takes us on a journey through the inception and continued growth of Cold Tea Collective, a 25-strong, volunteer-led organisation that tells stories for, by and about Asian Millennials. We talk finding your niche, engaging your stakeholders, building an authentic community, and creating lasting relationships. Natasha is, in our opinion, a true pioneer of facilitative leadership, and champion of anti-racism. One of Kristina’s absolute heroes, Cold Tea Collective is a safe space to share stories without having to explain yourself – it’s about celebrating a shared culture. We spill the tea on when to launch, overcoming imposter syndrome, on knowing what’s ‘enough’, and when (and HOW) to get paid. If you are building a new community, looking for one, or enjoy learning and understanding the wonderfully different ways that we create connections within our chosen and lived societies. We love how honest, passionate, clear and humble a leader Natasha is, and we know you will absolutely ADORE her as much as we do. Enjoy, BBs!
