Nadia shares how her family is from an East Indian background, and she grew up in a rural town with mostly farmers and ranchers. She voices the importance of bridging many cultures. She notes her mom is a strong woman, and her dad broke the mould of the traditional male and helped with caring for her and her brother. She indicates the importance of assuming positive intent because the world is not binary and dichotomous.
