Raesha Ismail has grown up with multiple identities and we discuss her life story on this episode.  Born in New Zealand but with strong connections back to India and being a Muslim has meant many rich cultural influences on her journey.  What is it like to grow up in Christchurch?  And what are the type of questions we should be asking others we meet who might not fit a neat box?  We also talk about her work today as a counsellor, the loss of her brother in the March 15th attacks, and how that led her to join the Sakinah Community Trust which is a woman led charity of widows and others who lost siblings or parents and who are doing good work on uniting communities.  Check out their upcoming events to mark the anniversary.  This is one of almost 300 episodes so check the others out at
