Khmaus ,

Thought provoking topics with so many relatable experiences

Even though I didn’t grow up in the United States like the lovely sisters in this podcast, I could still relate to so many of their experiences. Growing up as a Cambodian woman in Australia and being apart of a minority group comes with so many challenges. Knowing that others have faced these challenges and gone through similar experiences, gave me, I guess you can say, a sense of reassurance that I wasn’t the only one.
Such a relatable podcast to listen to no matter where you are from.
