So you’ve arrived in a new destination, a new culture – different than your own. Or perhaps you simply grew up in a different culture than your parents did and are realizing how much of an impact that has had on your perspective of life. You start to notice that some people consistently like to ask or insinuate the question “where are you really from?”. In that moment you feel as if you belong everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Sound familiar?
Maybe it’s the color of your skin, your accent, or receiving strange looks from the locals on top of the overwhelm of travelling that may make you feel as if you don’t belong anywhere. Have you ever felt that?

It can be exhausting and emotionally draining having to explain to others the challenges that women of color face. In fact, it can be so overwhelming you may choose to ignore that part of your identity entirely.
