Voices Of Experience - Growing Up In Essex Special With Arooj Khan

Hi Pyario! 🌻

In this special episode of Voices Of Experience, I had a candid conversation with my close-friend Arooj Khan. During this podcast, Arooj and I had an honest conversation about our experiences of growing up in Essex as desi folks. Detailing our experiences we spoke about our white curiosities, the desire to fit in the 'Essex way of life' and the severe racism we experienced growing up and still experience till to this day.

While we recognise that South Asian folks in Essex make up a very small minority and that the audience we're catering to in this podcast is quite a niche, there are for parallels for other South Asian folks who have grown up in predominantly white areas.

We hope you enjoy our candid conversation.
