    Bonus: ESEA Sisters with Nicole & Rahel

    On this bonus episode of Don't Call Me "Exotic”, Annie is joined by Rahel & Nicole from a WhatsApp group turned activism platform ESEA Sisters. ESEA Sisters is a sisterhood formed of people of East & South-east Asian descent who identify as women, trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and any other genderqueer identity, providing a safe space in the wake of increased anti-Asian racism.
    Rahel & Nicole speak to Annie about how and why they both joined the ESEA Sisters group, overcoming internalized racism, why banana leaves in cuisine isn’t just an “aesthetic”, the frustration of which box to check pertaining to race on forms and how joining the sisterhood has changed their lives.
