Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Wisconsin Notes Podcast
Adeoti Ashiru joins us today! Adeoti is a first generation Nigerian American and grew up in Rhode Island before attending Northeastern University in Boston before eventually heading out west where she lives in Santa Cruz County today. While I have known Ade since 2013, I was eager to get to know more of her story. She talks about her parents and their relationship to racism, moving to the USA in their early 20's, and then raising two children in a predominately white neighborhood and school system. She speaks to navigating these spaces and finding her voice along the way. I also spend a lot of time gushing about her as a vocalist, which I hope you were able to hear for yourself on our instagram account. If you want to hear more, check out Baby And The Luvies on spotify. Thank you to Adeoti for this lovely conversation!
