    The Intersections of Andrea Darby: Scientist, Blerd, Biracial, Leader, Advocate

    The Intersections of Andrea Darby: Scientist, Blerd, Biracial, Leader, Advocate

    Co-host Jean and Andrea (Drea) Darby go back to UNLV Days circa 4 years ago. Jean initially met Drea as a student leader attending NEW Leadership Nevada 2018. Since then Drea has gone off to get a PhD at Cornell back east, far away from her home. She was born in The Bay Area but was raised in Nevada. They reconnected after Jean’s zine release, “Are You Filipino?” and fruitful conversations about being biracial were shared. Today, we honor and appreciate Drea for her time and the time difference to record this episode. We hope our BB listeners gain and grow from this conversation today about identity, Filipinos response to anti-blackness, and the importance of fandom in creating joy!

    Ep 24 of Komiks Kwentuhan on YouTube was really informative for me as someone who is an outsider to Pinoy comic history and more broadly, Pinoy nerd pop culture (PINERD). The 52 minute mark might be my favorite. *this video is primarily in Taglish*

American Pinay

I just started listening to your podcast and ya’ll mentioned being cut-off since you’re the youngest sibling (bunso). As I am too. My parents came to the US in the late 70’s leaving 5 of my siblings behind to be raised by my grandmother on my mom’s side. I then was born, and only one born in the US. I too was then raised by my grandma (on my dad’s side) in the Bay Area. During that time though, my parents were hella hustling - finding work all over California. My siblings were brought here to the US in the mid 80’s and by the early 90’s I was cut-off by not understanding my siblings and the way they were raised. My dad and mom would always say, “you wouldn’t understand because you’re the only one born here.” Again, I grew up without knowing my siblings very well. I felt alone. I didn’t want to be in the medical field after high school, I was shunned. I wanted to be in the architectural and engineering industry. I put myself to work, bought my own house when I was 24. Been living alone until I became engaged. Dude, my parents or my siblings never even spent a night or a weekend at my house! Where are they now? Living in the same city as my parents. I repeat history, I lived on my own again. “Cause I’m an American, I wouldn’t understand.”
