102: Amina Khorakiwala- Women Emerge!
Election time is upon us, so we thought it would be fun to bring you an episode from a woman who has actually run for something! Meet Almina Khorakiwala. She works in marketing for Microsoft in global events for their retail stores. But her passion is serving on the board of directors for "Emerge Maryland", a Political Action Committee that helps recruit and train women candidates for the Democratic Party. Before we got to Almina's political work, we got to hear about her time in Microsoft and specifically how she has seen things change how that there is a South Asian in charge. But then we then get to the timely topics! Almina peels back the curtain for us on her election story and shares with us the issues she faced not only as a woman but as a South Asian. And of course, since we're us, we discuss her decision to marry outside of her culture and learn an amazing surprise regarding her personal life!
