    Season 2 is a wrap! Before saying our goodbyes this year, we wanted to reflect on our podcast / community project and how it has impacted us personally and professionally, as well as our sisterly bond. Jasmine is currently preparing for another COVID-19 impacted school year and Mellissa is on a spiritual journey to finding herself again. Thanks to all of our listeners and special guest speakers for being on this 1+ year journey with us! A brand new season will kick off in January of 2022.

    52 | Forgiveness & Healing (feat. Rose Khun)

    52 | Forgiveness & Healing (feat. Rose Khun)

    Rose Khun has experienced the unimaginable. When she was 7 years old, she experienced the death of her father, John Chan Khun, who was robbed and killed at his video store. This heartbreaking circumstance had forced Rose to grieve alone & to grow up very quickly. For a majority of her life, Rose had been unaware of the trauma that she's carried. Since uncovering this deep trauma, Rose has forgiven her father's murderer and begin her healing journey. She now embraces her inner child and continues to work on strengthening herself from deep within. We want to thank Rose for having the courage to be vulnerable and sharing her powerful story with all of us in hopes that it will help others in similar situations & to also honor her father, John Chan, and his legacy. He was a positive role model in her life, family, neighborhood, and community.

    51 | Self-Love & Self-Care (feat. PichMony Thay)

    51 | Self-Love & Self-Care (feat. PichMony Thay)

    In a heart-to-heart discussion with PichMony "Mony" Thay, we discuss the value of prioritizing Self-Love & Self-Care. When Mony was in high school, he got severely bullied and did not have anyone to talk to regarding his sexuality. This led him to depression and having suicidal thoughts. Today, he is deeply motivated to help those who are struggling with their own sexuality and mental health. Mony is now proudly out of the closet, has a supportive family who understands him and his passions. He gives back to his communities through podcasting and social media, focusing on topics related to mental health which are often shunned by our Khmer/Asian culture.

    Learn more about Mony by following him on Instagram @zac.avocado @monuspeople @noggincambodia.

    50 | Life Updates: Checking in with the Sisters

    As we approach mid-2021, we'd like to take a moment to check in and share what's been going on with all of our listeners. It's been a wild 6 months. For Mellissa, she's unexpectedly dealing with major life changes. For Jasmine, she's faced the toughest school year as a teacher. Now that we are vaccinated, we are hopeful things will start returning to our new normal soon which means we will finally get to spend time with our loved ones without having to wear our mask and be afraid any longer.

    49 | Life Skills: Navigating Adulthood (feat. Tanaka Nhong)

    49 | Life Skills: Navigating Adulthood (feat. Tanaka Nhong)

    Reaching adulthood status is a huge milestone! As a young adult, it can feel both exciting and daunting as you transition into the real world and start discovering a newfound freedom & a world of endless possibilities while navigating a unique set of obstacles and experiences. Coming from an immigrant background, you may find yourself lost and alone on this journey with little to no support from your parents, relatives, and friends. As your 2 Khmerican Sisters, we’ve got your back! We offer some insights into what our early adulthood years were like and guidance into “adulting” although we still feel like we’re always learning. One of our loyal listeners, Tanaka Nhong, helps kick off this much needed dialogue and asks us a few burning questions, like our experiences of transitioning from high school to college, college into the workforce, graduating without debt, being a first time homebuyer, basic financial tips & other life lessons.
