Hiba, Aby, Preya and Tegan focused their podcast on South Asian women immigrant and their experiences with schooling. Their sample included young and more middle aged women, yet they found that participants had similar experiences in relation to schooling. For instance, despite the fact that South Asian immigrant women are among the most educated in Ontario, they often earn less money than other immigrants (Gupta 1994). Student researchers found that language was a significant barrier for their participants, despite having learned English in their nation of origin. They also found that family members, particularly parents, had high expectations for participants to excel in the schooling system. Finally, they faced social exclusion including racial and gender discrimination. We are unable to make the podcast public due to our responsibility to protect participants' confidentiality.
