Filipinos & their stories should be told

I launched this podcast to highlight more of the art, creativity, and wisdom of the community leaders I’m surrounded with in the Filipino American community. Growing up, I never saw positive Filipino role models in media. I never saw our stories being told or celebrated. As a young immigrant, that was tough. This is my attempt at contributing.

This podcast is a celebration of our diversity, strength, and community wealth. It is a collection of conversations, sharings, reflections, and stories of our people, told by our own community. Take a listen.

Community Dialogue

This whole conversation—all the ones you’ve had with other guests—are examples for younger generations to listen to . To have a male Filipino and a female Filipino having a conversation like this is really significant.

Advice for Younger Selves

“To my younger self, I would tell her that it’s ok to be quieter. You shouldn’t feel ashamed for being that way because that perspective and experiences you go through as someone who is a quieter person is going to be incredibly valuable when you’re older. To be able to empathize with other perspectives and other experiences.”

Kuya Book 01 – Coming Full Circle by Leny Strobel / Overview & Thoughts

By |May 25th, 2020|Categories: Education, Podcast|

New project! This is the first experiment of exploring books on the podcast. I'll be giving an overview Leny Strobel's Coming Full Circle: The Process of Decolonization Among Post-1965 Filipino Americans. This is a pivotal book in FilAm literature and it has a lot of wisdom and lessons within it. It's an informal overview, with specific quotes thrown in to highlight the main takeaways. Coming Full Circle is a project of decolonization based off interviews with post-1965 Filipino Americans . Through a process that Strobel calls "fishing for knowledge" through books and interviews, she organizes themes of decolonization under the categories of Naming, Reflection, and Action. This framework is greatly influenced by Paulo Friere and his idea that oppressed peoples need to name the source of their oppression before they can enact change upon it. 11 generative themes of decolonization are presented, alongside a literature review of relevant material and research.
