We speak with the founders of Eye of an Immigrant, an initiative led by two high schoolers working toward immigration reform and better support for the immigrant community. We also chop it up with chef Jayaun Smith, a 25-year-old professional chef who has curated several pop-up shops across the metro and is a personal chef for local NFL stars and celebrities.

Curious to know what we’ve been checking out lately? Here’s a list. 

Here’s our reading and listening list:

  • This Throughline episode “Nostalgia Bone” really struck a chord. Many of us have thought about pre-pandemic days, right? That’s nostalgia.
  • DIY home remodels were trendy in 2020 but this Harvard study says it’s unlikely to continue. 
  • Not everyone had a new project or hobby this past year and that’s OK, say wellness experts. Read this Washington Post article to learn why it’s OK if you weren’t productive.
  • The Atlantic launched a new column last year called “How to Build a Life” and this one is a nice read. It’s a good reminder to do things that are good and meaningful for you — as in tailoring activities to what you personally need.
