094: “You’re Asian American in a white space - do you even know what discrimination is?” Unpacking the intersectional experience of being a mixed Pinay with April Werle
Artist & Muralist, April Werle, joins us for an in-depth breakdown of how cultural dissonance manifests for mixed Pinays wanting to connect with their Filipina roots. From growing up with a strained family dynamic and experiencing repudiation from non-Filipinos, she shares how she’s used her love & skill for art/mural painting to evolve her own understanding of how she identifies as a Filipino American woman.
