Give yourself The Gift of Self-Love, a workbook to help you build confidence, recognize your worth, and learn to finally love yourself.
Today Mary is joined by Jenny Jay, a storyteller and creator and her experiences and education over the last 7 years has become integral to the content that she writes, creates, and shares. Add that to her lived experiences as a South Asian woman with experiences with in/visible disability, living unhoused and without financial security, and existing in her other identities. She recognizes the difference it makes when stories are shared in a way that recognizes your community and validates their experiences. Together, Jenny truly believes that we can make spaces — online, in our media, in our conversations, and in our businesses, spaces for change.
You will learn how to…
think critically about what you see on social media
what digital cultural appropriation is and how to avoid it
set boundaries in your digital space, whether you are a creator or consumer of online content

Jenny’s land acknowledgment from her email signature:
The Double Jay Collective Inc., was founded on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. More specifically, this land is covered by a historic treaty, the Ajetance Treaty [Treaty 19] signed in October of 1818, where the Mississauga Nation of the River Credit and Sixteen Mile Creeks surrendered their land and is the only treaty [known of] named after an Indigenous community member. It is important to recognize the layers & circumstances that lead to this signing, and that this land is still home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
While land acknowledgements allow us to engage in ongoing reconciliation by reflecting on the physical space we are on, as a company, our work now takes place in a combination of physical and virtual spaces. To continue to prioritize and centre reconciliation we will always encourage our team, clients, and community to take the time to learn about the lands they are currently on. You can do so,
