    reflections on: how does your identity change over time?

    reflections on: how does your identity change over time?

    In this season's first minisode, we’re getting personal as I’m sharing a valuable lesson from Vovó (grandma in portuguese). Navigating a complex and ever-evolving identity can be confusing, to say the least, but today we breakdown why it’s normal. Confusion about your identity is a common human experience. We dive into how many identities we have accumulated and gathered through our lifetime. This is universal; you don’t have to be inbetweenish to be confused about who you are, but it definitely adds another layer of complexity. I hope this resonates, and I hope you can relate. And most of all, I hope you realize, you are not alone. We're all on our own journey of self-discovery.

White Label American Podcast ,

I LOVE IT!!!

I love it, Beatriz adds great value to the world through the In-Betweenish and I hope that she'll continue to bring more voices and stories to light. Love your work!

Heartfelt conversations worth a listen! ✨

I many interview shows I don’t feel like the host and the guest are having a genuine conversation. But in this show I do. In it, each episode explores identity, multiculturalism, language, and religion and all the many ways those things intersect for different people in very sensitive and deep ways. I am so grateful I found this show and can’t wait to hear the episodes that are to come! 🌻
