In this episode, Maxymilia opens up about how her upbringing profoundly influenced her educational, career, and relationship choices. Particularly, she discusses her initial struggles with the concept of marriage due to the lasting impact of her parent's influence, as well as her journey of healing and growth from those experiences.
