Episode 5: Everyone Deserves to Rest
Kyra discusses the challenges that come with being the child of an immigrant in the U.S., always pushed to doing her best and be constantly productive. We discuss the critical need for Black and Brown people to find ways to just rest and her journey to accepting that who she is in fact enough.
In fact, Kyra Assibey-Bonsu is enough. She works on all things that highlight the lives and stories of underrepresented communities by advocating for those who do not have a voice or a platform. She has worked on projects that support marginalized communities across the globe, from students under the caste system in Bihar, India to Syrian refugees' relocation in Argentina. She is an urbanist and is passionate about immigration and migration justice, and produces her own podcast, No Country for Moving, where she discusses socio-cultural issues of immigrants.
She was also a founding board member of BlackSpace and is a current Laundromat Project Create Change Fellow.
