WORLDY WOMEN is a podcast co-hosted by Cecilia Gragnani & Ana Torre about immigrant women and their stories. We interview women from all walks of life and we talk about how immigration has affected their lives.

We decided to start this podcast because we’re both immigrants and the immigrant experience can sometimes be a lonely one. We want our listeners to realise that they’re not alone, that others out there question their identity, their place in the world and struggle to reconcile two and sometimes three cultures. And we believe that by putting these stories out there perhaps we can encourage non-immigrants everywhere to look at us from a different perspective.

Episode 5

In this closing episode or our first series, we have bent the rules of the podcast and invited a male guest to share his story. We chat to Anna Oborotova, a Russian artists and art teacher, who shares her story of hope and determination. Anna dreams of founding her own art school in London. With Giulio Romano Malaisi we talk about home and how art is a unique tool to express one’s feelings of belonging as well as to create a bridge between cultures.

She discusses with us settling into her new home and if London actually became home. With poet Ankita Saxena we talk about creating your own cultural identity. She tells us about her journey from India to the UK when she was only 7 years old and how her love of poetry came from the women in her life.
