Empowering through Education and Storytelling

By Anna Marie Cruz

On this episode with Justine Ang Fonte, we discuss her journey to becoming a sought after speaker and consultant on sexual health and wellness to co-creating a storytelling platform, now in its 4th year, that centers on Pinay voices.   A child of Pilipinx immigrants, Justine Ang Fonte is a sexuality educator and the Director of Health & Wellness at a K-12 private school in New York City. Justine is a consultant and speaker on intersectional health and sex education for teachers, parents, and students in both public and private schools across the United States. She is also the co-creator of Raised Pinay, an original production of Pilipina-American storytelling and benefit for the Philippine reproductive health non-profit, Roots of Health, of which she sits on the Board. She received her Master's in Education from the University of Hawai`i and her Master's in Public Health from Columbia University. When she's not fighting for reproductive justice, she is baking up new recipes and watching re-runs of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.   @ImJustineAF and justinefonte.com
