In DNA of a MAKER, host Lilliana Vazquez attempts to find out what are the traits that set high-achieving individuals apart. For Tarana Burke, the founder of ‘me too,’ it’s her straightforwardness, which she says she got from both her mother and grandmother; decisive nature; and action-oriented approach to life that has helped her to become a healer who doesn’t “facilitate bulls***.” Burke, a champion for women, notes that female solidarity, not a personal characteristic rather a societal one, is also a key contributor to her work and success.
