As I continue on my anti-racism journey, I’ve found several accounts on Instagram that have taught me so much. When you follow a hashtag on Instagram, photos will often come up on your feed that will lead you to a profile you may not have come across before. This is what led me to Dr Tiffany Bowden’s profile.
At the top of her page, it says anti-racism educator, TED Speaker, Cannabis, Tech and Mental Health Influencer. As a TED talk lover who is chasing the depths of anti-racism and understanding how I can help dismantle the systematic and systemic racial structures in our society, as well as having had my own struggles understanding the different perspectives around cannabis use, all of these things sparked my interest!
Tiffany’s story is so deep. This conversation with Tiffany unfolded in ways I’d never anticipated. It is laced with so much resilience, perseverance, acceptance, and grace.
With full circle lessons accented by racism, mental health, self-worth and learning to let go isn’t quitting, Tiffany has spent her life working to better the health of those around her, empowering others to enhance their health and well being, and she advocates for the cannabis and mental health industries.
From a spinal injury to significant losses, business theft and hitting literal rock bottom, Tiffany is a force to be reckoned with. She’s dedicated and heart driven.
