DISCLAIMER: This episode might have some topics that can be triggering at this time. We named this episode "Don't Panic" to give perspective on the good things, and the bad things in life, and to encourage everyone that there can be a light on the other side of trauma and pain. In this episode, Serita & Rebecca chat with their good friend Sarah Menacho, who happens to have been through more tumultuous times in her travels, but hasn't let those times stop her from moving forward and seeing the world. This is Sarah's story and we just wanted to tell it because in some way it amazes us and gave us a little bit of hope in this time.
