Meet Dr. Maya Warren - An African American Female Ice Cream Scientist

Dr. Maya Warren loves all things ice cream. She has studied the science behind it, she eats, sleeps and lives it. And she may be the only African American ice cream scientist in the United States. And she is a winner of the Amazing Race!

Listen to her story, find out when she realized ice cream was her passion and what she is working on now.

It's a really fun interview, and just the pick me up we all need right now.

*NOTE: this interview was recorded a few weeks ago hence the reference to the U.S. Open. Enjoy!

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
