Maria Khaydar

In this episode, Elina speaks to Maria Khaydar, a self-described “capitalist girl-boss by day and anarchist by night”. Maria currently works in the tech industry and is actively involved in amplifying ethnic voices and advocating for refugee and asylum seeker rights. She discusses her Syrian-Azeri-Russian identity and the expectations that come with that mix, and she and Elina examine the way they, as women of colour, police themselves and reject the notion of being a trail-blazer.
