 36. First Gen Struggles: Perfectionism, Imposter Syndrome & Mental Health | Natalie Torres-Haddad of Financially Savvy Latina

Buenos dias, mi gente! In episode 36, we’re talking with Natalie Torres-Haddad, MPA, AWA, from @financiallysavvylatina. I am SO excited to be releasing this episode for you this week— we talk all kinds of relevant info, but our focus around mental health seems so important to highlight right now during BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month.⁣⁠⠀

Natalie is a two time TEDx Speaker known for her talks “The Foreign Language of Financial Literacy” and “The Confidence Gap.” She is an international Award-Winning Author, the bilingual podcast host of @financiallysavvyin20minutes, a keynote speaker and educator. After her challenges with student debt led her to battle with depression, Natalie felt inspired to advocate for mental and financial health to be taught in all schools and work environments. What a vision!⁣⁠⠀
⁣⁠⠀
This episode is filled with so many gems, and I can’t wait to hear all of your thoughts and experiences in listening to Natalie’s story.

In Episode 36, Natalie and I discuss:

  • The experiences of being a first-gen in multiple ways (including our Education fields, families, and workplace)⁣⁠.
  • The PTSD that can come from growing up in divested, minority communities⁣⁠.
  • The severe impact our financial lives can have on our overall well-being, and how this can impact people at any age⁣⁠.⠀
  • Our misinterpretation of the word “humble”—women of color often diminish what we have accomplished and the challenges we have overcome to get to where we are, but it’s because we are raised to think that we need to be calladas, to be quiet about our successes for the sake of others⁣⁠.

  • The difficulties in becoming profitable as a creator and entrepreneur. Here, Natalie is talking specifically about women of color who are made to feel bad for charging for their services and expertise.

I make this podcast to share stories like Natalie’s—stories and experiences that maybe a lot of us can relate to, but feel like we are the only ones to be experiencing. Thank you for your honesty, Natalie.⁣⁠⠀
