Regardless, it’s nights like this one where I was thankful to have a sweet guest with me –– one who saw the importance of two people being entertained for the sake of art, for the sake of a human connection.

Yoni Ki Baat

And while each woman carried her own sense of poise, confidence and individuality, I couldn’t help but notice a threading theme that connected these different voices: Being the best version of yourself.
