Honesty Is Amanda Seales’ Superpower

Actress, comedian, and social justice advocate Amanda Seales has never been afraid of speaking the truth. In this candid conversation, Amanda talks to Ashley about the cost of being honest. Recalling a classroom experience in which she corrected her teacher, Amanda reveals she learned early that speaking up for what she believed in can sometimes make others uncomfortable. However, as she grew older, Amanda realized honesty and authenticity are essential ingredients for transforming a society and culture deeply committed to sidestepping the truth when it's inconvenient. Although an unflinching commitment to honesty often requires boldness and courage, Amanda trusts the benefits of speaking the truth will always outweigh the cost.
