7. Brent Buffone – Finding Empowerment Through Culture & Identity

In today’s episode, Brent talks about his struggle of finding his identity and how his upbringing shapes his current perspective on life. With his parents divorced, his father and brother incarcerated, and only being able to see his mother on the weekends due to strict custody terms, Brent grew up in an environment that challenged him to take a complete 180 on the direction of his life.

Brent talks about how formal, informal, and cultural education allowed him to become empowered and bring focus to his life goals.
