Episode 10: Marisol Rosa-Shapiro

A New Yorker first, Marisol Rosa-Shapiro is Jewish Puerto Rican woman.  Her city and multiple layers of identity have shaped her; she discussed her experience with us. She shares her story of her recent visit to the Island (Puerto Rico); a visit accelerated due to to fear that the culture and essence will be lost due to climate change and a shameful response from the United States government. Great listen!

I am a Tsimshian woman. I am a mom. I am so many other identities but those are what resonate with my right now. I love listening to other people stories. I like sharing those stories and that is what I am doing with my podcast and blog Mixed Identity.
