Episode#3 with Teona 🇬🇧 - “It’s kind of not a big deal in Berlin, you will never surprise anyone if you say ‘oh, i have my period’.."
In this new episode, I sat down with Teona, one of my friend here in Berlin. As I told you once, I'm a lucky one because I'm surrounded by fantastic & inspiring people. Teona is one of them.
We shared a great moment and had great conversation. And we talked about many things: Menstruating in Berlin compared to Tbilissi (Gerorgia), how first intros to periods are often kind of secret or mysterious and why it's a "women business"
