Season 1 Short Clip: Maria Mwita | Realizing I'm Black
This is an excerpt from the Represented Podcast, hosted by yours truly. I interviewed my friend Maria and we spoke about the experience of moving abroad and contending with the culture shock of your skin color playing a role in interactions.
As she finds her way through life, education, and relationships, Maria maintains a high sense of self-worth; even at her worst. Having struggled with acceptance at a young age, Maria quickly learned to build herself up when nobody else would. In addition to growing pains, Maria attended a variety of schools in different countries, which further complicated her search for understanding. Today, this motivated Math major continues to face her fears and aims to help empower the next generation of African women to blow past their insecurities.
