¿QPM? 13: Searching for Identidad.

Amy Gastelum

After an abusive childhood in Mexico, Amy's grandfather started telling people he was Italian. He says, “nothing good comes out of Mexico. Nothing."

His identity is his business, but Amy knows she's not Italian. As a mixed race Latina with no cultural connection to Mexico, she struggles to express her racial and ethnic identity. 

In this episode, our host Paola Marizán shares with co-producer Mareea Thomas how moving from her home country at age 6 made her feel displaced, how domestic violence lead her and su mama to be refugees and how now that she's older tiene que encarar and deal with depression; which is a taboo topic in the Latino communidad because it can be viewed as a sign of weakness.
