About This Show
GrUB is an acronym for Growing up Black and is a podcast about stories, topics, and ideas from people of color in all different ages, shades, and cultural demographics.
We often think that the situations and hardships that we go through are original when, more often than not, many people are going through similar, if not the same situations. From the way we've grown up, to the way we react to things on an everyday basis.
The main goal of this podcast is to create a forum for the diversity of the minority experience. Hopefully you hear something that you have gone through and are going through and realize that you are not alone and better days ahead. You may laugh, you may cry, you may learn, but at the very least, you will feel.
Think of GrUB as the radio version of Humans of New York for People of Color.

Ntim as we talk about how she’s gotten to where she is today. We discuss how she’s become a World Startup Ecosystem expert, how she’s dealt with loss, and most amazingly how she’s managing being an entrepreneur as well as a new mother and wife. It is an INCREDIBLE interview. The longer you listen, the better it gets. There are gems in here that are (literally and figuratively) priceless. Some key takeaways: 1.) If you think you know how to manage time: listen to this and humble yourself
