Episode 35: Belonging as a Woman of Culture, with Kanchan Prinsloo

Have you ever pushed down parts of yourself to fit in? I’m guessing we all have.

 

What if you’re a person of colour? How does that complexify the story?

 

Today’s guest is executive coach Kanchan Prinsloo.

 

You’ll hear how Kanchan learned to fit in, because true belonging didn’t feel accessible to her – neither in society, nor in her own family.

 

Kanchan learned to “perform” vulnerability, connection and belonging.

 

She created a “second self” that felt acceptable and believable. Maybe then she’d feel enough.

 

But pushing down her truth (and the secret she was hiding) felt too much, and Kanchan realized that true belonging meant exploring who she REALLY was, under the façade of the performer and the “fitter-inner.”

 

Now in her mid-50s, Kanchan is owning her story – much of it for the first time, here on the pod. She’s still in the mess of the process, which is precisely why I invited her to speak to us. She offers practical tips for “women of culture” to help navigate their own explorations.
