Have you ever wondered how your various identities interact with each other? How does your role as a parent impact your religious beliefs? How about your physical abilities/disabilities and your job title?
During a video series recording with Jenny Medrano (Shift Program Manager at Building Bridges) I got the chance to experience this identity chemistry experiment first hand. I couldn’t believe all the profound ways my identities play with each other behind the scenes of every part of my life.
A couple months ago, Jenny asked me to be a guest on her web-series Intersectionality: Let’s Get Real. I initially had no idea what I was signing up for, but as any astute intern, I excitedly accepted the task and saved the worry for my diary. It was probably best I didn’t know all the details ahead of time because I might have bailed had I known what I was walking into.
