🍄 being an "other" in a white majority — with Khairat

Have you ever felt "othered"?
On this episode, I speak with my old friend Mohamed Khairat, a lawyer, journalist and founder of Egyptian Streets. We discuss his upbringing growing up between Australia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and the Netherlands. As we navigate his experiences in the different countries, we touch upon discrimination, being white-passing, the desire to fit in, and faith. He also goes back to the origin story of Egyptian Streets and explains how it came to be. Tune in for an insightful conversation about growing up as a Third Culture Kid.
