Cultural Identities Lost in Translation? Explore Cultural Identities with NAAAP Boston!

What is it like growing up bi-cultural in the US? How does social media affect the development of cultural/racial identities? How did your parents pass on their cultural heritage to you? How would you approach passing on your heritage today?

Join NAAAP for an engaging discussion with Linda Charmaraman, PhD, Research Scientist at Wellesley Centers for Women, about growing up bi-cultural. Be a part of the discussion and contribute to social change!

About the Speaker: Linda Charmaraman Ph.D. was raised by Thai immigrant parents in South Central Los Angeles, CA. As she pursued her graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Charmaraman discovered an untapped topic and population:  how social media influences the development and resilience of at-risk adolescents. In addition to her research in adolescent identity and development, she is working on developing culturally-inclusive online health interventions for vulnerable adolescents and young adults.
