What's Your BS? - Channa's Blessons Story

Hello wonderful women of the world! My name is Channa Smith, but to social media, I am known as Channa Weird. I enjoy discussing music, but I also enjoy speaking on mental health, and normalizing the conversation surrounding it. From here on out, I will be posting testimonials from amazing people of Blessons, and asking “What’s your BS story?” I know you all have experienced tough times in your life, you internalize it to the point that you can’t talk about it, but we want to start sharing these stories and let people know that they are not alone, and that you are still capable of making it out of the situations that occur. 

This video that I’m posting today is the first ever video interview I’ve ever done on mental health for my site, ShesSoWeird.com, and I wanted to share this with you all. I hope that you all enjoy and comment!

Thank you!

Channa Weird

She’s So Weird is a site created by music lover, Channa Smith, who sometimes goes by the name, Channa Weird. In girlhood, she was always referred to as “weird,” because Channa was unlike her peers. Instead of letting it negatively impacting her esteem, Channa embraced “Channa Weird” and transformed it into the fabrics of her personality. What became her Facebook name, so that family couldn’t find her, ultimately became her professional and artistic identity! Channa Weird is a Southside native of Chicago that studies Public Relations and Music Business Management at Colombia College Chicago. In 2016, Channa launched her website ShesSoWerd.com as the CEO/Founder promote music and inspire an audience to a new taste of music. ShesSoWeird.com aims to support Channa Weird and her effort to discuss music, artists, mental health, personal struggles with her mental illnesses, and coping mechanisms for people who struggle with getting a grip on their own mental illnesses as well. “Music is my escape and my outlet, and I know people love to hear incredible new music, but I also enjoy helping people. I use my website as an outlet for myself and other people,” says Channa Weird.
