Just what I need in this VERY WHITE FIELD OF WORK
I’m a Muslim woman of color currently working on my teaching credential masters at a very conservative private Christian university, and lemme tell y’all that this podcast is what’s helping me survive my program! Don’t get me wrong—I’m in a cool program with some dope professors… but ya girl is also one of like 4 women of color in the entire cohort, and definitely the only Muslim too. Finding my voice in that setting has been a journey and the journey would have been exponentially more difficult without Gera and Kevin to help put things into perspective once in a while (or even to just offer some comic relief after a long day of explaining to my white classmates how the world looks outside of their bubbles!). I feel like I have these two in my car or living room with me just chilling out and having a conversation that I’ll occasionally contribute to without their realizing; it’s just amazing. Keep doing what y’all are doing and stay dope!
