Episode Sixteen – Third Cultures, Spaces, Owning Your Space
Harpo speaks with a sense of authenticity, outlining her progression through a scarcity mindset, through academia, cultural differences, and extensive self-awareness building, this badass has created her own home within herself, and is sharing that space with you. We talk about leaning into the universe, equipping herself with the framework to succeed, and then letting the wave of serendipity take you on a journey towards self-fulfilment. Harpo talks about her decision-making process, from embracing the ‘third space’, educating and allowing, the clash of collectivist vs individualist cultures, and so much more. Harpo is a self-effacing, ambitious, calm and collected human. Our chat with this fellow lifelong learner will leave you feeling inspired, curious, explorative and informed.

Harpo is a passionate homegirl. She is a brown girl who adores being a brown girl. She’s navigating and unpacking her own brown girl guilt, while continuously exploring what a world without that guilt looks like for herself and her didis. She loves conversations, creating space, taking space, and cultivating space. A space she really loves exploring is the third space in which hybrid, bicultural identities thrive & survive.
