Ep. 92: Suzie Strong is an award-winning, Los Angeles-based photographer and director.  In her photography work, she specializes in creative portraits and fashion.  She directs and shoots feature films, short narratives, music videos, experimental shorts, promos and fashion shorts.

Suzie also has a fascinating multiracial heritage, with Lebanese, German, Irish, English, Spanish, & Native American roots.  Interestingly, her family immigrated to the United States through New Orleans, rather than Ellis Island, and her family culture and traditions mainly reflect the culture of New Orleans which Suzie calls "a beautiful quilt of many types of people."  She adds: "Our home was always a southern island on the west coast. We also honored our Lebanese background with lots of Lebanese cooking!"

Listen as Suzie explains her Lebanese (and other) roots and the juxtaposition of those with New Orleans culture.  And, hear how her ancestry and heritage have informed her life and work.

Ep. 90: Selena Anduze is originally from the island of St. Croix in the West Indies.  She is French, Danish, Swedish, Puerto Rican, Native American Indian, Algerian, and Jewish - in other words, quintessentially multiracial.  And, in St. Croix, where her family was a prominent one (her grandfather was a Senator), race wasn't really an issue of contention.  That changed, however, when she moved to Atlanta and was confronted head-on with issues of race, racism, and discrimination.  This period of her life caused her to struggle with questions of self-confidence and identity, but over time (after a pit stop to undertake a career as a naturopathic doctor), Selena found her footing, as she moved back into acting - a lifelong passion.  And, now you can see her on tv, including on the reincarnation of the popular tv show "MacGyver."
