Ep. 11: Passing the Glow Up
Kate and Yoko chat with role model goal Farah Sheikh, project manager at Squarespace and organizer of Feed and Foster, a dinner series for women of diverse backgrounds. We talk about peer mentorship, lifting up the underserved, and protecting safe spaces.
Suuuper congratulations to Kate’s grandmother (and model minority) Shofu Hisako Shohara for being awarded the Foreign Minister’s Commendation by the Consulate General of Japan, given to individuals who make outstanding achievements in promoting the friendship of Japan with other countries.
Yoko’s model minority is Dr. Priscilla Chan, a pediatrician and philanthropist who, along with her husband Mark Zuckerburg, founded the Chan Zuckerburg Initiative. They recently announced that CZI would be investing 3 billion dollars in Facebook shares toward preventing, curing, and managing all diseases by the year 2100.
