Femi M. Nassi, in her own words, is an in- betweener. Originally from the Republic of Benin in West Africa, she currently lives in Thornton, Colorado. She is the co-author of Ji-Sokeě: The awakening, a memoir in which she shares her first year of experience in the United States. In it, she develops and reflects on certain realities such as culture shock, diversity, race, mental health, and cultural identity. With Ji-Sokeě, she hopes to shed some light on the realities that many immigrant and international students face, while also providing them with support and a sense of community. When she’s not writing, she hosts the “In- Betweeners Podcast” where she discusses with folks from all over the world on a variety of subjects including race, sexuality, relationship, self-identity, and mental health. Through it, she hopes “to build a bridge between worlds, one human being at a time, by sharing untold and unknown stories and creating a space of discovery, education, and understanding.” She believes that everyone has a story worth sharing and aims to provide such a space to those who don’t always feel heard or seen.
