Emilie Rodriguez aka DJ EMZ is a first-generation Mexican-Filipina from San Diego. Our Hella Latin@ conversation is so special because we cover a topic most people in our community don’t talk about—mental health. Together in this episode, we unpack our San Diego upbringing, our first-gen struggles, and how we're healing through self-care. Emilie vulnerably talks about her own experience with anxiety and how her Mexican-Filipino family navigated through their own trauma. This powerful womxn is on a mission to destigmatize conversations around mental health. She's currently launching a new IG page dedicated to affirmations and mental health resources.
