In Conversation with Strongest UK Woman Andrea Thompson - Just Wow!

[Strongwoman Andrea Thompson](https://www.instagram.com/AndreaThompson_Strongwoman) joins the Women Bridging the Gap family to discuss race and womanhood, at the hearth level. She grew up in England and not knowing Black history, and in this episode describes what it’s like to not only be the top of her field in Strongman, but to be the only top Black woman, and yet still not get the recognition the way her White counterparts do. That systemic racism is so deep and so ingrained that when George Floyd was murdered and race became a conversation, it caused discussion, disagreement, and distance, leading to Andrea’s separation from her husband and father of her kids. Listen to hear her tell her story about that. Lenya and Alexandra discuss with Andrea more about the George Floyd murder, about the Derrick Chauvin trial, and what the reaction might be if the worst case becomes reality and he is found not guilty. You’re going to want to be prepared for this. There is also a deep discussion on body image, and a revelation that the most body shaming you’ll receive could be from yourself instead of from others. And talk about the COVID 15 and how people want to lose the weight they gained during the pandemic.
