S3E7: On being biracial women and bloggers with Rida // Before and Again

In this week’s episode, I chat with Rida of Before and Again about our experiences of being biracial women. We talked about:

  • Growing up with a name that people make fun of or pronounce incorrectly
  • Rabya’s Instagram Stories about being invisible online and being a “white-passing” woman
  • Why we sometimes choose to “whitewash” ourselves despite having pride in our heritage
  • The importance of being political and speaking out – even if clumsily – on our platforms
  • The emotional labour of educating others about racism and privilege
  • Rachel Cargle’s free 30-day challenge, Do The Work
  • Amplifying as many voices as possible as an ally

And more. Listen here or on Apple PodcastsSpotify or anywhere you usually get your podcasts.

    Thank you for bringing this topic to the air. It’s a much needed conversation we need to have. Many of us have given away part of ourselves our culture our heritage to assimilate and survive and now having to unravel and heal how we lived. This is an important step in healing, knowing you are not alone.
