Who Are We? – Youth Aloud Podcast Episode 5

In this week’s episode, Youth Aloud field reporters, Hawi and Sophie, ask youth to answer the question, “Who are you?” When asked this question, people tend to answer with the easily identifiable parts of ourselves, such as ethnicity or hobbies. However, when they dig deeper, Hawi and Sophie uncover much more about what those aspects of identity actually say about our beliefs and values.

They explore the importance of names, family history, aspirations, culture, interests and belief systems. We also hear from two Bay Area teens about a few life lessons they’ve learned and how they’ve turned those into principles that guide their actions.

“What we believe in shapes how we act and who we are.”

We hope you enjoy the interviews and youth perspectives on what makes us who we are!
