Description

Join Sarah Michaels and her husband Zein on this enlightening episode of the Elated You podcast, where they engage in a deep and vulnerable discussion about their personal experiences with Islam, cultural identity, and the challenges of being Arab in a shifting global landscape.

Sarah and Zein open up about their contrasting upbringings – Sarah, in a non-religious Arab family in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood, and Zein, in a conservative Muslim environment. They explore the complexities of their identities, discussing the racism and stereotypes they've faced, and the personal struggle with their Arab and Muslim heritage.

The conversation takes a poignant turn as they reflect on the impact of significant global events, like the aftermath of 9/11 and the Trump administration's stance on Muslims, on their lives and decisions. They candidly share stories about changing their surnames to shield their children from prejudice and the deep-seated challenges of balancing their cultural heritage with their Australian identity.

This episode also delves into misconceptions about Muslims and Arabs, the pressure to conform to societal norms, and the journey towards self-acceptance. Sarah and Zein's dialogue is not just about Islam; it's a broader discussion on the importance of embracing one's identity, regardless of religion or background.

Listen to this episode of Elated You for an intimate and thought-provoking exploration of faith, identity, and the power of owning one's story.
