This episode we invite our first special guest this season Daisy Turong and we discuss the complexity of API Identity and Intersectionality. We dive into our own personal stories and experiences we had due to our intersecting identities, and ways we’ve overcome them.
Here at Making Waves we try and illuminate the experiences of Asian & Pacific Islanders at Oregon State University. Facilitating dialogue surrounding culture and diversity, we hope to dive into some of the complexities of the Asian & Pacific Islander experience through topics such as pop culture, social identity, multiculturalism, etc. Among many of the topics we wish to cover, we hope that you can resonate with our stories, as well as expose yourself to some new ideas and perspectives.
