We reach season 1's finale with this special episode. They say the people around you have a big impact in shaping who you become; I agree, so I try to be selective with who I surround myself with. Today's guest is the person I've spent the most time with since September 6th, 2018. She has helped show me the importance of being vocal and more importantly empowering others to ensure they're being heard. She's brave, she's bold and today she explains to us what having a shared identity from two antagonistic countries feels like. Maesoumeh is American-Iranian, born in Tehran but bred in New Jersey. In this episode we discuss identity, what it feels like to be the odd one out, and how being an immigrant shapes your values as a person. Zebralingo.
