Feeling seen, heard, and affirmed is such a gift

As a Lao/tian American womxn constantly wavering between self-love and self-doubt, it’s incredibly inspiring to have these stories out there—and having this space made, led and supported by such strong Lao Americans/Southeast Asian Americans. Growing up, I didn’t have many spaces where I felt psychologically safe to talk through my emotions—esp. feeling like I was straddling two different worlds and trying to truly figure it what it meant to be both Lao and American. I felt like I wore a mask for a long time. The stories on this podcast have reaffirmed and validated for me my own value, while giving me a sense of community and a deep love for that. Powerful. Such a gift. You don’t have to be Lao to have this resonate, but it sure does add to it.

Rita's giving us what we've long needed

Incredibly powerful to listen to a fellow Lao American woman talk about the vitality of healing and love. Our communities, our generations need this. Thank you so much for the work you do, Rita!

Rita is literally Daring Greatly!

I didn’t grow up with any Lao kids in my block— I went to all the 4 levels of school without having a Lao friend nor did I understand who I truly was | Lao Parents, American Society — the mix is harsh, complex but beautifully unique | — so to have a leader like Rita sharing it real and raw is not only helping me learn so much about myself, but she’s paving the way for so many others!
