As Filipina, Feminist and Foodie Ms. Justine Ang Fonte was growing up, she soon discovered that not everyone was "woke with their ancestry." It was thanks to American comedian Rex Navarrete that she was inspired to celebrate her ancestry and explore how fun it is to be different. Justine shares her work as a health educator, the importance of setting boundaries, and how founding Raised Pinay brought together her two biggest passions: her motherland and sex education.
