She joins Ara on this week’s episode of #TheTamilCreator to discuss taking a break to work on her mental health, her goal of driving social change through conversation with On Canada Project, code-switching, ending silos so we can “stop letting sh*t divide us,” being followed by Ryan Reynolds on Twitter, how silence is violence as it pertains to critical issues, and much more.

"The Tamil Creator" is a podcast started by me (Ara Ehamparam) to celebrate, spotlight and learn about the brilliance among Tamil creators globally.  I want you to feel like you're a fly on the wall eavesdropping on a conversation that is a combination of educational, inspirational and entertaining.
