Lisa Bien, a professional marketing strategist and Temple Public Relations Professor, created Bouncing Back in an effort to give Temple students and other viewers insight into their own misgivings concerning self worth while presenting real life examples of personal struggle with self acceptance.
Host Lisa Bien talks to two trans guests who share their stories. Drea Richard, owner and operator of the Andre Richard Salon in Philadelphia with more than 20 years in the beauty industry, transitioned over two years ago and is now helping others by sharing her story. Hazel Edwards is an artist, community advocate and educator working towards trans liberation as an outreach specialist. Both discuss how they knew they were trans, how external and internalized transphobia made them afraid to transition initially, and how their approaches to transitioning differ.
