As a first-generation immigrant to the U.S., in high school, Aida Vazin found herself in a multicultural melting pot. As a natural observer, she found more similarities than differences in the family lives of her classmates, even though many had varying cultural and religious backgrounds. Aida built upon her experiences by studying psychology, anthropology, and cultural dynamics to gain a unique perspective on cultural identity. She has dedicated her career to assisting other first-generation immigrants to embrace their history and culture through mindfulness and the power of choice. She joins Host Mike Domitrz, to share her enlightening perspective.
