"It’s not really about competition, it’s about growing with each other" - Lainney Dizon

In this episode, we chat with The Drop and Dizon Dreams Founder, Lainney Dizon talks about growing up as a brown girl. In this interview, Lainney discusses dealing with other people’s perception, scrutiny, and expectation all while jamming to hip hop.

“I feel like being a brown girl you’re very unrepresented and underestimated. No one expects you to come out on top.”

Lainney also talks about the importance of being authentic in everything she does and including that in her social media persona.

“Be authentic and share your story, because no one else can share it - it’s your own to make.”

Audrey talks about her run in with the illuminati, dealing with haters, and her undying love for Oprah, Tupac, and Lauryn Hill.

"I attract authentic people if i’m authentic with myself." - Lainney Dizon
