About the Podcast

In The Hilla
In The Hilla (الحلة‎ - Neighborhood)
A podcast that educates people from marginalized communities about different career avenues.

When I originally had the idea for my podcast, I was thinking of issues within my community. It is rare to see engineers, doctors, entrepreneurs, and equity owners in low income neighborhoods. At the end of the day people are a product of their environment and you can't be what you can't see. Therefore, I created this podcast to serve as an example. Through this platform, I hope to educate people about the different avenues that exist. And more importantly, break down how it was done as well as identify the challenges that can be expected.

I started doing interviews for my podcast back in April and started posting content on July 2020.

Thank you for tuning in!
Help keep this thing going.
