    138: "I'm so high on being Pinay." Outdoor adventures, adoptee raised in Vermont, and returning to the motherland with Gretchen "TSUKI" Puddicombe
    Tsuki loves to describe herself as a cowgirl, lesbian, rock climbing and parkour coach. As an adoptee, she speaks fondly of her family, friends, and her outdoorsy upbringing in Vermont. It was during the BLM movement when she started to embrace her Filipino identity and plan for an epic trip to meet her biological family in the Philippines. She elaborates more on her childhood, what inspired her to start cooking, what she's learned as an adoptee, and much more. Shout out to Lish, Dee, Barbara (Tsuki's mom), and Paulette for joining us!

Episode 066!!! 💖🙌🏽

I came across this podcast awhile ago but was in the middle of an audiobook and listening to other podcasts at the time so I didn’t press play on an episode until I saw that Adelina Tancioco was one of your guests. I got to know Adelina through a volunteer opportunity and admired her speaking and the meditations and prayers she led, but I didn’t know her story until now. Wow! I’m so much more impressed by her now. I also admire your excellent hosting skills asking great questions and adding your intelligent insights. I’m a true fan now and will be listening more often. Thanks for providing this space for amazing Pinays like Adelina to shine!

I always felt from a very young age that I didn’t quite fit in anywhere. I couldn’t relate to the “white” kids and I always sensed I would have a different experience from all the older mestizos I grew up with. When I started college I realized that being Filipino-American was more than just a subculture. I really felt lost about who and what I was when I left home and returned. I felt like an outsider in the community that raised me. Through TFAW project, I get to hear stories from other mestizas/first gen FilAms which make me feel less alone in my life experiences and I no longer feel like there’s “something wrong” with me. I feel like I’ve finally found somewhere I do belong and that my experiences aren’t so unusual after all.
