"Dr. Chery's presentation, "Reclaiming Your Womanhood" was the highlight of our young women's conference! Her passion and personality were infectious and the presentation was absolutely incredible. She was an immediate role model to the young women in attendance."

Power of a Woman's Voice
Her Voice is Powerful
With growth I learned to stop shrinking for others. And I made the commitment to be more vocal as a black woman in medicine because students, future doctors, and my community need it. I use my voice to affirm for others that you can look me and succeed in medicine on your terms.”

Learning to find your Voice
The December26er Podcast
Dr. Chery recently was able to share in some dope conversation on trauma, healing, and learning to find your own voice. Dr. Chery got pretty candid about her experience with sexual assault, learning about herself, and redefining what faith means to her. As always, Dr. Magdala's goal with sharing her struggles and in particular, the not so glamorous parts of her life is to help others see how they have the power to write their story the way they want. Yes, things may happen to you, but they don’t define you. And no ones story is “picture perfect”. Don’t let social media fool you into thinking so.
