023: "Why are you other-ing me?" Assimilating as a mestiza with Marjory Ware
Play • 1 hr 41 min

First generation Filipino/white woman, Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington State, and enneagram nerd Marjory Ware immigrated to America at 16 years old. Marjory shares the complexities of assimilating as a mestiza, how she finds validation in her practice as a therapist, and encourages our listeners to find "your people" - the ones that will accept you for who you are.
