In the pilot episode, actor Yaani King Mondschein shares the beautiful poem She Let Go by Reverend Safire Rose. 

 

As an actor Yaani is known for her work on Good Trouble, Sneakerheads, Bad Hair, Blood & Oil, and Saving Grace. Her exciting forthcoming project is the series Kings of Napa on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) expected Spring 2022.

 

Throughout the episode we dive into what it means to let go and the opportunities to do that simply.  The discussion swirls around faith, friendship, and relinquishing control over things we might be a little too precious about.

 

“I think, for me, what I got from this poem that stuck with me over these years, and I constantly go back to it, is that there are certain things you do just need to let go of, unceremoniously. And I know for me a lot of times I hold on to certain things that can be let go in this really simple way.”

- Yaani King Mondschein
