How to Value Yourself with Christina Hennemann
Play • 50 min

Christina was thrilled when she learned she had won a prize for her poetry, and the chance to publish a book. But she quickly noticed red flags as she was communicating with the editor in charge of her work – and things only got worse from there.

Jade chats to Christina about the importance of valuing yourself and listening to intuition while navigating the world of publishing, and beyond.
