Naila is a dear friend, who recently, as an adult, moved to a new country and is navigating through that experience and other life transitions including career.
Naila's immigrant journey: her family escaped from Tanzania to Canada. Naila was 6 years old.
In HER words:
What 'not belonging' feels like
Two key ingredients are needed for belonging to be felt.
Three types of connection that need to be paid attention: connection to self, to other, and to the divine.
What touches Naila: acts of kindness (listen to the audio to see where this discovery took her )
