Find Your Voice, Change Your Life

Updated: Jan 30, 2023

Recently, I was invited to join my friend, Dr. Doreen Downing, on her platform to share my personal story about what has impacted my life the most regarding finding my voice in the world.

What I love most about this interview is that sharing moments like this with Doreen is like having coffee with an old friend, sitting by a fire in a snowy cabin during the middle of winter with a cup of hot cocoa. She is an absolute pleasure to spend time with and is an expert in helping individuals find their voice.

Here is a little more about Dr. Doreen Downing: After earning a degree in Sociology in the 1960s, my life path led to Malaysia as a Peace Corps volunteer. I realized that at the core of social problems were communication and relationship issues. I returned to get a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley and began my private practice in the 1980s.

Melahni Ake joined Dr. Doreen Down in episode #88 of the Find Your Voice, Change Your Life, Podcast.

Start with where you are today like I did learning to play Ice Hockey at the age of seven.

I could have let many things stop me

1: Never having ice skated before in my life

2: Being the only girl in an all-boys league

3: Our family not having the finances to support an expensive sport

yet I chose to learn strategies to focus on where the puck, my life, was going instead of where it was.
