When we began our podcast journey several folks reached out to us about covering the multiracial Filipino experience. The question came to mind “What does it mean to be a multiracial Filipino?” This is a question that we knew we’d need an expert to share their experience and perspective.
In this episode we chat with Farzana Nayani, author of the new book ‘Raising Multiracial Children.’ Farzana shares her experience growing up in a Filipino and Pakistani household in Canada. How her upbringing combined with her University of Hawaii, Manoa graduate school focus on multicultural communications lead to her current path as an author, business and life coach, and diversity, equity & inclusion specialist. Farzana also shares how writing the illustrated guide ‘Being All Of Me’ with Multiracial Americans of Southern California transitioned into the book ‘Raising Multiracial Children’ with independent publisher North Atlantic Books and national distributor Penguin Random House.
