Connections

I relate to this podcast a lot as a daughter of immigrants. Whenever I listen it feels like I’m connecting to my identity and my heritage. I’ve been listening since the original Mija, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop.

Gorgeous!

I just binged season one and feel the love and closeness of all my PR family in our casa, those here, those long gone, and those still dreaming. Thank you for sharing your beautiful story and reminding us of our own stories.
